azeti Networks AG, a world-leading manufacturer of innovative high-performance solutions to monitor IT infrastructures and operational technologies, has today launched in the UK and Ireland with azeti Monitoring Solutions UK Limited.

Designed and built in Germany, the Company’s comprehensive monitoring solutions are already being used in more than 35 countries to support a wide range of IT Monitoring with Operational Technology (OT) and Environmental Monitoring (EM) initiatives that help to protect critical technical infrastructures whilst ensuring best practice.

By using azeti’s unique SONARPLEX technology to monitor a wide variety of business-critical systems, companies are now able to manage risks to their infrastructure more effectively and can respond to problems much more quickly. In addition, by automating the monitoring of these vital processes, companies can cut costs by reducing downtime, eliminating penalties for non-compliance, and limiting the amount of human intervention required to monitor and react to any faults.

“azeti is already helping a number of well-known international companies in the retail, logistics, facilities management, IT and utilities sectors to save time and money by providing solutions that allow them to quickly, easily and effectively monitor their IT infrastructure along with their operational and environmental systems,” says Guy Tweedale, Managing Director for azeti Monitoring Solutions UK Ltd. “azeti’s robust technology provides all the tools needed to monitor key performance aspects in a wide variety of business-critical areas, wherever any kind of technology infrastructure is concerned.”

azeti’s monitoring technology is currently being used at the Borussia Munchengladbach football stadium in Germany to safeguard its 65M Euro revenue. The stadium is using azeti technology to monitor more than 45 servers, 250 workstations, a telephony system with 450 extensions as well as CCTV, turnstiles, ticket machines, catering equipment, the ERP system that controls ticket sales and the stadium’s retail point of sale systems.

Since implementing the solution in 2007, the stadium has not only reduced its downtime significantly, but has also decreased the workload for the IT team and has reduced need to hire additional staff.

azeti also has extensive experience and expertise in the area of distributed IT monitoring for medium-to-large businesses, whether companies are looking to augment or consolidate an existing monitoring solution or to implement a new system. azeti’s monitoring solutions are different to others in this marketplace because they provide both IT and OT/Environment monitoring in the same package, they are easier to install and administer and deliver a total cost of ownership that is typically 60%+ lower than the competition.

azeti’s technology can be used to monitor everything from services and applications (such as SMTP, HTTP, SAP, and Oracle) to Host resources (CPU load, bandwidths, ports, and memory) and Peripherals and Active components, such as firewalls, switches, and printers.

The company’s solutions are also being used to monitor cloud parameters such as websites, portals, and SAAS applications, as well as environment systems that govern factors such as temperature, charging levels, humidity, power, airflow, vibration and fuel flow. A wide range of operational systems (such as CCTV , access control, and HVAC) can also be monitored at the same time.

One of the fastest-growing markets for azeti is Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), which is a systematic preventive approach to food safety and pharmaceutical safety that addresses physical, chemical, and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection. HACCP is used in the food industry to identify potential food safety hazards, so that key actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk of the hazards being realized.

azetiMonitoring Solutions UK will employ a channel sales strategy as it expands into the UK, and will support its channel partners by generating leads through the company’s internal and field sales, carrying out marketing and lead generation campaigns, offering pre-sales consulting and after-sales technical support, and also providing both sales/technical training and certification. At the same time, managed service providers will be able to use azeti technology to deliver enhanced service and to reduce costs.
