An all-inclusive tool that eliminates the need to select modules

Bei PRTG sind immer alle Funktionen an Bord

PRTG comes with the whole kit and caboodle

PRTG is an all-in-one tool. It includes all the functions you’ll need for comprehensive network monitoring. And when it comes to costs, PRTG licenses are both fair and transparent. With ManageEngine OpManager, you’re stuck with the cumbersome task of selecting modules. And if you need an upgrade, you’ll have to pay for it. With PRTG, you simply choose the license that best suits the size of your network and the number of things you wish to monitor.

If you decide on OpManager, you’ll have to think about exactly which functions are worth the extra cost before you go through with the purchase.


Monitoring that doesn’t break the bank

Despite its comprehensive range of features, PRTG is extremely affordable. When you put together a software package with ManageEngine OpManager, the purchase price can quickly go through the roof. And this price will, of course, have to be approved beforehand by your higher-ups.

Many of our customers have enjoyed significant savings by switching from ManageEngine OpManager to PRTG.

You too are sure to find that PRTG quickly pays dividends. Over the long run, our network monitoring tool saves you a great deal of time and money. In fact, a PRTG license usually pays for itself in an average of only 3 and 1/2 months.

PRTG makes it easy to monitor distributed networks

As companies often operate from numerous locations, monitoring its networks can be something of a challenge. With most monitoring tools such as ManageEngine OpManager, several licenses and add-ons are required to perform this monitoring. With PRTG, the monitoring of distributed networks is easy thanks to remote probes.


Szenario 1: Überwachung mehrerer Standorte von der zentralen IT

Scenario 1: Monitoring several locations from one central IT environment

PRTG remote probes make it easy to monitor distributed networks.

Simply install the PRTG Core Server in your main network. Remote probes will gather your monitoring data and send this data back to the Core Server for analysis. These probes can be in the same network or in different locations. The only requirement is that they be able to communicate uninterruptedly with the Core Server via the Internet.

Szenario 2: Überwachung mehrerer Kunden als MSP

Scenario 2: Monitoring customers as an MSP

With a PRTG license, you can also offer monitoring services to your customers. PRTG lets you monitor the networks of several customers, and thereby provide maximum security at minimal cost.

A comprehensive role and rights management system allows you to decide which parts of the monitoring they can access.

PRTG is intuitive and user-friendly


As a sysadmin, you'll save the most time when your monitoring software is easy to configure and operate.

With PRTG, sensors and evaluation parameters can be added with just a few clicks. Thanks to automated searches and easy-to-understand setup instructions, PRTG is ready to use in no time at all. Graphs such as the “Sunburst View” let you determine the status of your network at a glance.

Not only do our customers find our tool to be extremely user-friendly and intuitive, but independent tests also demonstrate the outstanding usability of PRTG. Compared to other monitoring tools such as ManageEngine OpManager, PRTG always ranks as the most user-friendly software.
