Network management platforms help organizations to deploy network infrastructure effectively, access client information rapidly, track system operation, troubleshoot issues, protect against and respond to cyber attacks, and optimize performance. Network management systems can help detect inefficient or inappropriate uses of network resources such as streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can burn up bandwidth, lower employee output or leave you vulnerable to data leaks. A prudently crafted network management solution can also help companies to make smart network enhancement moves by exposing tendencies in resource demand for different times or types of tasks.

Traditional Network Management Tools from Cisco and Others
Cisco Network Management Solutions Professional HelpAn abundance of network management utilities from Cisco and other suppliers highlights the importance and difficulty of network management. Progent's seasoned network management engineers are expert at assisting businesses develop management solutions based on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), SYSLOG services, and NetFlow protocols to build powerful mechanisms for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, monitoring important router and switch operational characteristics, and identifying traffic patterns, processes, and devices utilizing network resources.

Progent can help businesses to deploy a rich range of free and proprietary management solutions 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, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can help organizations to be aware of existing system usage and effectively plan for future traffic expansion. Network management utilities can also be used to detect poor or improper uses of system services, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer file exchange, etc. that can eat up expensive or limited network bandwidth. A carefully crafted network management strategy can also enable organizations to make intelligent choices on wide and local area network improvements once they understand how much system resources really required at various times.

Putting an efficient network management platform in place beforehand is vital to avoid major disruptions that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. Such assaults can leave the network unusable and in the absence of proper utilities it can be time consuming, if not practically impossible, to identify the source of the problem.
