What is Nagios XI?

Nagios XI is a network monitoring platform that provides discovery, monitoring, alerting, graphing, and reporting for your entire infrastructure, including servers, operating systems, applications, network devices, websites, hypervisors, cloud servers, and much more. Nagios XI includes a UI that makes configuration quicker and easier.

Why Should You Use the Nagios XI Connector?

The Nagios XI connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • find vulnerabilities quickly and remediate

How Does This Connector Work?
