AlertSite Expands Global Web Performance Monitoring Network in the UK and Far East

Web-based companies have a new way to ensure an optimal user experience for their customers in Manchester, UK; Birmingham, UK; Beijing, China; and Seoul, South Korea. AlertSite(R) has added these cities to its global monitoring network, allowing it to track Web performance and uptime, identify bottlenecks, and proactively report and remediate potential issues facing customers with users in these locations, 24/7.

"We understand that Web-based businesses are built on the availability and reliability of their Web sites, applications, and transactions," says Ken Gross, President and CEO of AlertSite. "By adding Manchester, Birmingham, Beijing, and Seoul to our global monitoring network, we meet customer demand to expand our presence in the UK and Asia-Pacific region, and further ensure companies' Web sites are always operational and running at peak performance from around the globe."

With the addition of these four cities, AlertSite brings the total number of data stations in its global monitoring network to 38, located across every major continent. Each new location added to the network increases the accuracy and speed with which AlertSite can identify performance problems and pinpoint whether they are unique to one customer or symptomatic of a larger issue across the geographic region.

AlertSite's DejaClick(TM) uses its proprietary TrueUser(TM) technology to capture the actual end user's perspective of a company's Web performance. The first inside-the-browser business transaction monitor, DejaClick records and collects performance metrics for each step of each Web transaction, every five minutes from its monitoring locations across the globe. These metrics include the availability and functionality of URLs, text, JPEG and GIF images, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, embedded Flash, PDF, digital and SSL certificates, and more. Customers receive regular, detailed performance and availability measurement reports that instantly alert them to any performance issues their Web site or online applications are experiencing, so they can immediately fix the problem.
