Our platform is highly focused on ease of use and deployment, leveraging the same technologies used in IOT solutions. Unlike other network monitoring systems, Nemesis does not require complicated VPN setups, confusing port forwards, or firewall rules to accommodate unnecessarily “heavy” and potentially expensive centralized polling solutions. As a hosted platform, operating costs are reduced as there is no need to install server-based management tools in your datacenter or hire specialized personnel to maintain this infrastructure.
Our distributed monitoring strategy is achieved through the use of low-cost hardware that resides within the target network and securely sends detailed telemetry reports (“tweets”) to our operations centers located globally.
Our monitoring strategy is a one-way communication of diagnostic information using a highly elastic and secure protocol model. NemesisHQ does not send messages directly to devices on your network in the traditional manner and responds only to your designated remote polling engines. This dramatically simplifies the configuration and deployment strategy while also limiting the surface area of attack from outside sources.
There is no need to redesign your network subnets or implement special firewall rules in order to accommodate the monitoring utility. Virtually any network can be remotely monitored in this manner with the deployment of a simple to install, downloadable application service or by employing a low-cost pre-configured hardware appliance.
The detailed telemetry reports (“tweets”) sent to our operations centers contain information on individual devices discovered on the target networks. The collected information provides a picture of the overall health and performance of the devices. Based on this information, we offer users the ability to receive notifications by subscribing to various network events.
When subscribed to an event, an alert can be sent to an administrator through several different delivery avenues that have been integrated into our platform. The integrations include email, SMS, and Slack with more to come. This allows administrators the freedom to choose how best to be notified which results in quickly identifying bottlenecks and recognize when something is not performing as expected to act accordingly.
