AccelOps Enhances Analytics Platform With Advanced IT Security, Threat Management and Operations Intelligence Capabilities

New AccelOps 4 Release Boasts Machine-Learning Statistical Anomaly Detection, Watch List Creation and Synthetic Transaction Monitoring

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 -- AccelOps, the leading IT operations analytics platform for the modern data center, today announces the release of AccelOps 4, which enhances capabilities for IT network security, threat management and operations intelligence. Industry innovations in the release include statistical anomaly detection, watch list creation and synthetic transaction monitoring.

AccelOps 4 is an IT operations analytics platform for security, performance and compliance monitoring from one screen, enabling organizations to maximize the power of their machine data across public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Through automatic discovery, complex analysis and policy-based automation, AccelOps enables organizations to gain insight into their data, and detect and respond to trends, allowing them to be more responsive and competitive as they expand their IT capabilities.

AccelOps adds several industry-leading capabilities to its fourth-generation release:

  • Statistical Anomaly Detection - AccelOps' new machine-learning algorithm profiles traffic and metrics on all the devices on the network, triggering alerts when anomalies are detected or thresholds are reached.
  • InTeleport™ - AccelOps enables users to now "tunnel in" between the AccelOps Collector and Supervisor to reach any server on the system, making it ideal for organizations with remote sites, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).
  • Watch List Creation - AccelOps automatically creates watch lists of users, websites or applications to keep an eye on.
  • Synthetic Transaction Monitoring - Using the plug-in Selenium, synthetic transaction monitoring records moves to enable identification of problems on websites and applications before problems affect end-users or customers.
  • Hypervisor-Agnostic - AccelOps runs on VMware ESXi, and now on Microsoft Hyper-V and Red Hat KVM.

"We have always loved the amount of data that we are able to collect and search using AccelOps," said Jason Brown, CTO at NetCuras, Inc. "In the new release, AccelOps adds some very useful troubleshooting tools, as well as system upgrades and dashboard customization capabilities."

With its unique all-in-one platform, AccelOps 4 allows IT staffs to minimize the number of point solutions used.

In a recent research report, Gartner examined the benefits of a unified monitoring and log analytics platform. "Enterprise Infrastructure and Operations teams should combine unified monitoring and log analytics technologies to build a simpler, faster and cost-effective approach to managing the availability of today's highly complex and dynamic environments," wrote analysts Jonah Kowall and Colin Fletcher in "Modernize Your Monitoring Strategy by Combining Unified Monitoring and Log Analytics Tools." "Infrastructure and operations teams are seeing limited results from infrastructure monitoring tools bought in silos based on domain expertise focus versus vetted requirements."

AccelOps discovers, analyzes and automates IT environments in real time, providing constant insight. The platform discovers all resources assets and entities, whether virtual or physical; analyzes with powerful capabilities that forecast trends and proactively respond to market needs; and automates business decisions once actions, thresholds and risk tolerances are determined.

"We continue to drive the industry with our innovations," said Flint Brenton, president and CEO of AccelOps. "No one else has the powerful capabilities that we have, such as the new machine-learning statistical anomaly detection on structured data. Our customers, both enterprises and managed service providers, reap the benefits."

AccelOps 4 is generally available now. More product details are available at www.accelops.com/products/accelops4.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
