Paessler AG: Provider of powerful, yet easy-to-use Network Monitoring Software

Network devices such as IT routers, switches and intrusion prevention tools like firewalls form the backbone of corporate networks, and are vital for the day-to-day operations of a business. Any failure in their functioning can bring havoc and result in productivity and revenue loss from business downtimes. Managing these devices together, however, is a daunting task and needs specialized software to detect and notify potential failures. The fact that network devices come from several different vendors—some of them being developed with proprietary technology—further exacerbates the situation and makes it hard to manage together effectively. To that end, network monitoring software largely reduces network outages and facilitates businesses to operate without any such unexpected downtimes. To provide enterprises with efficient network monitoring software, Dirk Paessler¬¬ established Paessler AG in 1997. His motive behind founding the company was to offer scalable solutions that take the worry out of network availability and performance issues and let organizations concentrate on their core business instead. Today, the company provides its award winning PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG), an easy-to-use, comprehensive and yet powerful network monitoring software, to countless organizations and has positioned itself as a leading vendor in the network monitoring space.

Headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany, Paessler constantly works on PRTG to improve its usability and add new features to help customers manage their networks better. Already in use at enterprises and organizations of all sizes and industries, PRTG enables IT teams to gain a clear, comprehensive and real-time view of the performance, traffic, status, and availability of the IT infrastructure. PRTG helps system administrators keep networks and applications up and running by ensuring peak performance at all times and at any given circumstance.
Andrew Timms, Sales Director for APAC at Paessler adds, “Our monitoring solution disburdens system administrators from most of the arduous, time-consuming and cumbersome daily tasks, and helps them make informed decisions in real-time.” Paessler partners with some of the leading technology vendors such as Amazon, Cisco and VMware to ensure the best performance, compatibility and reliability of its solutions across platforms. Such partnerships allow its customers to monitor several technology platforms with PRTG at no extra-cost or effort. With its integrated monitoring solutions for IT infrastructural needs, Paessler has gained worldwide visibility and accolades from several quarters. Its technical prowess is vindicated by the awards it has won to date, including ‘Software Vendor of the Year, CRN Awards 2015’, ‘Deloitte Technology Fast 50, 2014’, ‘MicroScope ACEs, 2014 as Software Technology of the Year’, and ‘Network Management Product of the Year’ and ‘Product of the Year’ at the Network Computing Awards 2014, among others.
