SolarWinds® Inc., a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the availability of its latest network management offering, SolarWinds User Device Tracker (UDT). Available as a standalone product or combined with other SolarWinds products, SolarWinds UDT helps network engineers and IT pros identify the current and past location of a network device.

“UDT delivers the device-tracking and forensic history of an expensive switch port-tracking appliance at a much lower price point,” said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds’ VP Product Marketing and Product Management. “It also analyzes switch capacity, helping IT staff reclaim ports that are not being used and balance utilization among switches. This feature saves money in that it allows IT to avoid costly and unnecessary switch purchases.”

SolarWinds’ UDT provides network engineers with a powerful, affordable, easy-to-use switch port tracking solutions that enables instant access to connected device location. When combined with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, users get one consistent user interface, plus an integrated alerting and reporting engine. With the user interface integration, users can customize their web interface to blend data from both products.

SolarWinds User Device Tracker Key Features:
  • Locate network devices, including confirmed rogue devices
    • Search with an IP address, Hostname, or MAC address
    • Confirm current location, location history of currently connected and unconnected devices, or add to watch list to be notified when device connects to network in the future
  • Display switch capacities
    • View individual ports per switch, reclaiming unused ports and avoiding unnecessary and expensive switch purchases
    • Discover switches operating near full capacity
  • Schedule automatic network discovery and device watch lists
    • Monitor new switches on your network immediately
    • Be notified the moment a specific device connects to the network, allowing you to respond immediately to network threats and events

“In the past, you had to manually try to figure out where a MAC or IP address sits unless you invested in an expensive system. UDT helps me manage over one hundred VLANs that I used to need a spreadsheet to track,” said Don Click, Senior Infrastructure Manager, Denton County Technology Services. “If we had a virus-infected machine in the past, we wouldn’t have a clue where it is. Now we can type in the machine name and find it instantly. When we start doing network device inventory, UDT will save not just hours, but days of time.”

“The age-old question of what is running on your network has only gotten more complex over the years. Network devices are growing in number and diversity, and network monitoring and management can no longer be a passive activity,” said Jim Frey, Managing Research Director for Enterprise Management Associates. “Operators need tools that deliver the knowledge they need to take charge and make informed decisions fast. Products like the SolarWinds User Device Tracker help identify and locate devices on the network – wanted or unwanted – quickly and painlessly, and always up to date. That means better asset management as well as faster incident response – both big benefits for daily operations.”

I almost never comment, however I browsed a few of the remarks on "SOLARWINDS INTRODUCES USER DEVICE TRACKER (UDT) FOR COMPREHENSIVE SWITCH PORT MAPPING".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or do some of the remarks come across like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have
to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of
all your social networking pages like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work
due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
