Product Description

Auvik for MSPs is a solution that gives the network visibility and process efficiency needed to boost the profitability of the network services.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

Traditional network management systems aren’t designed to deploy quickly and aren’t easy to use or understand. Many systems require an IT pro to purchase expensive on-premises hardware and software for every location they manage and hire a full-time employee to learn, understand, and use the system. The existing systems aren’t designed with today’s networks in mind.

With Auvik, it’s completely different. Our cloud-based network management software can be deployed in minutes, and its simple, intuitive interface can be used by even the most junior technician on an IT team. It doesn’t require deep network knowledge to use and it’s designed to scale with a business.

What do you like best?

The ease of use and good looking UI along with setup times which are very fast.

The support is also incredibly helpful and the alerting is very easy to manage or alternate.

There are a handful of export options for reporting that we give to our clients. This helps with so many statistic analysis options and showing the client why they may need to upgrade some of their equipment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The depth is limited for OID and reports and general backend customizations.

The ease of use is a pro but it would require more menus and an Expert view that allows us to tweak unsupported items within Auvik.

Almost like developing our own platform for our clients based on our needs.

The Map is exportable but there are no options to inject into Visio or PDF exports with additional options like IP addresses or vlan types.

If there was an export option for the maps with customized labeling on the maps, this would save our company hundreds of hours a year, if not more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Auvik is a great platform to have at your disposal. There are many other competitors that may even do more than Auvik. But you won't find a platform that is faster to deploy or make changes due to Auvik's automation and streamlined backend. We have saved a lot of time and effort just using the program every day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backups that are automated for most of our Cisco devices.

The benefits of having an auto generated map and single pane of glass software to look at networking components really helps our work.

We also do all of our monitoring and direct integration into our RMM platforms with this tool to auto generate tickets. This way our entire organization isn't trying to monitor 3 different platforms just to stay on top of their work.

We also utilize to maps for troubleshooting and quickly seeing IPs on the devices for circuit issue identification or if there is a break in communication on the network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Network discovery is amazing. Once it's setup your network devices will pull into a clean inventory. Your network's diagram will map automatically instead of being that messy and tedious network diagram that you manually had to update before. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some device utilization SNMP features are missing for Meraki devices. Just like any other feedback that I've had for Auvik before, if you let them know, they are glad to look into doing what is needed to make your wish a reality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Auvik has helped me troubleshoot about everything on my network from ISP outages to broadcast storms. I never before had one easy to use web portal where I can console to multiple devices at once while monitoring the entire network for any other issues. Auvik has cut down my troubleshooting time at least in half and allows me to give our clients a clear and precise report. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy to use GUI. The automatic saving of network device configurations. The API integrations. The amount of customization in alerts. The automated network map and labeling of ports used. The support has been very helpful in diagnosing monitoring issues as well. Chat support is easy to use. Response times are typically quick. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The load speed of pages can be pretty lengthy at times. The API integrations have some QoL features missing and we aren't able to things in the GUI very well. No reporting functionality for querying single or multiple client devices. This could be incredibly beneficial when trying to review 100's of device FW versions to see who is out of date etc... I know this feature is possible as we have obtained some reports before, but we have to request it from support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it as a primary tool for network alerts with the Connectwise integration. Allowing easy browser based SSH or Web access to devices can save a lot of time. It also allows us to see review client health and determine possible upgrade paths for networks. The integrations such as Datto, Connectwise, and Meraki allow us to monitor multiple device types in a single portal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Out of the box it's quick and easy to get it setup and get started and you can drill down and focus on problem areas or add deeper performance monitoring. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm only disappointed that didn't find and adopt it sooner that I did. We went through a lot of other monitoring solutions and the pricing was either complicated or it nickeled and dimed us at every turn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's indispensable. Utilize their marketing and support/assistance too. It is well worth it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to identify misconfigurations, security issues, bad traffic, root causes of outtages, sources of attacks, potential bots, backup and restore configurations, more easily access secure terminal sessions, identify when changes are made or incorrect connections are initiated in the field or by unapproved personnel. We get timely and informative alerts and it communicates well with out PSA Support Desk. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Auvik integrates wonderfully with my network and equipment. I am able to decide what networks and equipment I want to manage and which notification I want to receive. It's easy to setup and easy to use. This software allowed me to consolidate most of my current products into one view. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There aren't really any downsides that I have noticed yet. Some of the setup took a little troubleshooting, but the Auvik reps were very responsive and helpful during the process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm solving the problem of having to use many different platforms to monitor my network and have insight into individual devices in one place. In this way, it has made my job 100% easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Their support team is hands down the best I've worked with. They have solved all of my problems and gone as far as pushing beta features to us to satisfy our customer needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's still a growing platform of features, and they are adapting to our current COVID environments as quickly as they can. There is a high cost for the full feature set per node, but the quality is there or well into development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The cost is totally worth it if you have enough network devices. Their support is the best I work with any of my current paid tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Consistent historical backups in combination with access auditing have made customer accountability great. I didn't realize how much time we could save with the configuration rollback feature. Our discovery and onboarding times were cut in half by migrating everything to a single cloud platform. Deploy a collector, input some data, and the environment dynamically updates for us.

