The Network Monitoring Company
At Paessler AG, we offer more than just software. Our network monitoring solutions provide peace of mind, confidence and convenience at a price you can afford.
Paessler has been at the forefront of providing the industry's most powerful, affordable and easy-to-use network solutions since the dawn of the modern Internet. Our lightweight products make it easy and convenient to manage network availability, performance and usage without draining valuable system, personnel and financial resources. Simply put: they just work, so you don't have to worry.
Our Founding Mission
In 1997, Dirk Paessler was frustrated by the lack of effective, yet economical, server load and network monitoring software available on the market. So he set out to develop his own. The result is Paessler AG, founded with a mission to offer only the kind of software we would want for ourselves - scalable solutions with a small footprint that take the worry out of network availability and performance.
Designed to be "just right" for any size organization, Paessler products deliver only the best functionality of competing products, without all the fluff, at an excellent price. That is our commitment to you.
Our licensing model is "all in," meaning it's entirely free of add-ons. PRTG allows you to monitor your network without worrying about paying extra money for additional features. All licenses include all monitoring features and functionalities, including Flow monitoring, as well as an unlimited number of remote probes. This eliminates additional costs, as well as the complex installation or configuration of add-ons.
To ensure that our products will integrate smoothly and seamlessly with your existing infrastructure, even in virtual environments, Paessler partners with leading technology providers and is recognized, for example, as a member of the Cisco Developer Network and a VMware Technology Alliance Partner.
