Being able to count on a regular backup of your appliances is essential. Indeed, performing a periodic configuration backup (daily, weekly or monthly) makes it possible to quickly reconfigure a firewall in the event of a disaster (hardware failure, configuration error causing malfunctions, etc).

From version 1.0 of its firmware onwards, Stormshield Network’s Firewalls offer the possibility of automating this backup operation in order to store output files either within the infrastructure suggested by the Stormshield Network Cloud Backup service or on an HTTP/HTTPS server within your infrastructure.

This feature allows the administrator to be freed from having to plan configuration backups and therefore removes the risk of forgetting to perform this operation.
