Cisco Network Management Solutions ConsultingA wealth of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the value and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco-certified network management engineers are expert at helping companies design network management solutions based on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build effective mechanisms for network utilization and network latency, viewing key router and switch performance metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, processes, and devices that use network services.

Progent can help customers to utilize a rich range of free and proprietary management tools to maintain Cisco infrastructure. Tools familiar to Progent's consultants include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager, Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow, Big Brother, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management platforms can help organizations to be aware of existing network utilization and effectively prepare for downstream capacity increases. Network management tools can also be deployed to detect inefficient or inappropriate utilization of system resources, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer file exchange, etc. that can eat up expensive or limited network resources. A well planned network management strategy can also help organizations to arrive at informed choices on system improvements after they appreciate how much system resources really required at specific times.

Having an effective network management platform in operation in advance is vital to avoid severe problems that can be caused by DoS attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. These assaults can leave the network unusable and in the absence of appropriate utilities it can be difficult, and in some cases practically impossible, to find the location of the trouble.
