Monitis Announces Game-Changing Events Monitoring as a Service

San Jose, CA – October 20, 2010 – Monitis, the leading provider of the world’s first Cloud-based network and application monitoring suite, today announced a significant new product launch – the Monitis Logs, on-demand system events log monitoring and analysis service. Monitis Logs enables IT managers and system administrators to be alerted when critical issues arise during the course of standard system and application level processes.

Monitis Logs is a web-based, real-time universal log analyzer which can collect, analyze and report any type of log files:

  • event logs from distributed Windows machines,
  • system logs from distributed Unix machines,
  • routers, switches, and other network devices,
  • application logs from Apache and IIS web server,
  • FTP servers,
  • MS SQL and Oracle database servers,
  • DHCP servers.

Monitis Logs is highly customizable, enabling IT managers and system administrators to centrally manage notifications for events that are important to them.

At present, there is no comparable system on the market that can monitor each and every aspect of application and network performance from the Cloud.

Monitis Logs helps monitor threats to the enterprise IT resources and tightens security policies in the enterprise. Thus, it helps organizations comply with various regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI), as well as archives logs for the purpose of network auditing and forensic analysis.

Monitis Logs’ on-demand log analyzer service also reduces system downtime, and increases network performance in the enterprise in a cost efficient way. It greatly improves visibility and saves hours of work for system administrators to troubleshoot problems on servers, applications, and the network.

Monitis Logs utilizes Syslog-ng and Rsyslog – the most widely-used open source tools for aggregating logs from multiple sources. They are already deployed in many server environments to consolidate logs across multiple machines on a LAN. In order to deal with massive amount of data, Monitis Logs uses a Casandra database, a highly scalable second-generation distributed database used by companies like Facebook, Twitter, Rackspace, and Digg.

With Monitis Logs, you can collect logs from any number of Syslog-ng or Rsyslog instances. “The benefits are clear.” Said Monitis Founder and CEO, Hovhannes Avoyan, “You already have tons of installed application and servers that you need to keep running and up-to-date. So why install more just for network management and why provision new costly servers. Take advantage of what you already have to consolidate and manage all of your logs from the Cloud! Talk about saving time!”
