Designed to deliver agentless performance and availability monitoring, alerting and reporting for over 150 applications and server types, the latest version of SolarWinds SAM will now enable IT pros to resolve server and application issues directly from the product's web console. Remediation capabilities include starting and stopping services, killing rogue processes, and rebooting services, among others.

"SolarWinds SAM's remote pollers help our agility and the additional multi-vendor hardware support means we can rely on SAM as our single monitoring solution," said Sean Ackerman, infrastructure engineer for AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah Insurance Exchange. "It [SolarWinds SAM] paid for itself in less than three months and it only gets better when integrated with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor. Compared to the 'Big 3,' the value ratio is insanely high."

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
