Network Management Solutions Consulting FirmAn abundance of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the importance and difficulty of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's Cisco-certified network management engineers are experienced at assisting businesses design management strategies utilizing on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), SYSLOG services, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build effective tools for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, viewing important router and switch operational characteristics, and identifying traffic profiles, applications, and appliances that use network services.

Progent can help customers to deploy a rich selection of free and proprietary monitoring and management utilities to manage a Cisco network. Utilities familiar to Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and NetMRI.

Network management tools can help organizations to understand existing system usage and intelligently plan for future traffic expansion. Network management utilities can also be deployed to detect inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can waste valuable and scarce network bandwidth. An efficiently crafted network management solution can also assist organizations to make intelligent decisions on system enhancements after they recognize how much system resources historically required at various times.

Putting an effective network management system in operation beforehand is critical to prevent major disruptions that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses. These assaults can leave the network unusable and without appropriate tools it can be difficult, if not practically impossible, to find the source of the problem.
