Meet our newest service

AimBetter now offers an advanced package to monitor the workings of your whole environment, allowing you to selectively test and measure how the various physical and logical components are connecting.

The new Connection feature monitors the state of connectivity to physical elements of your infrastructure (Files/Network) and logical elements (Website/Database). As well, it can keep a watchful eye on outside connections that are essential to your business process, such as financial services (credit card payment sites, credit checking, PayPal etc.), external storage devices, blockchain services and all the other pieces that integrate your enterprise into the wider world.

The main aspects of each feature are as follows:

The Connections monitor is incorporated into the AimBetter dashboard and can be navigated in exactly the same way as all the other features, allowing drill-down investigation of all elements without leaving the screen.  A sample representation of the four features is shown here:

This feature is provided separately from the AimBetter Gold service and requires the AimBetter Windows agent. The Windows agent must be installed on a Windows server that is not also running the AimBetter Gold service.

Selection of the features.

We make the choice of which connectivity measures you wish to use entirely up to you – based on your own needs and past experience. The process is simple – we offer bundles of 50 specific targets of your own choice. You nominate the elements (storage, web addresses, SQL Server databases and networks) and the specific targets you want to monitor. If there are more than 50 targets, simply purchase another bundle. The AimBetter dashboard now combines all of the information from the Connections service onto the central UI, accessible to users via browsers.
