Cisco Network Management Solutions ConsultingAn abundance of network management tools from Cisco and other suppliers highlights the value and complexity of maintaining networks. Progent's Cisco qualified network management engineers are expert at assisting companies design management strategies based on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build powerful mechanisms for network utilization and latency, viewing important router and switch performance metrics, and identifying traffic patterns, processes, and devices that use available services.

Progent can help customers to deploy a broad selection of free and proprietary monitoring and management utilities to manage a Cisco-powered environment. Utilities familiar to Progent's engineers include Cacti, Nagios, Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, Cisco Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager, Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and NetMRI.

Network management platforms can enable organizations to be aware of current network utilization and effectively prepare for downstream capacity expansion. Management tools can also be used to highlight inefficient or improper utilization of network services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer file exchange, etc. that can waste expensive or limited network resources. An efficiently designed network management plan can also enable organizations to arrive at intelligent decisions on wide and local area network upgrades once they understand how much system bandwidth really needed at any one time.

Putting an efficient network management platform in operation ahead of time is essential to prevent major disruptions that can result from DoS attacks and malicious viruses. These assaults can render the network unstable and in the absence of appropriate utilities it can be time consuming, and sometimes practically impossible, to discover the location of the trouble.

Cisco Security Manager is a highly functional but easy-to-use solution for managing all facets of device configuration and policies for Cisco firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and Intrusion Prevention Systems.

  • Ability to build a common firewall rule database for Cisco platforms with intelligent evaluation of firewall policies to detect anomalies within the rule table
  • Quickly set up site-to-site, hub-spoke, full mesh, or extranet Virtual Private Network interfaces with a few mouse clicks
  • Compatibility with Cisco ACS for granular role based connection management to appliances and management functions
  • Operation with security MARS to correlate events against related firewall rules to support faster management decisions and enhanced network availability
