Paessler AG, a network monitoring solutions specialist, has launched its new PRTG Network Monitor v9 featuring new capabilities and functional enhancements designed to make network monitoring on virtually any scale easier, more efficient and more flexible.

"We have always been focused on continuous improvement to better meet the needs of our customers, and this latest release represents a quantum leap in ease of use and efficiency," said Paessler CEO Dirk Paessler. "We're confident you won't find this level of enterprise-grade functionality at this price point from any other monitoring solution provider."

This latest release, PRTG v9, adds a number of usability and efficiency improvements to streamline network monitoring tasks and save time and money for IT departments and network admins-all at the same price as the previous version 8.

Paessler's exclusive all-in, no add-on license includes the following new features:

* A completely redesigned, interactive web interface featuring customizable tree view display and individual libraries for improved at-a-glance monitoring and drag-and-drop ease for moving and cloning sensors;

* A new Enterprise Console designed specifically for larger installations to monitor multiple PRTG installations, ideal for MSPs or geographically dispersed operations.

* Simplified user management with Active Directory integration.

* Support for IPv6 across all applicable sensor types, including Packet Sniffer, and the ability to use auto-discovery in IPv6 networks.

* New wizard for manually adding sensors as well as dedicated hardware sensors for selected vendors, such as Dell, HP, APC.

* Automatic download of PRTG updates to ensure the admin can always install the latest release with two mouse clicks.

In addition, many new sensor types expand PRTG v9's capabilities, for example, the WMI Security Center, Registry, and refurbished Sensor Factory sensor types. A new QoS Round Trip Sensor gives users the ability to test the reliability of UDP communication over a network connection in both directions, making sure the network is ready for VoIP, Skype, YouTube, video conferencing, etc.
