Comodo is a major player in connection security services. The company has created a free remote monitoring and management platform, called Comodo One. This is a “Freemium” tool because the basic system is free to use, but you have to pay for extra features, such as the connection security features. As RMM is all about remote access over the public medium of the internet, it is likely that any company would ever use this service without security. So, in a roundabout way, you end up paying for Comodo One. Given that Comodo has an excellent reputation for its cybersecurity products, the protection in Comodo One is worth paying for.

Monitor device fault, availability, and performance
SolarWinds® Network Performance Monitor (NPM) uses SNMP monitoring to poll the management information bases (MIBs) on your devices to obtain critical performance metrics. With the SNMP monitoring tools in NPM, you can monitor network fault, availability, and performance of all compatible devices with the ability to create a customer monitor to poll an object identifier (OID) for devices not supported out-of-the-box.
NPM is designed to simplify the detection, diagnosis, and resolution of network issues before outages occur by using an enhanced display of all network device information in fully customizable dashboards and charts. With network management software, you can help ensure the availability of your network and analyze its performance to deliver business-critical applications and services to your end-users.
As an MSP owner, you don’t have a ton of time to spend sifting through reports and data. However, you do need to stay informed of the health of your operation if you want to stay successful. SolarWinds® MSP Manager™ provides reports and dashboards that make it easy to get a complete picture of your business without having to decipher complex graphs or spreadsheets.
