Solutions for monitoring multiple distributed infrastructures

Highest security with remote-probe-based monitoring


Add remote probes to your monitoring setup via an easy-to-use installation wizard. Each remote probe independently monitors the network that it is installed in. This can be, for example, a branch office, a company location abroad, or services in your LAN that are behind a firewall.

The probes run in the background. They collect monitoring data autonomously and send the data via an SSL/TLS-secured connection to the PRTG core server. This way, you can extend your monitoring without exposing your remote infrastructures to the outside world – for maximum security.

The core installation of PRTG acts as the central monitoring hub that brings all data together in unified dashboards.

Monitoring-as-a-Service for multiple customers made easy


The remote probe feature in PRTG allows Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to easily offer Monitoring-as-a Service (MaaS) to their customers.

As an MSP, you own and manage the central PRTG installation and set up remote probes in each customer’s infrastructure. If a customer has several subnetworks, one remote probe is installed in each network.

The probes collect the data directly on site and send them to your central PRTG installation. Here, you can analyze and visualize monitoring data, manage the alerting and notification system, and create customized monitoring reports for each client.
