    Auvik is a fantastic product for MSPs looking to more effectively and efficiently monitor and manage their clients' network infrastructure. It is a great fit for MSPs serving SMBs. It is a less good fit for very small IT Support companies, clients with fewer than five network devices, or very large enterprises looking for an in-house network management solution.

    So not everyone is in need of a smart AI checking their network metrics looking for issues before they happen or finding and alerting on problems that the network staff may not have noticed, but if you have the budget for it, it could be a huge time saver for your whole department.

    Pros

    Auvik Networks Inc.

    • Auvik is the big pic tool of choice for network diagramming, helps layout of our network infrastructure, and we'll know immediately the status of the devices that are successfully communicating, and those that may have, for example, credentials issues.
    • Auvik's "Traffic Insights" are key accelerators for intuitively isolating and resolving traffic-related issues quickly and easily, and the historical information makes it simpler to deduce what aspects may need replacement, capacity improvement, or possibly even re-architecture.
    • Auvik integration tools are excellent solution enhancers - that are of particular interest to our company, as we make use of MS Teams and Connectwise products; we would like to see some features to integrate to ServiceNow as well.

    Cons

    Auvik Networks Inc.

    • Install and launch instructions, especially regarding shared collectors can be difficult to follow.
    • The branded colors of gray and black lines can be hard to understand and things with a higher contrast like green for good connections might be beneficial.
    • Persistent filters on the traffic insights dashboard would be useful.

    • May require an implementer to get this set up and running.
    • For a software based service that you can run on your own VM's, price is still very high.
    • The first setup can be a bear and you will need much help from TAC.

        Usability

        Auvik Networks Inc.

        The program can be a bit unwieldy at times, however the majority of information is displayed in a readable and friendly way. The maps and popup information box from the bottom can be harder to use on a smaller screen but on a 1080p+ display tends to work fine.

        Alternatives Considered

        Auvik Networks Inc.

        I came onboard with Solarwinds already installed and running. It took me some time to learn my way around the Web interface. Nice product but a little convoluted for me. We weren't using it to it's full potential. It did work well for network monitoring, and configuration backups. Compared to Auvik, the interface of Auvik is cleaner and easier to navigate. Not needing to connect to the VPN to view is also a big advantage. We evaluated both Darktrace and LogRhythm before evaluating Auvik. Both of these products were impressive but required a little more configuration time at initial setup. The biggest reason for deciding on Auvik was the price to be honest. Auvik beat the others pricing by over 50% easily. As impressive as the others were, after evaluating Auvik, we were skeptical that the price would be too high just like the others. Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised and was a no brainer on our final decision to pursue Auvik

        Scalability

        Auvik Networks Inc.

        Auvik has worked on sites with 15+ offices connected with VPN's and we have not encountered any issues with the monitoring. On larger sites the map can be a bit cumbersome to read however it can be cleaned up easily with device filters.

        Return on Investment

        Auvik Networks Inc.

        • the ROI for Auvik comes from the time it saves in updating documentation and onboarding, new clients. We no longer have to spend a day investigating a network and documenting it, this is life and up to date so you always have true information for reporting and troubleshooting.

        • Loads of time saved diagnosing network issues.
        • Much effort saved having to determine network performance metrics by hand.
        • The Cisco brand is generally safe and trusted so you get that additional peace of mind.
