What Are Advanced Monitoring Agents?

Monitoring agents are specialized software that help keep workstations, servers, and networks up-to-date via continuous, 24/7 scanning. They alert IT support staff to potential problems and help keep malicious software off the monitored systems. These agents help MSPs and technology professionals ensure safety and reliability while keeping track of networks.     

The advanced monitoring agent in SolarWinds RMM is designed to give you almost complete control when managing your customers’ IT infrastructure. SolarWinds® RMM, the remote monitoring and management platform from SolarWinds MSP, is built to help you streamline processes with efficient, cloud-based, automated maintenance.

How Your Clients Can Benefit from Network Monitoring Software

Advanced network monitoring software can help businesses stay safe and productive. Businesses need their networks for critical day-to-day operations. If the network has an outage or gets hit with a cyberattack, your clients may be unable to complete their work—or they could miss out on important customer communications. SolarWinds RMM offers network monitoring in addition to endpoint and server monitoring. You can monitor your customers’ networks from the same web-based dashboard as their servers and workstations instead of juggling multiple solutions. Integrated within SolarWinds RMM is NetPath™, a network monitoring feature that allows you to view slowdowns in traffic both inside and outside your managed networks. 

Get the tools you need to manage, secure, and improve all things IT—all within a single web-based dashboard.
