Small business owners can now take advantage of network monitoring at no cost with the PRTG Network Monitor 100 sensor license

Austin, Texas and Nuremberg, Germany - April 7, 2015 - Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, today announced that it is releasing the 100 sensor license of PRTG Network Monitor for free, giving home users, small business owners and startups the power to monitor their networks with a full version of the product at no cost.

Many IT administrators at small businesses and startup companies are struggling with the explosive growth of IT infrastructure. Smaller networks are not as vast as those in large enterprises, but they are every bit as complex, and are managed by much smaller IT staffs. With the advent of wearable devices, cloud services, and with more VMs than ever before, it is critical that IT administrators have visibility into their infrastructure. By offering PRTG 100 for free, Paessler is giving overtaxed IT staffs the ability to monitor their infrastructure in a simple and sophisticated way.

PRTG Network Monitor is full-featured at every license model, with no add-ons or modules needed. Paessler offers more than 200 sensor types - monitoring points used to track a specific URL, network traffic, a port of a switch, or the CPU load on a machine. Users will be able to take advantage of the full slate of PRTG's abilities and, with 100 sensors at their disposal, will be able to monitor a typical small business or startup deployment. Additionally, those who download the 100 sensor license will also get to test drive an unlimited version of PRTG on a trial basis for 30 days.

"When I was looking for a suitable solution for network monitoring for myself eighteen years ago, I could not find anything that was easy to operate and offered an extensive set of features," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Paessler. "As a consequence, we started developing PRTG, always putting an emphasis on user-friendliness. Every user should be able to use PRTG in no time at all. Today, I am convinced that our software can be a tremendous help for every company, regardless of its size or sector. Of course it is a big step for us to offer a license for free, but I believe it is a gain for both sides. Administrators all over the world profit from full functionality, professional monitoring and optimization potential, while we are able to extend our installation base."
