Sightline Systems Provides Critical Monitoring for Video Management Systems

FAIRFAX, VA – June 10, 2016 – Sightline Systems, a real-time operations intelligence solution company focused on enhancing end-to-end analytics monitoring, announces Sightline Assure for monitoring VMS servers (Video Management Software). Now Sightline Assure users can easily monitor video recording servers, access control servers, applications, storage devices, network devices, peripherals such as cameras and door locks and more. It also enables continuous monitoring in order to predict performance issues and prevent unplanned downtime and data loss. Assure can restart failed applications, or even alert on a full storage array.

Market partners have eagerly anticipated the updated Sightline Assure 2.0 product as they expand in video and security space. In today’s competitive environment, successful companies will leverage surveillance systems as a means to add security and safety measures internally. Whether they seek to improve customer experiences, catch product flaws before repairs or replacements are needed, or increase safety, surveillance systems also provide manufacturers with previously untapped views into how their businesses operate.

“The new Sightline Assure capability for security systems dovetails into our manufacturing strategy because manufacturers are now using surveillance video for overall security, theft reduction, employee safety, IIoT monitoring and to better understand and optimize the manufacturing process,” commented Brandon Witte of Sightline Systems. “At Sightline Systems, we are committed to the manufacturing industry and see a very bright future where successful companies leverage surveillance data to substantially advance safety and security measures, enhance productivity, increase efficiency and expand overall operations.”

Sightline Assure is poised to provide an unprecedented ability to view systems across the entire stack, from the hardware to the OS, applications, networking devices, storage arrays and more enabling users to proactively diagnose, address, restart and remedy issues quickly. Assure is the perfect solution to ensure mission-critical applications are continuously up and running, with no downtime or data loss and will also provide opportunities for product improvement and data management from the IIoT space.

In the unlikely event of an incident, insurance carriers are now increasingly asking for the analytics data from the servers and their peripherals to examine if they were properly operating. If they were not, how long were they offline or unavailable. Sightline Assure provides this critical data.

Sightline Assure is used by world-renowned global companies to provide full visibility into the entire IT environment without the complexity of traditional IT-industry software. Perfect for analysis and visualization of the data, Assure boils down more than 700 different metrics into easy-to-understand and actionable notifications. Its user-friendly, graphical dashboard highlights all active alerts and provides a comprehensive history for all mission-critical servers, operating systems and monitored applications. Sightline Assure helps users gain more real-time knowledge about the issues, when they began, how long they’ve lasted and if they could be restarted.

Assure is available from a network of resellers or directly at Sightline Systems. Call today (703) 563-3000 to learn more about Sightline Assure or visit https://sightline.com/surveillancesystems/.
