“Relatively easy to implement, as straight forward as you can get with this type of adventure, full feature set. I've used Solarwinds and others in the past WUG is king”

Matthew C. | Sr. Network Admin,
Government Agency

“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

“We switched to WUG from OPManager, brought network monitoring back in house. This saved the company $33K a year. I had previously used WUG at a different company. When I mentioned the potential cost saving the CIO (Big fan of Solarwinds) thought I might be biased, so he gave the project to the other engineer. Luckily he came up with the same results. I was able to display the same information (and more) on the big screen with WUG vs Solarwinds, so the CIO agreed to switch.”
