6 FREE super cool tools to help you tame your network

By Mark Pinskey

Sr. Product Marketing Manager – Automated Network Management

 

When you think about network management and network troubleshooting, what do you think of? Does the thought conjure images of superheroes, magicians or construction workers? The one thing these miracle workers all have in common is their use of tools to get the job done. Their tools make them stronger and give them the ability to do their jobs quickly while drastically reducing their mean time to repair. (Think of all of Batman’s awesome tools and gadgets for a moment, ooo the batmobile, what I would do to take it around the block!)

 

Today we are excited to provide your network management team with the tools they need to lighten their load and do their jobs better. And the best part—they are free. Our new network utilities and network administration tools help you manage many aspects of today’s modern networks. Now you have the ability to do a variety of useful network tasks including everything from “pinging” your network devices for health and availability to determining who is using the most network bandwidth.
