With the advent of network mapping tools, this process has become more simplified.At the dawn of computer networking, interconnected systems were often contained to a building, if not a single room.

Our technology is model-free so is not limited to providing such insight in relation to IT networks. Please feel free to visit our website – www.ontonix.com – for case studies and a host of additional information.
