Unlike the time-consuming manual threshold approach used by most enterprises, NeuralStar enables network operators to rapidly isolate and troubleshoot performance bottlenecks and suspicious activity on the network. Using a wizard-driven interface, network managers can automatically create dynamic activity-baselines across the IT infrastructure. Dynamic thresholds can also be set above and below baseline values so that alerts are received if network traffic levels spike or drop dramatically, so performance and security issues can be rapidly detected and resolved before any impact occurs. With the new release, enterprise management capabilities have been enhanced to enable operators to quickly adapt to security threats and performance issues across distributed sites.

Network Management Megatrends 2012

Posted on - 0 comments

Recently, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) published a landmark study of the drivers, issues, and priorities for network managers including network management tools, technologies and practices.  We wanted to share some of these insights with you. 

Factors Affecting Priorities for Monitoring:
• Increasing use of packet-based monitoring
• Performance diagnosis in flux
• Virtual environment support still evolving
• Clouds have real and measurable impacts

The Top Three Business Priorities for Network Management Solutions:
• Low cost of maintenance
• Low cost of total ownership
• Flexible deployment plan

Key among these new requirements is the desire for tightly integrated multifunction tools over loosely integrated or best-of-breed approaches.

In acquiring and deploying network management products, it was found that:
• In organizations with 10,000 employees or more, 42% of employees prefer fully integrated multi-function platforms. 
• In organizations with 1,000 – 9,999 employees, 35% of employees prefer fully integrated multi-function platforms and
• In organizations with less than 1,000 employees, 37% of employees prefer fully integrated multi-function platforms.
Kratos offers a tightly integrated solution, NeuralStar, that delivers enterprise network management capabilities including NOC level visibility, management of multiple and geographically distributed networks and automatic failover and redundancy for continuous operations in an all-in-one solution that deploys rapidly for an accelerated ROI.
