PRTG 7.0.9 makes network monitoring possible for a systems administrator or IT manager on the road who prefers to use their Apple iPhone as opposed to lugging around a heavier laptop.

Enterprise IT professionals have been grappling with how to tweak their IT infrastructure to assist and manage employees who use Apple iPhones. Now, thanks to Paessler AG, a world leader in network monitoring tools, the Apple iPhone is actually a tool for the enterprise IT professional to help them ensure the enterprise's network is available 24-7. Today, Paessler AG announced the availability of the latest version of Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, PRTG Network Monitor -- 7.0.9. The new solution continues to provide systems administrators and IT managers with an easy, cost effective way to ensure network availability -- via their Apple iPhone.

"Network bottlenecks and unexpected failures in leased lines, routers, firewalls etc... caused by new strands of malware, DoS attacks, or servers/PCs running amok threaten the availability of the network to enterprises, and require IT professionals within an enterprise to monitor their network 24-7. Those within the enterprise charged with monitoring the network 24-7 need to be able to do so from any geographic location," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Paessler AG. "PRTG 7.0.9 makes network monitoring possible for a systems administrator or IT manager on the road who prefers to use their Apple iPhone as opposed to lugging around a heavier laptop."

A systems administrator or IT manager can use their Apple iPhone and leverage PRTG Network Monitor 7.0.9 by simply pointing the safari browser of his/her iPhone to the URL of their PRTG-server and then log in with their access data. On their Apple iPhone display they can subsequently view the sensor tree with groups, devices, and sensors. Using the touch screen of their Apple iPhone, they can navigate to receive detailed data and graphs, and, if necessary, take action to rectify a problem or neutralize a threat to the network.

An Apple iPhone can be used securely to leverage PRTG 7.0.9, as Paessler employs SSL/HTTPS access and PRTG Network Monitor features an integrated rights-management.

PRTG Network Monitor enables availability and usage of monitoring via WMI, SNMP, NetFlow, Packet Sniffing and all other common protocols. Thus, the solution covers the entire scope of network monitoring and guarantees maximum transparency for networks of any kind and size. In addition, PRTG Network Monitor provides administrators with all required information for optimal maintenance and smooth operation of their networks based on a state-of-the-art and intuitive web user interface. In this way, PRTG provides for significant savings in cost and time by avoiding outages, optimizing networks in line with demand, and controlling SLAs (Service Level Agreements).
