Network Management Solutions ExpertiseA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other vendors underscores the importance and difficulty of maintaining networks. Progent's Cisco qualified network management consultants are experienced at assisting companies develop management solutions utilizing on Simple Network Management Protocol, Syslog, and Cisco NetFlow to create effective tools for tracking network bandwidth usage and latency, monitoring key router and switch performance characteristics, and identifying traffic profiles, applications, and devices utilizing network resources.

Progent can assist businesses to utilize a rich range of open source and proprietary monitoring and management solutions to manage a Cisco-powered environment. Tools used by Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can help IT administrators to understand existing network usage and intelligently plan for downstream traffic expansion. Network management tools can also be deployed to detect poor or inappropriate utilization of network resources, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can eat up expensive and scarce network bandwidth. A well planned network management solution can also assist companies to make informed choices on wide and local area network improvements after they recognize how much system bandwidth historically needed at any one time.

Having an efficient network management platform in place in advance is essential to avoid severe problems that can be caused by Denial Of Service attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. These assaults can leave the network unusable and without appropriate tools it can be difficult, and in some cases practically impossible, to discover the source of the trouble.
