The Zero Touch Provisioning feature has the function of facilitating and speeding up the implementation of new Blockbit UTM to be managed by GSM. This functionality automates the process of installing and configuring new appliances, requiring only a valid connection to be made available during the first access.
After making the addition and connection of the appliance, when turning it on for the first time, the UTM will be installed, all settings of the UTM installation wizard will be detected and carried out automatically, the certificate will be valid, any device template that has been configured will be implemented and any policy package that has been pre-configured will be applied automatically.
Through Zero Touch Provisioning the operational cost, technical level and the possibility of human error are drastically reduced, since at the physical point of the network it is not necessary to do anything more than just connect the appliance and turn it on.
