“We needed a solution to monitor our network devices and servers since the SolarWinds Supply Chain Attack issue. After looking into a couple of options, we decided to move forward with WhatsUpGold for the ease of use and the ease of setup.”

Eric J. | IS Administrator

“I have been using WhatsUp Gold network monitoring for years. I was first introduced to the product in 2003. My company at the time was using Solarwinds which I found to be not very user friendly. So I did some research and found WhatsUp Gold. Out of the box it was easy to implement and provided much more clarity and features. It provides me with a proactive approach for when any monitored device hits a predetermined threshold. Absolutely love it.”

Admin, Medical Devices Company

“Overall we've had a great experience with WUG. During the Solarwinds hack we were looking for an emergency replacement for our monitoring platform. We were able to get a WUG server set up and going, monitoring all of our systems, within a week. Moving over to WUG has generally been a great experience, with little overhead managing the system. The price was right, as well.”

Education Management

“Easy, flexible and simple setup. Does everything a medium size company needs it to do, without being cost prohibitive. Solarwinds is to big and costly for a medium sized Company. Opmanager's Probe add more overhead.”
