Network Management Solutions ConsultingA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other suppliers highlights the importance and difficulty of maintaining networks. Progent's seasoned network management engineers are expert at helping businesses develop management strategies utilizing on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Syslog, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build powerful tools for network utilization and latency, monitoring important router and switch performance metrics, and recognizing traffic patterns, applications, and devices that use available resources.

Progent can assist customers to deploy a broad selection of open source and proprietary management utilities to maintain a Cisco-powered environment. Tools familiar to Progent's consultants include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Network Assistant, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, Adventnet Netflow, Big Brother, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management platforms can enable IT administrators to understand existing system utilization and intelligently plan for future traffic expansion. Management tools can also be used to detect inefficient or inappropriate uses of network resources, for example streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can eat up expensive or limited network bandwidth. An efficiently planned network management plan can also help businesses to make informed choices on WAN and LAN upgrades once they appreciate how much system resources actually required at specific times.

Putting an efficient network management system in place ahead of time is vital to prevent major problems that can result from DoS attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. Such events can leave the network unusable and without proper tools it can be time consuming, and in some cases practically impossible, to identify the location of the trouble.

Security Manager is a powerful but simple to operate application for managing all aspects of appliance configuration and policies for firewalls, VPNs, and IPS. The solution effectively manages even small networks with no more than than ten devices, but also scales to control enterprise networks with thousands of devices. Expansion is achieved through smart policy-based management techniques that can streamline administrative overhead. Key features of Security Manager are:

  • Allows control of Cisco routers configured with an IOS security software image, ASA 5500 family adaptive security appliances, Cisco PIX firewalls, IPS 4200 sensors, and Cisco Catalyst 6500 security modules

  • Ability to build a single rule database for Cisco platforms with smart analysis of firewall policies to detect anomalies within the rule base
  • Quickly set up site-to-site, hub-and-spoke, full-mesh IPsec, or extranet VPN connections by means of a few mouse clicks
  • Integration with Cisco Access Control Server (ACS) for low-level role based connection management to appliances and management functions
  • Integration with Cisco security MARS to associate monitored data against corresponding security appliance rules to promote quicker decision making and enhanced system up time
  • Ability to allocate particular tasks to each administrator in the course of the deployment of a policy, with structured change management and logging; allows the security and network operations team to work cooperatively as a cohesive unit with efficient coordination
