Cisco Network Management Solutions ExpertiseA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other suppliers highlights the value and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco qualified network management consultants are experienced at assisting businesses develop network management strategies utilizing on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and NetFlow protocols to build effective tools for tracking network bandwidth usage and latency, monitoring key router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, processes, and devices that use network resources.

Progent can help businesses to deploy a broad selection of open source and proprietary management utilities to maintain a Cisco network. Tools used by Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can allow organizations to be aware of current network usage and intelligently prepare for downstream traffic increases. Network management utilities can also be used to highlight inefficient or improper uses of network resources, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can eat up valuable or limited network resources. A carefully planned network management strategy can also assist companies to make intelligent choices on system upgrades after they recognize how much system bandwidth historically needed at specific times.

Having an efficient network management solution in place ahead of time is essential to avoid major problems that can result from Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and malicious viruses. These events can leave the network unstable and in the absence of proper tools it can be difficult, if not virtually impossible, to identify the source of the trouble.
