WhatsUp IP Address Manager

WhatsUp IP Address Manager automates the discovery, documentation and management of your IP space.

Why do organizations need IP Address Management (IPAM)?

The proliferation of IP telephones, mobile computers, and virtual machines has made the planning, allocating and managing of IP addresses more complex and critical. A mismanaged IP space can cause network outages, increase troubleshooting time, or cripple an otherwise healthy network. Enterprise-ready IPAM products simplify IP address management by automating previously manual tasks and provide visibility into IP utilization, duplicate IP Addresses and enable the correlation of IP addresses to devices historically. WhatsUp IP Address Manager relieves the risk factors from the Network Administrator by automating the tedious tasks associated with IP address management.
