Al Ain Sports & Culture Club (AASCC) is at the forefront of sporting excellence in the UAE, striving to bring unmatched success to the nation in all sports’ fields. AASCC has achieved an impressive track record across sports during the past four decades, with soccer as its flagship. AASCC has brought its local community together, cultivated a rich history, and promoted economic development in the UAE.

Running AASCC comes with a few challenges. Data travels to and from different departments and subsidiaries of AASCC, and it had to maintain the integrity and security of these data transfers. The network also needed to be secured against external threats and downtime needed to be avoided. These were some of the challenges AASCC was experiencing in ensuring a seamless experience for both employees and customers.

Then, the pandemic struck unannounced and effectively introduced a variety of challenges to overcome. AASCC needed to quickly pivot to an environment where everyone could remotely access AASCC’s network while simultaneously ensuring normal, secure network operations.

ManageEngine OpManager was the go-to solution for AASCC, ensuring that the data center was up and running 24/7. OpManager shows a full map of the network, highlighting what device is down and where it’s located to make for quick troubleshooting. Real-time metrics in OpManager helped with easier decision-making, and device configuration backups have helped the IT operations team save both time and effort.

OpManager has everything that AASCC needed in its network monitoring capabilities, and it received an emphatic vote of confidence from Mr. Mohd Jaffer Tawfiq Murtaja, information security officer at AASCC.

OpManager is a part of ManageEngine’s ITOM suite of solutions. Apart from network monitoring, this suite also offers solutions for streamlining server monitoring, application monitoring, bandwidth monitoring, configuration management, firewall security and compliance, and IP address and switch port management. This is why ManageEngine’s ITOM solutions are the ideal choice for over one million IT admins worldwide.
