Aachen, March 07, 2022—In this year's “Professional User Rating IT Operations” by the analyst firm techconsult, the German network and security manufacturer LANCOM Systems has asserted its top position. For the third time in a row, users gave LANCOM top marks in the category “Network Management & Monitoring”. This is the second top placement for LANCOM in this year's user survey, as they have already taken the title as best VPN provider.


For this independent study, research and analyst firm techconsult surveyed over 3,200 IT managers regarding their satisfaction with IT solutions on the market and their providers. In the “Network Management & Monitoring” category, users awarded top marks to LANCOM in both the solution and manufacturer ratings, and they rated the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) as the best solution in this field.



Performance and range of functions


The LMC scored highly with its performance, high availability, and remote capability, which earned it the top spot in the “Performance” category. In terms of features, too, the LMC received top ratings. Particularly convincing are the detailed real-time monitoring and network analysis, the anomaly detection, and the alerting features. These monitor not only the current performance of the network: In the best case, alerts are issued that allow a reaction even before a problem occurs. The LMC also received outstanding ratings for product loyalty as, of all the solutions evaluated, it was the one most likely to be recommended.



Flexible deployment and overall portfolio


The consistently positive perception by the users is also reflected in the manufacturer rating. Users gave top marks for the flexible deployment options offered by the LMC, which can be operated as a public or private cloud, or even on-premises. Equally highly rated was the overall LANCOM product portfolio with its integrated approach to network management for WAN, LAN, WLAN, and Security.


Lutz Fröhlich, Vice President of Cloud Management & Services at LANCOM: “Feedback from our users is invaluable to us. This top placing shows that we are on the right path with the LANCOM Management Cloud. But we are also highly motivated to keep on developing our cloud services. Digitization absolutely needs a basis built on trust. This is exactly what we want to deliver with our digitally sovereign network management solutions made in Germany.”
