Network management tools assist organizations to deploy network infrastructure efficiently, access client details rapidly, track network health, troubleshoot problems, defend against and react to cyber attacks, and optimize responsiveness. Network management systems can help detect inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services such as streaming media or peer-to-peer file sharing that can waste bandwidth, reduce employee output or allow data leaks. A prudently planned network management environment can also assist companies to make informed network enhancement decisions by exposing tendencies in network usage for various periods or jos.

Progent's Catalyst WiFi access point experts, Meraki WiFi AP consulting experts, Catalyst switches consulting experts, and Cisco Meraki switches consulting experts can help you to design, implement and optimize an up-to-date environment for network infrastructure management.

Traditional Network Management Platforms from Cisco and Others
Cisco Network Management Solutions Consulting FirmA wealth of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the value and difficulty of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's Cisco qualified network management engineers are expert at assisting companies design management strategies utilizing on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and Cisco NetFlow to create effective tools for understanding network bandwidth usage and latency, viewing key router and switch operational characteristics, and identifying traffic patterns, applications, and devices that use available resources.

Progent can help businesses to utilize a rich range of open source and license-based management products to manage a Cisco-powered environment. Utilities familiar to Progent's consultants include Cacti, Nagios, Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Monitor Manager, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, Solarwinds Orion, and NetMRI.

Network management tools can enable organizations to understand current system utilization and effectively prepare for downstream traffic expansion. Management utilities can also be deployed to identify inefficient or improper uses of system services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can waste expensive or limited network resources. A well designed network management plan can also help businesses to make intelligent decisions on WAN and LAN enhancements once they understand the amount of network bandwidth really required at specific times.

Putting an efficient network management system in operation in advance is critical to avoid severe problems that can follow Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. Such assaults can leave the network unstable and without proper utilities it can be difficult, if not virtually impossible, to identify the location of the trouble.

Cisco Security Manager is a feature-rich but easy-to-use application for centrally provisioning all facets of device configuration and security policies for PIX and ASA firewalls, virtual private networks, and IPS. The solution effectively manages even small environments with fewer than ten appliances, but also expands to control large-scale systems with thousands of devices.

  • Quickly set up site-to-site, hub-and-spoke, full mesh, or extranet Virtual Private Network links with a VPN wizard
  • Integration with Cisco Access Control Server (ACS) for granular role based access management to appliances and management services
  • Operation with Cisco security MARS to correlate events against related security appliance rules to enable quicker management decisions and enhanced network up time
