Network Management Solutions Consulting and Support ServicesAn abundance of network management tools from Cisco and other suppliers underscores the importance and difficulty of maintaining networks. Progent's seasoned network management consultants are experienced at helping businesses design network management strategies based on Simple Network Management Protocol, Syslog, and NetFlow protocols to create effective tools for network utilization and network latency, viewing important router and switch operational characteristics, and recognizing traffic profiles, processes, and appliances utilizing network resources.

Progent can assist customers to deploy a broad selection of free and license-based management products to maintain a Cisco-powered environment. Utilities used by Progent's consultants include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager, Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Wireshark/Ethereal, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and NetMRI.

Network management tools can allow organizations to be aware of existing system usage and intelligently prepare for future capacity expansion. Network management tools can also be deployed to highlight poor or improper utilization of network services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer file exchange, etc. that can waste valuable or scarce network resources. A well crafted network management strategy can also enable businesses to arrive at informed choices on system enhancements after they recognize how much network bandwidth actually required at any one time.

Having an efficient network management platform in place in advance is vital to prevent severe disruptions that can be caused by Denial Of Service attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. Such events can render the network unusable and in the absence of proper utilities it can be time consuming, and sometimes practically impossible, to find the source of the trouble.
