Network Management Solutions Consulting FirmA wealth of network management products from Cisco and other suppliers underscores the value and difficulty of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's Cisco qualified network management consultants are expert at helping companies develop management strategies utilizing on SNMP, Syslog, and Cisco NetFlow to build effective mechanisms for understanding network utilization and network latency, viewing key router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic profiles, applications, and devices utilizing network services.

Progent can assist businesses to utilize a broad range of free and proprietary monitoring and management tools to maintain Cisco infrastructure. Utilities familiar to Progent's engineers include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Wireshark/Ethereal, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can help organizations to understand current network utilization and intelligently plan for future capacity increases. Network management tools can also be used to highlight poor or inappropriate utilization of network services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can use up expensive and scarce network resources. An efficiently planned network management plan can also aid organizations to arrive at informed choices on system improvements once they appreciate how much system resources historically required at any one time.

Putting an effective network management system in operation beforehand is vital to prevent severe disruptions that can be caused by Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. These assaults can render the network unusable and without appropriate utilities it can be difficult, and in some cases practically impossible, to identify the source of the trouble.
