Castle Rock Computing SNMPc alternative you should consider

28 Jun 2021

In today’s post we want to tell you about Castle Rock Computing SNMPc a pioneer solution for SNMP management and one of the most recognised systems in the world. 

About Castle Rock Computing and SNMPc 

Castle Rock Computing is an American company that was founded in 1987.  

In 1989, the company launched SNMPc Network Manager, the first Network Management System for SNMP, compatible with Windows operating systems. The product rapidly reached considerable success in the industry among IT professionals worldwide, becoming one of the most recognised NMS on the market. Ten years later, in 1998, SNMPc Enterprise Network Manager was launched.  

According to the research we carried out and information obtained from different sources, SNMPc Network Manager is only accessible to US government entities. Therefore, SNMPc Enterprise Network Manager is available to governmental organisations, offering them annual updates and support. Furthermore, our research showed several partners distributing the Enterprise version to the ones who already possess current licenses. 

What is SNMPc Enterprise Network Manager? 

The solution is a pioneer NMS system that has achieved more than 120.000 users around the globe. It was designed for IT operators to manage SNMP devices, offering them numerous  features. It is widely considered a complete and simple solution, suitable to manage simple devices without any difficulty.   

The flexibility of this solution allowed users to make their own integration by themselves and offered them a wide range of management options to properly handle SNMP devices within the IT environment.
