What is network monitoring?
The use of automated systems to track network components’ performance is called network monitoring. The systems watch each network component and monitor its performance. If the component appears to be slowing down or failing, the monitoring system will diagnose the problem and send a notification to the network administrator. The monitoring system also tracks performance and sends reports to the administrator.
Network monitoring systems are extremely important to businesses that rely on networks and online customer and internal interaction. The more complex the network, the more important it is to have network monitoring systems in place. As far as cost is concerned, these systems pay for themselves very quickly.
Why do I need network monitoring?
They say that time is money. Of course, the opposite is true as well — downtime is money lost. Your business absolutely cannot afford downtime. Every time your network fails, you’re losing conversions. A good network monitoring system is critical in keeping downtime to a minimum.
But downtime is just the tip of the iceberg. Inefficiency also hurts your business. System vulnerabilities cause your components to slow and fail. Employee inefficiency also costs money, and it’s entirely unnecessary.
What will a good network monitoring system do for my business?
Wasatch I.T. keeps a close eye on your network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It watches for system vulnerabilities and components that are failing or responding more slowly than usual, then it diagnoses the problem and alerts a system administrator. In most cases, it does all of this before any human could even have detected that there was a problem, and long before there’s an actual system crash.
Wasatch I.T. utilizes many tools to help you run your business more efficiently. Our systems send you reports with just a click. These reports not only track the system’s efficiency, they can also tell you if your employees are abusing company time or hardware. We can even help you block the use of certain unauthorized devices and tell you if someone attempts to circumvent the block.