What do you like best?

I don't even know where to start with this question. I work for a school district, and the network I manage encompasses several facilities. Before Auvik, I was sprinting blindfolded through a minefield of problems. I literally set off a VTP bomb once trying to fix things. Don't do that, it is not fun. We had no monitoring, or back ups. I had to telnet into every switch and cdp neighbor my way around just to make a map, let alone fix what I broke. I knew the network needed some TLC, and I thought, " I will only live for probably another 40 - 50 years and I'm gonna need some help if we're gonna get this ship back to the surface." So I assembled the Avenge- I mean Auvik to assist in this monumental journey. I did trial runs with several other companies to make sure we got the most applicable solution and Auvik came in by a landslide. Their customer service is stellar, everything is backing up, I am putting out fires before the people know their connections are on fire - from my phone at my house in the middle of the night sometimes, I have a real time map now that can be filtered, adjusted, and commanded to show whatever I need in the moment. It'll show you vlan networks, devices on a certain subnet, and many other things. Auvik has reporting, device lifecycles, and sooo much more. The Auvik team has put countless hours into their Knowledge Base and Training Courses to make sure we as customers can properly put their hard work to maximum use. We have had Auvik fully deployed for just a few months now, and it has lowered network issue resolution times through real time monitoring and remote management capabilities (Yes, you can terminal into things from any browser), increased up time because issues can be resolved efficiently thanks to the customizable alerting, and it makes me a much more efficient Administrator by taking YEARS of work off my plate within minutes of deployment due to Auvik's discovery process and informational alerting.

If you do anything with a Network, you will see insurmountable value in this product in the same afternoon that you deploy the trial. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think a phone app would be pretty sweet, but using Auvik in the browser works perfectly so it's not a big deal at all.

Really though I'm sure if anyone had complaints that they legitimately took to Support, Support would figure out a way to help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

GIVE IT A TRIAL RUN, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Auvik is helping me solve my problems. I used to have all the problems. Now I have muuuch less problems and I have a to-do list made by Auvik's alerts.

Alerts paired with a nexus of information -known as their Knowledge Base- will at the very least point you in the right direction to a resolution. I use the knowledge base to fill in any gaps in my knowledge of the product ultimately assisting in my goal to reclaim the network.

I needed to set up IPFIX for a Barracuda Firewall for Traffic Insights.

Here's that article: https://support.auvik.com/hc/en-us/articles/360031016331-How-to-configure-IPFIX-on-Barracuda-NG-firewalls

Now I can see everything there is to see - within a single evening. No research on configuration needed because they walk you through everything.

I used Auvik's new Syslog feature to track down duplicate SVI IP's for an intercom system, as well as the interactive map to locate a down camera's switchport to get some deeper understanding on what was happening to our surveillance system.

I've also used Auvik's alert for Configuration Changes to see when changes are made to the network.

The troubleshooting and monitoring capabilities of Auvik are limited to how much you educate yourself on the solution (using their super legit training classes and certification course which is free for users), and how much time you are willing to put into fine tuning it.

Every Saturday at around 9pm I have a whole site going down. I get a flood of alerts letting me know something is happening and sometimes a few switches don't come back up all the way. Thanks to Auvik, now I know its more than just a few switches having problems intermittently, that there is a pattern, it's the whole site, and it's probably a power issue with the building. Still working on that one, but Auvik is helping me spend my time efficiently.

With the interactive maps, it is easy to educate supervisors and coworkers on how things are working and what should be changed or improved. I can even give access to technicians so they are in the know as well!

The benefits of Auvik so vastly out weigh the cost of the service, and I hope my review helps you get the answer you're looking for!

10/10 will purchase again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

auvik discover all device itself you only have to provide credential and set IPs in the good set of equipment. you can access to all your switch with ssh across all you site. you get email when some device become offline and with the map it's really easy to find where the problem start. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One thing I would like to see is something like a "localization" field which should let user to organize map site by site so the map will be more readable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The config backup feature, 2 factor authentication, MSP features, dynamic topology mapping, VLAN, VPN, MPLS tunnel visualization. What's not to love? It saves me hours of work weekly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The user picker is miserable. As we add clients who are able to access this awesome software, it becomes *exponentially* more difficult to ensure that we aren't cross-contaminating accounts between clients, which would/could be disastrous. Please fix this soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If you don't currently have automated switch, firewall, and router config backups, you NEED Auvik, right now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can now easily find VLAN port configuration issues, routing issues, topology problems, and even firmware issues with certain switches. (We identified a bug in an SNMP implementation on a certain version of Ruckus switch firmware using Auvik) The insight into our customer LANs and WANs has never been better.

