Cisco Network Management Solutions Professional HelpA wealth of network management products from Cisco and third-party suppliers highlights the value and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco-certified network management consultants are experienced at assisting businesses develop network management strategies based on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build powerful mechanisms for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, monitoring important router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic patterns, processes, and devices utilizing available resources.

Progent can assist businesses to utilize a rich range of open source and license-based monitoring and management products to manage a Cisco network. Tools used by Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can help organizations to understand existing system utilization and intelligently prepare for downstream capacity expansion. Management tools can also be used to detect poor or inappropriate utilization of network resources, such as streaming video, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can use up valuable or limited network resources. A well planned network management strategy can also help companies to make intelligent decisions on WAN and LAN improvements once they understand how much system bandwidth historically required at any one time.

Putting an effective network management solution in operation ahead of time is critical to prevent major problems that can be due to DoS attacks and dangerous viruses. These assaults can leave the network unusable and in the absence of proper utilities it can be time consuming, and in some cases virtually impossible, to discover the location of the trouble.

Network Management Tools from Cisco
Cisco has developed a variety of effective tools that should be the foundation for any network management strategy. Utilized in combination with the top outside vendor applications, Cisco's network management offerings can improve the competitive value of networks for companies of all sizes by improving important areas such as system utilization, performance, availability, protection, repair, and scalability. Cisco's top network management tools include:

Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager is a web utility that allows you to configure and monitor the software on network appliances. Cisco ASDM is installed by the network device, and allows you to configure, monitor, and control the device.

Monitor Manager is a comprehensive management application designed to address the requirements of small and midsize companies. Cisco Monitor Manager actively monitors important device parameters on voice/data environments serving 5 to 250 workers and equipped with as many as 250 Voice over IP phones. The application offers:

  • Real-time scanning of key appliance parameters on small and midsize business-class network appliances, Communications Manager Express, Unity Express, security devices, WAPs, and VoIP phones
  • Ability to manage the Cisco Unified Communications 500 for organizations with as many as 50 users
Cisco Monitor Manager monitors the system on a 24x7 basis and periodically touches and collects identification and performance-monitoring information from the managed devices in the network. Cisco Monitor Manager is a Windows-based application and is entirely transparent to system processes and does not deploy any agent software on managed devices. Monitor Manager offers a rich set of valuable features and benefits including:
  • Network discovery and topology
  • Device and process looks at Unified Communications implementation
  • System wide inventory logging and documentation
  • Advanced security and reliable communication
  • Cisco device performance monitoring

By running Cisco's Smartports mechanism, Network Assistant streamlines configuration, deployment, and ongoing administration and support of Cisco-powered environments. Network Assistant provides a centralized network view and allows network administrators to deploy its functions across switches, routers, and wireless access points.

Cisco Security Manager is a feature-rich but easy-to-use application for managing all aspects of device configuration and security policies for firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). Security Manager efficiently manages even small environments with no more than than ten devices, but also expands to manage enterprise systems composed of thousands of devices. Scalability is enabled through intelligent policy-driven management techniques that can streamline administration. Highlights of Security Manager are:

  • Supports provisioning for Cisco routers running a Cisco IOS security image, ASA 5500 firewalls, Cisco PIX security appliances, IPS 4200 family sensors, and Catalyst 6500 family security services modules
  • Reacts more quickly to attacks: specify and apply new security policies to many hundreds of appliances in a few easy steps
  • Intuitive graphical user interface offers exceptional ease-of-use
  • Multiple looks that offer flexible methods to control devices and policies including the capability to manage the security environment visually on a topology image
  • Comprehensive video training for the new user to accelerate training period
  • Centrally specify which policies are shared and automatically inherited by additional appliances to make sure corporate policies are configured regularly, at the same time providing optional flexibility to modify policies at the local appliance level
  • Capability to build a common firewall rule database for Cisco platforms with intelligent evaluation of firewall policies to detect conflicts in the rule table
  • Easily configure site-to-site, hub-and-spoke, full mesh, or extranet Virtual Private Network links by means of a VPN wizard
  • Integration with Cisco Access Control Server (ACS) for low-level role based connection control to appliances and management functions
  • Integration with Cisco security MARS to compare events against corresponding security appliance rules to promote quicker management decisions and enhanced system availability
  • Ability to assign particular jobs to every administrator in the course of the implementation of a policy, with structured change control and tracking; permits the security and network operations team to act in sync as a single group with efficient teamwork
