FireScope Races Past Network Monitoring Competition With Dash

FireScope, the leading innovator of IT Service Management solutions, today announces the availability of FireScope Dash, a powerful monitoring solution that delivers more features for less cost than comparable offerings from SolarWinds, IPSwitch and others.

LONDON, June 24. FireScope, the leading innovator of IT Service Management solutions, today announces the availability of FireScope Dash, a powerful monitoring solution that delivers more features for less cost than comparable offerings from SolarWinds, IPSwitch and others.

Offered as either a virtual or a physical appliance, FireScope Dash bypasses the traditional headaches of solution deployments by including the complete software stack pre-installed and ready to start. This design, when coupled with FireScope Dash's built-in discovery and auto-configuration, enables organisations to get to their first real-time dashboards of infrastructure status and performance in minutes.

"Dash is a disruptor for the industry," said Mark Lynd, President and COO of FireScope. "For too long they've been treading water with solutions built from legacy architectures that require too much cost and effort to configure, use and maintain, and have no way to support the recent explosion of new technologies. I hope they take a good look at Dash and realise that the bar is being set higher."

  The single, integrated solution includes:
  --  Discovery -- The included discovery feature identifies critical
      hardware, operating systems and networked applications and
      automatically configures monitoring using profiles from over 1500+
      commonly used assets.
  --  Real-Time Monitoring -- Traditional monitoring capabilities such as
      SNMP, Syslog and WMI/Perfmon are just a few of FireScope Dash's
      built-in set of over 20+ monitoring methodologies.  Highlights of this
      list include optional agents for most commonly used platforms, LDAP
      connectivity, direct database querying, an Enterprise Service Bus and
      more.
  --  Event Analysis -- All metrics are normalised and monitored in
      real-time for performance thresholds, security events, error trapping
      and any first indicators of potential incident.  Configuration of
      events is performed using plain-language selections to enable users of
      any experience level to define even the most complex events.
  --  Dashboards and Reporting -- In addition to automatically generated
      dashboards and dynamic inline reporting, FireScope Dash enables users
      to create their own dashboard pages and reports, all without the need
      to install additional client-side software or write code.  Reports can
      easily become dashboard components; no need to build the same view
      twice.
  --  Customisability -- Users can easily extend FireScope Dash's out of the
      box configuration to monitor custom applications, define events,
      configure escalating notification and more -- all without the need to
      write code, edit files or install additional software.
