Network management systems assist companies to deploy network infrastructure efficiently, access user information rapidly, monitor network health, troubleshoot issues, defend against and react to cyber attacks, and optimize performance. Network management systems can spot inefficient or improper uses of network services such as streaming media or peer-to-peer file sharing that can waste bandwidth, reduce employee output or allow data leaks. A well crafted network management environment can also help organizations to make smart network enhancement moves by exposing tendencies in resource demand for various periods or activities.
