Network management platforms help companies to implement infrastructure efficiently, access user details rapidly, track network health, debug problems, protect against and react to threats, and maximize performance. Network management systems can help detect inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services like streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can waste bandwidth, lower worker output or enable data leakage. A prudently crafted network management solution can also assist companies to make informed network enhancement decisions by showing tendencies in resource demand for various times or jos.

Legacy Network Management Tools from Cisco and Others
Cisco Network Management Solutions Professional HelpA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other vendors highlights the importance and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco-certified network management engineers are expert at helping companies design management strategies utilizing on Simple Network Management Protocol, SYSLOG services, and Cisco NetFlow to build effective mechanisms for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, viewing important router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, applications, and appliances that use network resources.

Progent can help businesses to utilize a broad range of free and license-based monitoring and management solutions to maintain a Cisco network. Tools familiar to Progent's engineers include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Network Assistant, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow, Big Brother, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management platforms can help IT administrators to be aware of current network usage and effectively prepare for future capacity increases. Management utilities can also be used to highlight inefficient or improper uses of network services, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can use up valuable and scarce network resources. An efficiently designed network management strategy can also aid businesses to arrive at intelligent choices on WAN and LAN upgrades once they recognize how much network resources actually needed at various times.

Putting an efficient network management platform in operation beforehand is vital to prevent severe disruptions that can result from Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. These events can leave the network unusable and without appropriate utilities it can be difficult, and sometimes practically impossible, to find the location of the problem.

  • Easily configure location-to-location, hub-spoke, full-mesh IPsec, or extranet VPN links by means of a few mouse clicks

How Progent's Cisco Certified Experts Can Help Your Business with Network Management Solutions
Progent's Cisco-Certified network management engineers can help you to use Cisco's management tools alongside an array of powerful third-party programs to develop a complete management toolkit to keep your network functioning smoothly, conserve valuable resources, protect your data, recover quickly from hardware breakdowns or deliberates attacks, and allow you to scale or repurpose system resources effectively and economically as your company evolves.

Progent can also show you how to use network management tools to monitor and categorize network data to enable traffic shaping, which permits you to set up Cisco routers to enforce different bandwidth restrictions on designated classes of activity according to the importance you assign. By buffering and sorting data packets that exceed your contracted volume, and by assigning priority to critical processes, traffic shaping can prevent ISP overage charges from spiraling out of control and/or eliminate lost productivity caused by indiscriminate policing of your network bandwidth restrictions during peak demand.

Progent's CISM, CISSP, and ISSAP security consultants can help you to develop a comprehensive security strategy that incorporates your network management processes, and Progent's remote and in person support experts and Cisco CCIE-certified consultants can utilize the latest network management tools to isolate and remediate trouble rapidly to keep your network running smoothly.
