All-in-one monitoring –

Monitor the performance of your network and prevent crashes
Setup is quick and straightforward, without the need for dedicated hardware
What is Monitoring as a Service (MaaS)?
Monitoring as a Service (MaaS)
Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) lets you implement a monitoring application online. We host the monitoring software for you, which means you won’t have to install it on the computers in your network. Another advantage: you no longer have to bother with maintenance and updates.
Monitoring as a Service is also used in the context of services that MSPs (Managed Service Providers) offer. Read more about PRTG for MSPs here.
Tailor-made packages available
As with Software as a Service (SaaS), the only thing you’ll need is an Internet connection, which means you can free up resources (such as servers) that were once used to run your monitoring software. Our packages can be customized and renewed on a monthly or annual basis, allowing you to enjoy the utmost in flexibility, and to only pay for that which you really require.
Enjoy the full range of PRTG features – and let us take care of the hosting
Comprehensive monitoring tool
PRTG is a comprehensive monitoring tool for your entire IT infrastructure. It lets you keep a constant eye on your network, systems, and applications. Thanks to its intuitive feel and easy-to-read dashboards, PRTG always receives top scores by customers and independent tests. PRTG Hosted Monitor lets you get started with network monitoring at once – without having to set up a server or endure lengthy configuration processes.
“Businesses that want to monitor everything on their network without having to worry about extra costs or unsupported devices will find Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor a fine choice. It dishes out sensors a bit more liberally than you’ll probably want, but these can be easily moved to where they’re needed, resulting in a monitoring solution that’s not only highly capable but good value.”
With PRTG Hosted Monitor, you can, of course, take advantage of the full range of preconfigured PRTG sensors. This makes it easy to monitor all the main aspects of your network, such as hardware, software, traffic, and performance. PRTG’s Auto Discovery feature automatically detects network devices and integrates them into your monitoring. As a result, you can forgo having to add individual checkpoints manually.
What is a sensor?
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
PRTG presents all network monitoring information on easy-to-read dashboards. Feel free to customize these dashboards to meet your own specific needs. By doing so, you'll keep a constant eye on all the key values of your network, and ensure that everything is running smoothly.
Finally, PRTG’s Map Editor lets you create network charts in a matter of seconds.
Customizable notification system
When it comes to your network, you need to be updated at once – especially if your website is down, your virtual machines are overloaded, or the network’s hard drives are nearing full capacity. PRTG constantly monitors your entire network and notifies you as soon as any of your predefined threshold values are exceeded. You get to choose how you’d like to be alerted, whether it be by email, SMS, or push notification.

Whether you use Windows, Linux, or Unix, or a desktop or laptop, PRTG Hosted Monitor is independent of all platforms and end devices.
A lighter workload
With PRTG Hosted Monitor, we'll take care of many of the administrative tasks involved with your monitoring. You will no longer have to worry about installing updates, for example. We always keep PRTG up to date, so you can benefit from the latest versions of all its functions. You won’t need a core server to monitor your network with PRTG Hosted Monitor. Overloaded core servers and poor performance are therefore things of the past.
PRTG is an all-in-one network monitoring tool. It not only comes with preconfigured sensors for all the devices and applications in your network, but it can also be customized to meet any particular needs. What’s more, additional user-defined sensors can be set up and deployed along with the preconfigured ones. Finally, PRTG lets you define the threshold values which, if reached, will trigger an alarm.
All the data that you save in PRTG is protected and secure. PRTG uses premium end-to-end encryption processes to ensure your network data does not wind up in the wrong hands. Your Monitoring as a Service runs on reliable, dedicated, and high-performance Amazon servers. We regularly perform real-time backups, so you can enjoy peace of mind.

Automatic network discovery
PRTG can scan network segments by pinging a selected range of IP addresses. These scans allow PRTG to automatically detect devices and systems and create sensors based on predefined device templates. You can therefore do away with tedious configurations and get started with hosted monitoring at once.
The PRTG Maps feature lets you create custom websites with your current monitoring data. You can also make maps available to the public. Create an overview of your network – in just the way you want it!
PRTG notifies you whenever it discovers warning messages or unusual performance indicators in your network. Our free apps for Android, iOS, and Windows telephones use push technology to send these notifications directly to your smartphone. Setting up your preferences (SMS, email, etc.) for alerts is both quick and easy. And thanks to our powerful API, you can even write your own notification scripts!
“Hey Dirk, what do you think about network monitoring?”
“Without network monitoring, it can easily take several hours to locate a network error, such as identifying a router which isn't working properly. Costs can quickly pile up due to unused man days. With a monitoring service, the amount of downtime can be minimized and in many cases even proactively eliminated. With our PRTG monitoring tool, we hope to simplify the job of administrators so they can go about their work efficiently and with less stress.”
