Network management platforms help organizations to deploy network infrastructure effectively, look up client information quickly, monitor system operation, debug issues, protect against and react to threats, and maximize performance. Network management tools can spot inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services like streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can waste bandwidth, lower worker productivity or allow data leakage. A prudently crafted network management environment can also assist companies to make informed network enhancement decisions by showing tendencies in network demand for various times or jos.

Traditional Network Management Tools from Cisco and Others
Network Management Solutions Professional HelpA wealth of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the importance and difficulty of maintaining networks. Progent's seasoned network management engineers are expert at helping businesses develop network management strategies based on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and NetFlow protocols to create effective tools for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, monitoring key router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic patterns, applications, and devices that use available resources.

Progent can assist customers to utilize a rich selection of open source and license-based monitoring and management solutions to manage a Cisco-powered environment. Utilities used by Progent's engineers include Cacti, Nagios, Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and NetMRI.

Network management tools can help organizations to be aware of current network utilization and intelligently plan for downstream traffic increases. Management utilities can also be used to detect poor or improper utilization of system resources, for example streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can use up expensive or limited network resources. A well planned network management solution can also assist organizations to arrive at informed decisions on network upgrades after they recognize the amount of system bandwidth really needed at specific times.

Having an efficient network management system in place ahead of time is vital to prevent major disruptions that can be due to Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses. These events can render the network unusable and without appropriate utilities it can be time consuming, and sometimes practically impossible, to identify the location of the problem.
