The industrial control cabinet has long been a staple in industrial environments. It provides a neat solution to keeping devices organized, often with protection against harmful conditions found on factory floors like excessive dust or humidity. With the rise of automation, the devices in a cabinet have become more varied as IIoT has required more network connectivity than in the past. Because of this, the role of ensuring all the parts inside the cabinet are working falls somewhere between the OT technicians and IT administrators. Knowing what’s going on inside an industrial cabinet requires a combined overview – which is only possible with a holistic monitoring approach that spans OT, IT and the IIoT.

In today's fast-paced and interconnected world, organizations heavily rely on their network infrastructure to support their daily operations. Ensuring the security and optimal performance of these networks can be a complex task.
We realized early on that our users needed to access their PRTG alarms and data while at home, at work, or even on the go and after hours. This led us to develop an app for iPhone and iPad, followed quickly by an Android version. Briefly, we also had a Blackberry and Windows Mobile app – but the history of those is a story for another day… 😉
You’re crazy if you don’t start in the cloud; you’re crazy if you stay on it.
Backing up is not only for user data; it's also critical for security and network device configuration data. Although these kinds of backups can be complex and time-consuming, there are tools that help automate the process. Let's look at how BackBox and Paessler PRTG monitoring software can be used to do this.
If it is obvious that increasing requirements for the economy to effectively protect the climate lay in our future, how do smart decision-makers prepare for the new normal today? Each region of our world differs from the other in its economic parameters. And different ways of asking can sometimes yield conflicting answers. What unites us all is the disruptive impact of climate change, which is posing an ever-increasing threat to humankind. In this study, we examine the ASEAN and ANZ markets in more detail, to better understand the current state of sustainability practices among businesses — and dive into current barriers in deploying green IT practices.

The Red Cross saves lives. To do so, it needs blood. In Upper Austria, this blood is collected, managed, and distributed at the Red Cross Blood Donation Center in Linz. Stephan Federsel is in charge of the IT at The Red Cross of Upper Austria as well as at the center in Linz. In order to detect issues immediately (and prevent potential downtimes and failures), Stephan and his team must be able to keep a constant eye on the availability and performance of the entire IT infrastructure. PRTG, software developed by the monitoring specialists at Paessler AG in Nuremberg/Germany, lets them do this. David Jungwirth, a member of Stephan’s team, is responsible for the implementation of PRTG at the blood donation center.

After all, agriculture currently consumes 70 percent of our drinking water supplies worldwide. In most cases, irrigation technology is outdated or not adapted to the conditions.
