SNMP Research Makes New Additions to EnterPol
Knoxville, TN, April 8, 2002 - SNMP Research, Inc. announced today that it has enhanced its SecureIntelligence management suite, EnterPol, to include two powerful new applications-the SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard and CIAgent Monitor.
The SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard makes configuration of SNMPv3-based agents and managers quick and easy. The Wizard guides the user through all the steps for configuration of SNMPv3 security including: establishment of a secure connection for initial configuration, addition of new users, configuration of pass-phrases, set-up of fine-grained access control policies, and definition of notification destinations (SNMP-based managers). The Wizard is also an excellent tool for gaining a basic understanding of how the SNMPv3 administrative model works.
The recent promotion of SNMPv3 to "full standard" by the IETF reinforces its established robustness and interoperability. SNMPv3 provides full security and a sophisticated administrative framework for manager-to-agent communications. It is a key enabling technology for the remote management and configuration requirements of today's complex distributed IT environments.
CIAgent Monitor displays performance, availability, and configuration information for servers and networking equipment with next-generation SNMP agents, including the company's own CIAgent. CIAgent Monitor logically organizes management information in both summary and detailed views of network, system, application, process, and service performance. Information is clearly labeled and presented in tables, graphs, meters, and status lights. All views are modeled using XML, which provides a powerful architecture for extending and modifying views.
A unique feature is the integration with SNMP Research's EMANATE® agent development tools. This integration allows additional management views of non-standard management objects, which have been implemented by an enterprise or service provider, to be automatically generated. For example, an enterprise may encapsulate their management tools developed for "home-grown" applications as an elegant extension of CIAgent. These "home-grown" applications can now be managed remotely through secure and standards-based SNMPv3, and the automatic view-generation facility of CIAgent Monitor will create graphical views of the performance and health of these applications.
Both of these solutions are included as components of SNMP Research's EnterPol suite. The company has created new packaging options for EnterPol to provide better integration for customers with existing management ecosystems.
