More Transparency and Insight into the IT Infrastructure

PORTLAND, Ore. and FUERTH, Germany – Aug 21, 2007 – A properly working systems environment is indispensable for all enterprises. System outages - web shops, applications, or employees´ PCs for example - can have a hugely negative impact on business processes and working climate. And it is the IT department that becomes the focus of attention, getting all the criticism, yet its achievements are often not appreciated, because the staff don't understand what they do.

But a professionally implemented network monitoring system can serve as a strategically important tool giving every employee an understanding of how important it actually is to monitor and analyse IT processes. IPCheck Server Monitor from Paessler provides the necessary transparency and enables the IT people to provide information that everyone can easily understand and rely upon.

Often the IT department will only come into focus when there is a problem – and consequently are almost always associated with bad news. But IPCheck Server Monitor can help turn this negative into a positive by increasing the understanding of outages and disruptions and showing all staff how the network processes have been performing.

This is done in an easy-to-understand graph format, on an intranet detailing all network processes, including servers, printers, VPNs.

The intuitive IPCheck Server Monitor software includes a multitude of possibilities. It can display values, trends, and analyze on screen, thus quickly becoming an important component in the everyday life of the network administrator. It will also alert administrators about outages or delays in the network via flexibly deliverable messages (i.e. via mail, SMS, or ICQ).

Moreover, additional Web based demonstration material for employees can be provided based on scripts. The IT department determines what information will be publicly displayed, while remaining in control of all access rights and changes to the system. So, employees get real-time information on the availability and utilization of network components making delays and outages comprehensible.

An exemplary script is available under www.paessler.com in the „Paessler Knowledge Base“ section.

A trial version and freeware edition are available for download under www.paessler.com/ipcheck/download. The prices for the commercial versions start at €124,95 plus VAT. Ordered from www.paessler.com/order/ipcheck.
