In a simple word, a system of special hardware and software that can monitor the activities of a computer network is called a network monitoring system.The network monitoring system continuously monitor's a computer network to give the efficient service of it and check for slow or failing components. When any issues are detected by a network monitoring system, instantly it will send a notification alert to the system administrator. So that the administrator can take action to solve the issues before that become a major problem.
Almost all companies are computer-based. The computers with their software and hardware work for you. Other components like servers, printers, terminals make the network more complex. It is difficult to find out what the network does, how accurately and is there any problem in the network. Companies often hire an administrator or sometimes a team to monitor the network. But this huge money spending is valueless if vulnerabilities still occur in spite of taking all those preventative steps. This is evident in many companies worldwide.Read more
In many organizations, we found that negligence in maintaining the rules and regulations by the users, makes the network more vulnerable. Advance hackers and upgraded viruses can easily access to the network then. Slowing down or completely shutting down can happen in the network because of inappropriate traffic. As technical restrictions can not be imposed on network traffic, network abuse is for sure inevitable. Both banning traffic and restricting by type is also not possible for many other companies. So, this is the condition of the companies without a n Read more
For these above problems, an organization has to use a network monitoring system. Only the best solution can fight problems effectively. Before installing a monitoring system it's important to know what exactly we want to monitor if we want to get the best out of our tool. There are some important key performance indicator (KPI) to monitor-
Network monitoring software is a system administration tool, it’s not a security tool. The aim of intrusion prevent tool is to enhance system security, while network monitoring tool addresses network management and administration.
