  • DeviceExpert adds CMDB integration for holistic, completely consolidated NCCM
  • Password Manager Pro records privileged sessions to protect against insider threats

Interop - NEW YORK and PLEASANTON, Calif. - October 1, 2012 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced key enhancements to its flagship network monitoring software (NMS), OpManager, as well as to its network configuration and change management (NCCM) solution, DeviceExpert, and enterprise password management software, Password Manager Pro. The company will showcase the upgrades along with the rest of its integrated IT management portfolio in booth #431 at Interop New York, being held October 1-5, 2012, at Javits Center in New York City.

Modern enterprises depend on network availability for business continuity. Even a few minutes of network downtime can have a ripple effect on revenue streams as critical business services get affected. As a result, IT organizations must monitor the performance of IT infrastructure in real time and troubleshoot any network problems quickly and precisely to optimize network uptime and business operations. These demands are driving the evolution of IT management solutions that fuse network monitoring and NCCM in a way that supports automation in conjunction with alerts, events and workflows.

"IT organizations, especially those in big enterprises, want to monitor the performance of their IT infrastructure every second as downtime costs can exceed $1 million in fields like manufacturing," said Raj Sabhlok, president of ManageEngine. "Administrators running networks with enterprise-grade SLAs need real-time device details and workflow-driven automation capabilities. In addition, with cyber-threats looming large, it has become absolutely essential to track what users are doing with their privileged access. OpManager, DeviceExpert and Password Manger Pro have been enhanced with these industry requirements in mind."

ManageEngine Highlights at Interop New York

At Interop New York, ManageEngine will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its network monitoring, NCCM and password management solutions, including:

  • Real-time performance monitoring (beta) in OpManager – OpManager now includes an agent that monitors Windows services, processes and event logs of mission-critical applications such as Exchange, SQL and IIS, in real time. In turn, any fault or performance issue immediately raises an alarm in OpManager to help identify IT issues the moment they arise and troubleshoot as soon as possible. OpManager is the first enterprise network monitoring product outside of HP, IBM and CA software to offer per-second monitoring. Agents for Linux and Mac will be added later.
  • Workflow-driven network automation (beta) in OpManager – The OpManager NCM plug-in now communicates with the OpManager workflow engine to automate NCCM actions. When an OpManager alarm is raised, the NCM plug-in enables OpManager to automatically perform tasks such as manage inventory, backup device configurations, and more. The workflow automation for NCCM significantly accelerates remediation and brings affordable network automation to enterprises.
  • Consolidated NCCM in DeviceExpert – New REST APIs enable third-party software to directly integrate with DeviceExpert and add, access and extract data. Moreover, the APIs facilitate DeviceExpert integration with an enterprise Configuration Management Database (CMDB), so users can leverage network monitoring, configuration management, and change control in complete alignment with the enterprise CMDB, keeping it up to date with respect to device configurations.
  • Privileged session recording in Password Manager Pro (beta) – Privileged sessions launched from Password Manager Pro can now be video recorded, archived and played back to support forensic audits. By monitoring all actions performed by privileged accounts during privileged sessions, enterprises can counter threats to information security that arise from outside as well as inside the corporate firewall.
