Turning network management on its head, one beautiful map at a time
Managing an IT network is much harder than it needs to be. Today, network administrators still type code, line by line, into screens that most of us haven’t seen since DOS went extinct.
The consumerization of IT — putting a simple graphical interface on top of a complex piece of technology — has revolutionized our world. But consumerization has almost entirely bypassed the networking industry.
At Auvik, we’re bringing the simplicity of software to the conventional practices of managing network hardware.
Our cloud-based network operations system converts dozens of normally complex and time-consuming tasks to simple, automated steps. And it’s all done through a beautiful and easy-to-use interface.
Auvik is turning network operations on its head.

What about that name?
Auviq (with a “q”) is an Inuit word for a block of snow used in building an igloo. In other words, it’s a foundational building block, much like a component in a network. Auvik is pronounced AWE-vick. Here’s a handy way to remember: AWE-vick makes network operations AWE-some.
