AppNeta Offers Cloud-delivered Insight To Path, Packet, Flow and Device

AppNeta today announced the addition of device monitoring to its suite of Network Performance Management (NPM) capabilities. This addition augments the end-to-end service visibility of AppNeta’s PathView Cloud service, which now brings network engineers and IT leaders the only solution in the market that integrates diagnostic monitoring and troubleshooting across all four elements of the network performance stack: path, packet, flow and device.

Traditional network performance management and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) solutions have historically shown just the status of network devices and the volume of data transmitted up to the edge of the network that is owned, which only provides limited visibility. The cloud-delivered PathView Cloud service offers an unprecedented 360º view into known, owned networks and beyond to the WAN, Internet, cloud services and third-party networks. As the only network performance management service to provide complete insight from every element of the network performance stack – path, packet, flow and device – PathView Cloud ensures the experience of application end users by providing visibility and analysis of network performance and application traffic.

“We are excited to offer a new approach to network performance management designed to monitor and evaluate today’s modern networks from one, integrated solution that looks across network paths, packet captures, flow data and device status,” said Jim Melvin, CEO, AppNeta. “We are taking network performance management to a new level where it can actually be easy, affordable, and provide visibility we know that you cannot get from traditional SNMP solutions today.”

With today’s launch of PathView Cloud with on-demand SNMP, the solution now offers extremely lightweight and intelligent device monitoring capabilities, continuously monitoring the performance across the network, and when an issue is detected, gathering the relevant data across network paths, packet captures, flow data and device status, so the problem can be located and resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“I am very excited at the addition of device monitoring to AppNeta’s suite of network monitoring solutions,” said Michael Paynter, CEO, Tier3 Technologies. “We’re always looking for cost-effective and unique solutions to meet our managed service needs for clients, and until now, I’ve been unable to find a solution that offers total visibility into all four elements of the performance stack. This service provides just what I have been looking for to help me meet client needs and our MSP offering objectives. I anticipate that the industry-first, on-demand SNMP capability will completely change our network monitoring approach.”

All existing PathView Cloud customers automatically receive the new on-demand SNMP monitoring capabilities. For more information or a free trial, visit

AppNeta Launches Global MSP Partner Program

AppNeta today announced the launch of a new partner program for Managed Service Providers (MSPs). The AppNeta MSP Partner Program is designed to offer easy, revenue-generating services for assuring performance of critical applications such as VoIP, video conferencing, virtualization and web-based services.

The new MSP Partner Program offers unique pricing terms, centralized dashboards and alerts, white-labeled custom branded interface and a utility-based MRR billing model.

“We understand the demands on customer networks today, especially as business applications become more performance-sensitive. It is absolutely necessary for MSPs to have 24/7 performance visibility,” said Jim Melvin, CEO of AppNeta. “AppNeta is partnering with MSPs to develop an easy-to-implement service assurance program that will not only improve customer satisfaction, but will create new revenue sources at the same time.”

AppNeta Enhances Web Application Performance Monitoring

AppNeta today announced the launch of PathView Cloud with AppView Web for insight into Web application performance for end users. PathView Cloud automatically delivers Web performance visibility from the perspective of remote enterprise users, and also delivers network performance insight.

“When the Electronic Health Record (EHR) applications don’t perform well, end users get frustrated, adoption decreases, and the value of the application is never realized,” said Bob Dupuis, Director, Technical Services, Arcadia Solutions. “By using PathView Cloud with AppView Web as part of our EHR optimization services we can quickly determine root cause and resolution to performance problems. AppView Web also enables our managed services team to proactively manage EHR infrastructures, increasing physician satisfaction and adoption. This results in more meaningful use of the critical application.”

As more and more organizations transition to Web-based technology for business critical applications, it is necessary for IT teams to have 24/7 visibility from the end user’s perspective, and be able to understand and troubleshoot performance issues wherever they are occurring in the network or the application. When critical business applications such as CRM systems, hosted email, collaboration tools or healthcare and financial record services stop working, so do the employees.

“Poor end-user performance of critical Web applications like Netsuite,, Google Apps and hosted email seriously disrupts business operations,” said Jim Melvin, CEO of AppNeta. “Unlike traditional Web performance tools available today, PathView Cloud with AppView Web enables you to see the performance of these applications within your own network and how they are impacting service delivery to your end users.”

With the newest AppView Web enhancements, PathView Cloud now provides a continuous view of the actual application performance with unprecedented network performance insight. This integrated performance visibility enables IT operations teams to monitor and troubleshoot performance of Web applications more quickly and easily than ever before. With a simple click within the PathView Cloud reporting interface, users can drill down from the overall performance of their Web application into the specific application steps and a detailed view of the Web pages involved to understand the cause of poor performance. AppView Web is compatible with Web applications that require authentication and performs multi-step scripted actions to accurately assess the application performance experienced by the user.
