New ManageEngine Applications Manager Includes Anomaly Detection Capabilities for Increased Visibility Into Application Performance

Austin, TX, February 17, 2010 - ManageEngine, makers of a globally renowned suite of cost effective network, systems, security and applications management software solutions, today announced an updated version of ManageEngine Applications Manager, the company’s popular server and application monitoring software, now providing Anomaly Detection.

The Anomaly Detection feature alerts businesses to potential threats to application performance, allowing administrators to take preemptive action and preserve performance levels. With the new Applications Manager, administrators first create anomaly profiles using optimum server and application performance metrics as a baseline. Applications Manager then continually collects and compares performance data in real-time against the previously established optimum performance levels. If any differences between the real-time and optimum levels are detected, Applications Manager automatically generates notifications for review by the administrator.

Additionally, the new version of Applications Manager offers integrated application and Storage Area Networking (SAN) monitoring using the ManageEngine OpStor connector. This integration provides application performance details and storage device metrics in a single console, which in turn empowers IT administrators to more quickly troubleshoot performance issues.

And ManageEngine has designed an option to integrate website uptime and performance reports from Site24x7, the company’s hosted website monitoring solution. This integration helps administrators keep track of the performance of company websites from up to 17 different locations outside the data center, without the need for installing any additional software.

“We need to understand how critical applications are performing to ensure we keep our business operations functioning at an optimum level,” said Melissa Bertram, CooperVision, Inc. “ManageEngine Applications Manager allows us to do that.  We can keep tabs on the performance and availability of key applications, servers and databases, from a single console.  It gives us the information we need quickly and easily.  I’m very pleased.”

“Traditionally, most IT administrators have taken a reactive approach to troubleshooting application performance issues,” said Gibu Mathew, product manager, Applications Performance Management Solutions, ManageEngine. “This can be difficult and time consuming at times. If they can shift from being reactive to problems toward a more proactive approach, their overall efficiency will improve and costs will be reduced. The new Anomaly Detection capability in Applications Manager can help them make this transition and realize these benefits.”

ManageEngine Applications Manager is available as a downloadable file for both Windows and Linux platforms. A 30-day fully functional trial edition is freely available for evaluation from the website. Pricing starts at $795 for the Professional Edition; the Enterprise Edition starts at $7995. Perpetual licensing models are also available. The Anomaly Detection feature is available as an add-on and can be used with both Professional and Enterprise Editions.