Auvik provides easy deployment, management, and consistent monitoring. They're constantly enhancing the platform to increase security, usability, and functionality.

Auvik's service is amazing; never have I had such amazing support experiences. Quick, friendly, professional. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Deployment refinement takes time and practice. Out of the gate, ensuring devices are properly detected takes a bit of know how. This is easily mitigated by configuring logins and SNMP prior to deploying collectors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take Auvik for a test drive. They are a phenomenal company to work with. Their product is astounding, their support is amazing, and they're always adding new and innovative features to better not only their platform, but also the MSP market.

They are, what one should consider, the gold standard of corporate partnership. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

My favorite part of Auvik is backups of network equipment. But, the automatic network mapping has been a huge time saver. Auvik alerts keep us in the know about Virtual machines, network devices and even windows servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The least helpful feature in Auvik has been the Meraki plug in. It has not shown to be of any use to us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The heads up insight into the networks I manage. There are a ton of great things about Auvik, but two of my favorite features include:

The ability to remotely connect to a device's web management portal to simplify device management.

Real-time port utilization monitoring for information regarding if an uplink or downlink is oversaturated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What's great about Auvik is also one of its difficulties in that it is extremely expansive and feature-rich. Onboarding is a bit of a process as a result of the expansive amount of configuration required to get everything talking. That being said, their onboarding team is there every step of the way to guide you through it and make it a success. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time and put effort into onboarding Auvik properly, it will take some time to gather data, make sure every device is speaking and providing data. Don't underestimate the value you will get from deploying this product. The time you will save will more than offset the cost Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used to write my own scripts to ping servers and endpoints at other locations so that i would have some notice if something went wrong or a line dropped. Auvik has streamlined all of this. It also keeps scanning the networks so i see if someone added something. I also have a better window into data flows and get alerts when ports get saturated so i can look into the reason. The fact that you can also make your own alerts makes it even more customizable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The subnet scanning feature makes life easy because you (usually) don't have to go hunting for devices. I would also like to add that their support is incredible and their teams take feedback very, ver seriously!!

Along the lines of support, their knowledge base is chock full of amazingly helpful articles, sometimes that have nothing to do with Auvik and have everything to do with managing and maintaining other systems. I find that to be an incredible value!

I have yet to attend one of their MSP events but hope to in the future. They really do care about their partners and want to make the best product based on feedback. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The lack of a custom SNMP monitoring gauge style dashboard and the lack off application layer management. Unfortunately, these two things the Solarwinds platform did quite well. Otherwise, there really isn't much to dislike about Auvik. It really does what it says it's going to do! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a hard look at your network monitoring, then replace it with Auvik. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are replacing our legacy solarwinds installation that was monitoring all of our clients for years. Solarwinds was clunky and insanely expensive. Auvik has helped us to keep our costs in check while constantly offering new features.

We've actually utilized the new syslog and traffic insights functionality to deep dive in to some network issues that helped us root out the cause. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There is no single feature that I like best in Auvik - because EVERY single feature is unbelievably helpful. The ability to receive notifications about network events, easily sorting through logical and physical network maps, backing up and comparing highlighted changes between router and switch configurations, immediate identification of what switch ports cables are plugged into, integration with ConnectWise Automate, the pricing structure only charging for infrastructure devices --- the list goes on and on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The ONLY thing that I feel could be improved in Auvik is the network map zooming feels a little clunky. Definitely not a negative - just absolutely the only thing I can think of that I feel could be improved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation to others considering Auvik would be to call them up and have them give you a demo, watch some youtube videos, then just go for it - because it will completely change your world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Auvik allowed me to walk into an organization that had been plagued with an absolute IT mess and sort it all out incredibly fast. We are talking 20+ years of various IT companies, contractors, non-uniform ANYTHING, different naming conventions, nothing labeled anywhere, nothing inventoried, 20+ years of generational spread between devices still in use, shadow IT, rogue devices, etc - across several offices - spread out over the US. Sorting all of this out without Auvik likely would have taken years - if it was even feasible without blowing everything up and starting over. With Auvik, I was able to immediately start to unravel everything - and had all of the issues listed above 100% resolved within a few months - some things within a week or two. Truly unbelievable.

What do you like best?

