Enterprise Network Monitoring

Definition - What does Enterprise Network Monitoring mean?

Enterprise network monitoring is the process of monitoring business networks.

There are tools available specifically for this purpose. In general, network monitoring tools allow system administrators to do more intensive analysis and maintenance of networks with less heavy labor or intrusive on-site work.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Network Monitoring

Enterprise network monitoring tools are made for the kinds of networks that businesses rely on to control valuable data sets related to operations. These tools look at various network metrics and present them in transparent ways for the purposes of network administration.

They may also look at system availability and the correct configuration of firewalls and other security equipment. Security and backup methods like failover can be built into system tools, and assessing backup and recovery may be a significant part of a monitoring tool. Another innovation in network monitoring is remote monitoring tools, which allow human administrators to do more monitoring from various off-site locations.
