I'm sure you hear it all the time – we are becoming a more network centric world. Is this just hype? I don't think so and a recent customer example, I think proves the point.
Used to be only really large organizations worried about network uptime and cyber security. These days the network is so critical to revenue and productivity that mid-sized and smaller organizations are facing the same issues.
Now the network is even vital in high-end residences. As more residential networks pop-up and data networks are joined by home security and advanced audio video systems -security and uptime become a much more serious issue.
A great example is Certified Cyber Solutions (CCS) a company that provides a product SAM (Secure Access Manager) that helps installers and resellers of residential systems that employ IP networks, such as audio/video, home security and "smart home" systems to protect their customers from cyber threats.
CCS is using dopplerVUE as their network monitoring platform to enable their SAM product (screenshot below). dopplerVUE's unique architecture allows maximum flexibility to customize data collection and data display, making it uniquely suitable for CCS and other hardware and software manufacturers who need an uptime monitoring, diagnosis, cybersecurity and compliance component to their products.
With predictions that there will be 215 million IP enabled devices by 2012, it's clear that network monitoring will become a more critical activity for the mainstream. Seems like the world is becoming more network-centric one device at a time. Do you see the trend as well?-----
