Paessler Releases iPRTG for Mobile Network Monitoring via the Apple iPhone

Nuremberg, Germany (September 24, 2009) – Paessler announced today the launch of its iPhone application, iPRTG. Specially developed for network administrators who are already using, or plan to use, PRTG Network Monitor, it enables administrators to view the monitored environment and to actively manage the monitoring any time, from anywhere. All relevant data are acquired directly from the central PRTG server and are clearly displayed in a format specially developed for the iPhone, meaning network administrators do not need to be tied to their desks to manage such important processes. They can now take advantage of a higher degree of mobility.

“The iPhone has revolutionized mobile communications, and today’s network administrators are always on the go,” said said Dirk Paessler, CEO of Paessler AG. “iPRTG will allow them to stay informed about the health of the network, diagnose issues and take the appropriate action from anywhere in the world, improving efficiency and response time to network events.“

The application fulfils all requirements of a modern network monitoring solution. Even when traveling, iPRTG makes it possible to check the status of server availability and, if necessary, take prompt action to avoid the negative economic impact of system downtime. It also provides immediate access to data about bandwidth and network usage, enabling administrators to make changes on the basis of these data in order to rapidly improve the performance and efficiency of the network.

Paessler’s mobile solution is attractive for administrators who use PRTG Network Monitor to monitor bandwidth, availability and usage. The Paessler software continuously monitors the network and immediately reports any deviations from predefined monitoring parameters. iPRTG allows the iPhone to request all necessary monitoring data directly from the PRTG server. The touch-screen navigation of the iPhone grants immediate access to all required details. The intuitive operation makes it easy to make sensor adjustments, view messages, note analysis of alerts and charts and evaluate results. Administrators no longer have to struggle with cumbersome laptops.

“This new app makes PRTG Network Monitor infinitely portable, convenient and easy to use,” Paessler said. “Now you can have an entire network snapshot right in the palm of your hand. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that can save a tremendous amount of time and money, especially in small organizations with small IT staffs. And the best thing: iPRTG was developed by using PRTG’s open API, that has already been used by thousands of independent software developers worldwide.”
