Cisco Network Management Solutions Consulting FirmA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other suppliers underscores the value and complexity of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's Cisco-certified network management consultants are experienced at assisting businesses develop network management strategies based on SNMP, Syslog, and Cisco NetFlow to create effective mechanisms for tracking network utilization and latency, viewing important router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic profiles, processes, and appliances that use available resources.

Progent can help customers to deploy a broad range of free and license-based monitoring and management tools to maintain a Cisco-powered environment. Tools used by Progent's consultants include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Monitor Manager, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management platforms can allow organizations to be aware of existing network utilization and effectively prepare for downstream capacity increases. Network management tools can also be used to identify inefficient or improper uses of network resources, such as streaming video, peer-to-peer file exchange, etc. that can waste expensive and limited network bandwidth. A well crafted network management plan can also enable organizations to make intelligent decisions on wide and local area network enhancements once they recognize how much system resources actually needed at specific times.

Having an effective network management solution in operation in advance is vital to prevent major disruptions that can result from Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses. Such assaults can leave the network unusable and in the absence of appropriate tools it can be difficult, if not virtually impossible, to identify the source of the problem.

How Progent Can Assist Your Business with Network Management Solutions
Progent's Cisco-Certified network engineers can help you to utilize Cisco's network management utilities in combination with a variety of effective open source and proprietary programs to create a comprehensive network management toolkit to keep your network functioning smoothly, consolidate valuable resources, secure your data, recover quickly from hardware failure or malicious assaults, and allow you to expand or reassign network resources effectively and affordably as your organization evolves.

Progent can also assist you to utilize network management tools to monitor and classify network data to implement traffic shaping, which allows you to program routers to enforce a variety of throughput restrictions on designated types of processes based on the priorities you specify. By buffering and sorting excess packets above your contracted volume, and by assigning preference to critical processes, traffic shaping can prevent Internet Service Provider overage penalties from spiraling out of reach and/or avoid gaps in worker productivity resulting from indiscriminate policing of your network traffic volume limits during peak demand.

Progent's CISM and CISSP security professionals can help you to develop a comprehensive security plan that incorporates your network management processes, and Progent's remote and in person support experts and Cisco CCIE and CNA qualified engineers can use advanced network management technology to identify and remediate trouble quickly to keep your IT system running smoothly.

    Progent provides technical support for medium size companies who have 100 to 250 network clients. The medium size company or office has traditionally been an overlooked part of the market for IT consulting expertise. The cost structures and support access models of major third-party support firms make them too expensive for the ordinary mid-size business or small medium business (SMB), which usually has a modest IT budget with which to maintain an information network whose advanced technology and sophistication are frequently comparable to the networks of much bigger companies. Progent's service delivery model, which takes great advantage of online service, virtual network infrastructure and 24x7 network monitoring, significantly reduces the IT maintenance expenses of a small-medium business while offering the mid-size organization with big-company service from professional, world-class consultants knowledgeable in a wide array of small business network solutions.
