To keep your network up to date and ensure business continuity, Advance Technology Services recommends you implement network monitoring software. This type of software is designed to check your network for problems that cause data transfer delays or component failures. By staying on top of issues as they occur, you can avoid outages and downtime which cost your business time and money. You will receive real-time notifications so you can mitigate problems before they become bigger ones.
There are several different types of network monitoring:
- Availability: Availability monitoring tests the uptime of servers, apps, and other infrastructure to alert of possible problems.
- Configuration: Check up on files and storage on various networks and locations.
