The StrikeMon Solutions Suite is a set of tools and methodologies that assists in implementing the critical functions of your organization. These include automatically monitoring your systems 24x7x365 and alerting the appropriate resources to unauthorized or unexpected system changes or access. In most systems, developers as an afterthought design instrumentation, monitoring, alerts, thresholds, logs and diagnostic tools. Companies now realize that their systems are in maintenance mode most of the time. The lack of visibility to vital metrics is exceptionally expensive, in addition to increasing overall security risk. StrikeMon can assist in eliminating outages, slow downs, archive failures, security breaches, and other costly and disruptive surprises. A StrikeMon certified organization has direct and comprehensive guidance in the development of appropriate system alerts, monitoring tools, and other core maintenance tools. The result for the enterprise is up to a 50% decrease in overall resource support cost.


  • Eliminate up to 50% of operational time and cost losses due to outages
