G2 software reviews are not your traditional take on a product, where they put it in a lab or, more likely, someone’s home office and see how it goes. No, G2 reviews are driven by actual users who have put the tool through its paces and generally rely on it every day.

That’s why being chosen as a leader in the G2 Grid® Report for Network Monitoring Tools report is such an honor – because G2 didn’t choose WhatsUp Gold, you did! Well, the 130 Progress WhatsUp Gold customers are the ones that actually made it happen.

There is also some relation to data center networking software. These tools provide similar network monitoring capabilities designed specifically for data centers and their connected IT ecosystem,” the company explained.

Why do you need network monitoring? Lots of reasons. “Network monitoring software tracks the overall performance of a computer network. These solutions detect problems in a network by comparing live performance against an expected performance baseline. They also measure response time, availability, consistency, reliability, and the overall traffic of a network, based on real-time and historical performance data,” G2 argued. “IT teams can benefit greatly from either proprietary or free network monitoring software.”

WhatsUp Gold Gets High IT Infrastructure Marks

G2 also tracks the highest quality and most usable tools in the world of IT infrastructure. WhatsUp Gold made the enterprise monitoring grade as one of the Best IT Infrastructure Products for 2024 | G2 for Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) software.

“Network traffic analysis (NTA) software monitors network traffic and provides expanded visibility into network activity and communications. These tools are used to document and analyze network resource utilization and performance, constantly tracking granular details related to network communications. NTA tools are typically automated and provide insights into who is using a network, how they’re accessing it, where they’re located, and what they’re doing within the network,” G2 explained. “Businesses use NTA tools to identify suspicious traffic-related activity and pinpoint network performance issues such as slow download speeds or throughput. These tools are typically administered by a company’s IT department and used to bolster network security efforts and optimize network performance. Many NTA solutions provide real-time analysis to alert IT administrators of abnormal activity or performance, assisting them in remediating threats and reducing network failure.”