It allows me to see the physical network in real time. I lose so much time trying to track down issues and this is a one stop location for a variety of issues. Even when there is a power event. I can call the client often times before they realize that there is a system outage. We have Auvik deployed at many of our clients sites. We can share this information with them and in most cases they do not have to understand things on a technical level. They can literally see their network and that is a big plus. I am a fan of layout and I am sure that the more I use it, the more comfortable I will become. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve to adjust alerts. I have to look more in to the certification. I do not have a lot of negatives to mention. Adjusting the alerts is the most difficult thing that I have experienced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The answer is the same as the first question. I able able to pinpoint an outage and trace it to its source with out having to jump around from switch to switch. The same benefits I mentioned earlier in what I like best about Auvik. Our team of techs see the value in Auvik and we have used this in the past on a dedicated monitor so that if an alert were to spawn we could see that issue in real time.

What do you like best?

I like that it grabs everything including the configurations from my network gear. It keeps changes to configurations and allows me to restore configurations when I lose a piece of equipment or a mistake is made. I also like the analytics. The dashboards are helpful as well. I like that I can filter what it displays because some of the networks we monitor can be pretty large. Filters can also be saved so I don't have to recreate them every time I get into the interface. It also integrates with my ticketing software well and gives me good clear descriptions of what is wrong when it creates a ticket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it seems like I do a lot of clicking to get to the information I want. Other than that there really isn't anything that bugs me about the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to think through how you will set it up. It can do amazing things but only if you are diligent in your planning. If you put it on your network and just tell it to scan everything you will have a bunch of clean up to do when it is done scanning. It is also good to standardize you community strings and user accounts for your network gear. It is much easier to manage that way. Follow the documentation when setting it up because it will help you avoid some headaches. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It shows me right where the issue is and allows me to give my clients an easy to understand dashboard. Troubleshooting time is reduced as well as recovery time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I would highly recommend taking the time to actually learn the product. It can be a bit overwhelming but setting everything up with care is where you get the most data collection and automation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simple installation process and the ease of Navigation across client sites Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The training video content can be outdated some links refer to older version. some content is too small to see online "maybe some more YouTube type video and some of the documentation has lots of reference "go to other related items" where it could be useful to have a little more content in the document rather than "refer to this topic" so you are not jumping around different areas. But in saying that I can totally relate to the documentation can be so outdated so quick.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Still information gathering no real problems

The benefits are that it is a great all round interrogation tool - great interface with plenty of visual detail

Like the diagrams visual representation of a link Network where the link colour represents LAN or WAN or wireless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really like the detailed information we get from the devices in Auvik and the alerts help us to stay in control off the network.

And I also like the Auvik team which always helps us when we needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to simple create our own wallboards like a alerting wallboard and overview wallboard which we can easily manage ourselves. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It would be nice to have more reports functions without using the API. (I know it is coming with the use of PowerBI)

It also would be nice to create our own wallboards more easily.

More possibility’s to send cli commands to the devices. So we can use Auvik as a upgrade tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Configuration mismatches, broadcasts/multicasts on the network, internet connection lost, high cpu/memory utilization on devices etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Auvik's interface is second to none. I can easily browse around the interactive map, the dashboards and troubleshooting views are all smartly designed to make it as easy possible to view the data on a device or interface. Hands down the best thing about Auvik for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There aren't a lot of downsides to Auvik, but at some point it would be great to add in some diagramming capabilities so you can organize the map a bit and make some logical connections. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Knowing more about the network and critical device status is solving problems before they come up. Knowing where devices are connected on a switch is huge help and backing up Cisco configurations along with their life cycle status is a huge benefit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Auvik is extremely useful at understanding your network and troubleshooting issues. It's easy to setup and start identifying devices right away. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can get a little slow and cumbersome if you have a large environment. You can break it down into sub-environments but then you don't get the overall map for everything, just for each section you make. Managing the alerting can also be rather cumbersome. Some alerts don't seem to auto-close themselves correctly. And trying to clean up old alerts, especially if there are a lot, is not the easiest thing to do. This admittedly may be because we didn't pay attention to the alerting at first and so didn't configure it that much. So it may be less of an issue if you do it correctly from the beginning. Other than that, I really have no issues with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Demo it in your own environment, or a client environment you have full access to. Obviously you get far more information with managed switches than with non-managed ones or hubs. The more access you have to the devices (SNMP, SSH, WMI, etc) then the more useful the product will be to you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Auvik is great not only at helping you map out and understand your network but it's also great at helping you troubleshoot issues. Knowing how your devices are connected really helps narrow down the root cause. I have also found many devices at client sites that someone had setup years ago, left the company and know one knew was still there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

graph repoting, traffic insights and cisco integration Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

support not being 24x7x365 being AU this is a MAJOR issue for us to wait another day to get support on issues potentially, Sophos support limited on which you keep blaming Sophos but features are added all the time to Cisco and Fortinet Sophos has an open API stack that you haven't integrated with Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly recommend using the product, it has saved our organisation significant pain and heart ache around network issues and given us an ability to sell network managed services providing another revenue stream. Auvik has a number of integrations and we leverage these to get the most out of the tool overall we are extremely happy with what Auvik has provided our business.
