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.

Used in combination with the top outside vendor products, Cisco's network management software can enhance the business value of network infrastructures for companies of any size by dealing with important areas such as resource utilization, throughput, resilience, protection, repair, and scalability. Cisco's most popular network management tools include:

The application offers a unified system view and allows IT administrators to employ its functions across switches, routers, and WAPs.

Security Manager is a highly functional but easy-to-use application for managing all facets of device set up and policies for PIX and ASA firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and Intrusion Prevention Systems. Security Manager efficiently handles even small environments consisting of no more than than ten appliances, but also expands to manage enterprise systems with thousands of devices. Expansion is achieved via intelligent policy-based control procedures that can simplify administration. Key features of Security Manager include:

  • Comprehensive video help for the new operator to accelerate learning time
  • Centrally specify which policies are common and inherited by additional appliances to make sure company-wide policies are configured consistently, while offering optional versatility to customize policies at the individual appliance level
  • Ability to create a common rule database for all Cisco platforms with smart evaluation of firewall policies to detect conflicts in the rule table
  • Easily configure site-to-site, hub-spoke, full-mesh IPsec, or extranet Virtual Private Network interfaces with a few mouse clicks
  • Compatibility with Cisco ACS for granular role based access management to devices and management services
  • Integration with Cisco security MARS to compare events with related firewall rules to help with faster decision making and increased system up time
