ManageEngine Highlights at Cisco Live Milan 2014

At Cisco Live Milan, ManageEngine experts will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate the latest enhancements to its IT management portfolio, including:

NetFlow Analyzer – With the addition of Cisco AVC monitoring, NetFlow Analyzer now supports all major monitoring technologies from Cisco including NBAR, CBQoS, IP SLA, WAAS and Medianet. AVC monitoring lets IT teams segment, identify, monitor and manage over 1,000 applications with the help of NBAR2. In turn, AVC monitoring helps improve QoS monitoring and application response times. NetFlow Analyzer is IVT-tested and certified as ‘Cisco Compatible’ in various key areas.

OpManager – The new iPad app for OpManager lets admins view the availability and performance data of Cisco devices. It lists the alarms that are raised and lets the admin acknowledge, add notes, clear and delete them. The app includes various troubleshooting options such as ping, trace root and IT workflow automation. Admins can also use the app to create custom dashboards and widgets.

DeviceExpert – With SIEM integration, DeviceExpert can now send Syslog messages to SIEM tools upon detecting a configuration change. In turn, the SIEM tools can analyze those events, correlate them with other network events, and provide insights on overall network activity. The latest release of DeviceExpert also gains session recording of Telnet and SSH connections launched to devices from the DeviceExpert GUI. Session recording caters to the audit and compliance requirements of organizations that mandate proactive monitoring of activities. The recorded sessions can also be archived and played back to support forensic audits. DeviceExpert also offers REST APIs to enable any third-party application or software to integrate with DeviceExpert directly and add, access and extract data.

ManageEngine Launches PitStop Online IT Community Portal

PLEASANTON, CALIF. — ManageEngine launched PitStop today, the user community for all IT professionals. Beyond ManageEngine product support, PitStop offers a vendor-neutral venue for IT admins, managers, directors and other IT pros to discuss IT management issues and ideas that are germane to the entire IT community. The PitStop community can be found online at http://pitstop.manageengine.com/, and the PitStop launch video can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTcPystFLUM.

PitStop sets itself apart from other IT communities by providing a cascading, Facebook-like wall for users to share and discuss topics and trends with the PitStop community at large. Users can also tailor PitStop to their individual interests by subscribing to specific groups and pages, enabling them to virtually collaborate, share and engage with colleagues in their domain. To keep PitStop users engaged while on the move, mobile apps for iOS and Android are available at http://ow.ly/sMpob and http://ow.ly/sK1Mk, respectively.

“IT teams drive business success, but IT pros need to refuel every now and then,” said Vidya Vasu, head of the ManageEngine community. “PitStop gives them a place to hang out and exchange ideas, tools and tweaks with peers. This type of virtual collaboration and engagement is tremendously valuable inside ManageEngine, and we want to make that value available to everybody in IT, regardless of which vendors’ tools are used.”

IT Pros Take a PitStop

PitStop is a vendor-neutral platform for users to showcase success stories and interesting IT project implementations, discuss IT pitfalls, laugh at IT bloopers and generally liven things up. PitStop will not replace the existing forums where users discuss product-specific queries. Rather, it serves as an exclusive channel where users can discuss subjects that touch their everyday lives as IT pros. The ability to subscribe to one or more user groups lets users interact with other users who share similar interests.

For ManageEngine users, PitStop serves as an IT hub where they can access other technical resources shared by product specialists and the user community in general. It includes resources such as monitoring templates, custom scripts, an MIB repository, configuration tweaks, best practices and more. The product forums let users continue to seek clarifications or solutions to product-specific queries. The blogs feature articles and updates by ManageEngine analysts and those in the industry.

“With over 30 different IT solutions and over 50 free tools and mobile apps, ManageEngine is seeing year-on-year growth rate of over 35 percent in the number of its users,” said Vasu. “A lot of that growth is coming from our free tools and solutions, and PitStop complements that trend. Now, ManageEngine users and their peers have a place where they can bring IT to the table, find solutions, follow trends and talk shop.”
