Proteans, an outsourcing company focusing on software product development and business application development, required an easy-to-use tool capable of monitoring network devices and PCs across multiple locations. Proteans evaluated network monitoring solutions considering the ease of use and configuration, detection of devices, and reporting, and ultimately chose WhatsUp Gold. With WhatsUp Gold integrated into their network management strategy, they were better able to identify issues quickly, save time, and achieve financial savings.

“WhatsUp Gold gives us the ability to realize the benefits of troubleshooting issues quickly,” states IT Manager Deepu Vijayanath.
