With all the cybersecurity nightmare stories constantly in the headlines, it’s hard to feel safe these days. And no one likes feeling unsafe. Whether it’s in your home, on the street or at work, feeling secure is essential to peace of mind. Without the right expert keeping an eye on your IT infrastructure, your organization is vulnerable to cyberattacks and is exposed to the ongoing risk of outages. When infrastructure is offline, staff can’t work and your data is defenseless.
When it comes to network security, there’s no room for error. That’s why real-time remote network monitoring with EIS is such an important tool for keeping organizations safe.
What is Remote Network Monitoring?
Network monitoring is critical for organizations and can help ensure security and stop breaches before they happen. When it comes to network monitoring, there are two main approaches: local and remote.
With local monitoring, a dedicated server is set up on-site to monitor the network. This server is usually connected to a centralized management system which gives administrators the ability to keep an eye on the network from a central location.
Remote network monitoring, on the other hand, uses a single central server to collect data from all computers in a network.

Benefits of Remote Network Monitoring
There are several benefits to remote network monitoring versus local network monitoring.
Remote Network Monitoring is Cost-Effective
While local network monitoring can be effective, it can also be expensive to install and manage, particularly with large networks. With remote network monitoring, on the other hand, all of the monitoring is done off-site, typically by a managed service provider (MSP) which results in significant cost-savings for organizations. By monitoring the network remotely, organizations can avoid the costly process of dispatching technicians to on-site locations for emergency repairs, while also freeing up their own staff to focus on other tasks.
Remote Network Monitoring Minimizes Downtime
By constantly monitoring your network for potential threats, real-time remote network monitoring can help you identify and fix problems before they cause major damage. Your IT provider has 24/7 access to your network so you don’t miss a beat or suffer from productivity-killing (and oh, so costly) downtime.
Remote Network Monitoring Increases Security
Network security breaches are becoming more and more common. One way to help mitigate the risk of a breach is to implement remote network monitoring. By continuously monitoring the network for suspicious activity, organizations can quickly detect and respond to potential threats. Additionally, remote network monitoring can provide valuable insights into network usage patterns, identifying potential weak points.
Remote Network Monitoring is Flexible
Another tremendous benefit of remote network monitoring is its flexibility. Since remote network monitoring doesn’t require any dedicated hardware or software, it is much more flexible than its local network monitoring counterpart. With remote network monitoring, you can access your network from anywhere in the world. This means that you can keep an eye on your network even when you’re not physically present. Remote network monitoring also allows for more customization and configuration than local network monitoring, meaning that organizations can tailor their monitoring setup to fit their specific needs.
Remote Network Monitoring Takes Place 24/7
Real-time remote network monitoring can be a useful tool for businesses that have multiple locations and for IT professionals who need to monitor a network 24/7. It can also be helpful in troubleshooting problems, as it can provide detailed insights as to what is happening on the network at any given moment.
