Powerful Network Management Solution With No Long Term Commitment

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) -

News Facts

  • Entuity®, a leading provider of enterprise network management software, today announced the immediate availability of a smaller version of its flagship product, Eye of the Storm (EYE) Enterprise. Eye of the Storm Network Professional Edition (EYE NPE) was specifically designed for IT administrators who need a solid network management solution for networks up to 150 devices or 7,500 managed objects. EYE NPE includes Discovery & Inventory, Fault Monitoring and Performance Management in a tightly integrated and highly automated product suite. A rich set of predefined reports are easily generated and readily distributed in popular formats. With EYE NPE, network administrators can increase operational efficiency and assure application health by quickly detecting and identifying potential network problems that may be affecting application service delivery.
  • EYE NPE is available to download as a free full-featured 14 day trial on the eyenpe.com website. During the trial period, users can easily initiate a monthly subscription ($795 USD, £595 + VAT, or EUR 695) through WorldPay, a globally recognized secure payment website. There is no long term commitment and active users can discontinue their subscription anytime without penalty. EYE NPE is the first Entuity product to be offered in a "pay-for-what-you-use" model made popular by the advent of cloud computing environments. A separate perpetual license option is also available by contacting npesales@entuity.com.
  • EYE NPE delivers a seamless solution that combines network performance, resource management, and service availability for an accurate view of the network showing how all of the pieces come together to support the business. This powerful and affordable software offers large enterprise-class network management functionality never before available to organizations with networks of up to 150 devices or 7500 objects.
  • While other alternatives exist, some of which may appear to be free, IT administrators often spend too much time conducting analyses or generating reports that are completed automatically in EYE NPE. Administrators of smaller networks, in fact, have as great a need for operational efficiency as administrators of larger networks. To help meet this goal, EYE NPE shares the same development platform and codebase as the time-tested Entuity flagship Eye of the Storm Enterprise that has been a recognized leader in automation, tight module integration and operational efficiency for over 14 years. Eye of the Storm Enterprise is widely used by individual companies with large global networks, System Integrators and Managed Service Providers.
  • EYE NPE functionality goes well beyond any competitive product in its class. EYE NPE root cause analysis reduces mean-time-to-resolution while lowering the overall cost of administration. Other products in this class typically provide only a red light/green light view of events and faults. EYE NPE also provides continual automatic discovery of network devices without requiring administrator intervention or effort. The result is an always-up-to-date topology map tightly integrated with inventory and events.

  • Quote, attributed to Jonah Kowall, Research Director - Gartner - Research Advisory Services, IT Operations Management
    "Reliable, easy to use, and cost effective 'good enough' network monitoring is a continuing trend in enterprise buying habits, yet these products may have issues as the business expands to a larger scale footprint. Offering scalable and efficient products to the market, with a subscription model bucks the trend of the prior lump sum procurement model, is how enterprises wish to purchase software."

  • Quote, attributed to Michael Jannery, President and CEO, Entuity
    "For over 14 years, Entuity has been delivering outstanding all-in-one network management solutions to some of the world's largest enterprises. With the advent of EYE NPE, we now have an opportunity to deliver an enterprise class solution to organizations that may not have a full staff of network administrators or an enterprise-sized budget. Our future proof technology, operational efficiency and business focus helps ensure that EYE NPE will gain the same respect EYE Enterprise has earned in larger organizations."

  • Quote, attributed to Peter Christensen, Product Marketing Manager, Entuity
    "Network administration has advanced well beyond the foundational management of individual pieces of technology. Whether it's a user who can't access an important business application, the CEO who can't get email or a datacenter engineer needing more bandwidth for the latest virtualized server, EYE NPE features enterprise-proven functionality to keep you out in front of network issues and helps pave the way to greater operational effectiveness."
