IT management software provider, SolarWinds, has launched the SolarWinds Observability. This is a fully-integrated, cloud-native SaaS offering offering unified and comprehensive visibility for today’s modern, distributed, hybrid, and multi-cloud IT environments.

SolarWinds Observability helps customers accelerate their digital transformation using powerful machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. This makes it easy to manage extremely complex IT environments. The new SaaS platform offers a single end-to-end solution that provides visibility into private and public clouds. It blends SolarWinds observability solutions for networks, infrastructure, systems, applications, databases, digital experiences, and logs.

SolarWinds Observability helps IT Ops and DevOps teams, developers, and cloud architects improve performance, compliance, and resilience by providing insights that allow them to identify and address issues.

The cloud, hybrid IT, remote workforces and new tech tools have caused organizations’ IT environments to become more complex. As a result, technology professionals now have less visibility into their networks, applications and infrastructures.

SolarWinds Observability solves this problem by providing visibility into the complete environment and expedite anomaly identification and resolution. SolarWinds Observability helps IT Ops, DevOps, and SecOps teams be more proactive in their work. This way, they can ensure that the performance of the business’ services is always optimal and that users get a good experience, no matter how distributed the services are or where they run. The product is available as a cloud-native offering on both Azure and AWS clouds.

“For more than 20 years, we have focused on providing customers with solutions to digitally transform their companies. Today marks a significant moment in our own transformation as we launch our most impactful observability solution to date,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, president and chief executive officer, SolarWinds. “We designed SolarWinds Observability to support every customer, regardless of where they are on their cloud journey, and to deliver simplicity, security, and great value to DevOps, SecOps, CloudOps, and IT Ops professionals.”

“At SolarWinds, we are laying the foundation for autonomous operations through both monitoring and observability solutions built to empower customers to move forward on their cloud and digital transformation journeys,” said Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer at SolarWinds. “With our Hybrid Cloud Observability and SolarWinds Observability offerings, customers have ultimate flexibility to deploy on a private cloud, public cloud, or as a service. We are also simplifying our business model with node-based licensing and tier-based entitlements to support customers of all sizes.”

SolarWinds also announced a new version of its Hybrid Cloud Observability solution. Hybrid Cloud Observability is now enhanced with artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect anomalies in customer data centers. It will help customers migrate from on-premises to SaaS at their own speed.

SolarWinds Observability and Hybrid Cloud Observability are built upon the company’s success over 20 years in network, system, database, infrastructure, IT service management, and application management software. Both products adhere to SolarWinds’ Secure by Design principles and use a rigorous security framework that incorporates multiple layers of security.

The launches of SolarWinds Observability and Hybrid Cloud Observability fulfil the company’s goal of introducing both SaaS and hybrid cloud observability solutions in 2022.

The launch of SolarWinds Observability is followed by the company announcing its new Transform Partner Program earlier this month. SolarWinds Transform helps partners accelerate digital transformation for customers using simple and AI-powered SolarWinds observability solutions.

PALO ALTO, CA – VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a leading innovator in enterprise software, today released the results of its first U.S.-focused cybersecurity threat report, entitled: “Extended Enterprise Under Threat,” based on a survey of 250 U.S. CIOs, CTOs and CISOs.

The research found an increase in both cyberattack volume and breaches during the past 12 months in the U.S. This has prompted increased investment in cyber defense, with U.S. businesses already using an average of more than nine different cybersecurity tools, the survey found.


Data for the report was compiled in March and April 2020 by an independent research company, Opinion Matters, on behalf of VMware Carbon Black.

Key survey findings from U.S. respondents:

  • 92% said attack volumes have increased in the last 12 months, the survey found.
  • 97% said their business has suffered a security breach in the last 12 months. The average organization said they experienced 2.70 breaches during that time, the survey found.
  • 84% said attacks have become more sophisticated, the survey found.
  • 95% said they plan to increase cyber defense spending in the coming year.
  • OS vulnerabilities are the leading cause of breaches, according to the survey, followed by web application attacks and ransomware.
  • US companies said they are using an average of 9 different security technologies to manage their security program, the survey found.

Common breach causes in U.S.

The most common cause of breaches in the U.S. was OS vulnerabilities (27%). This was jointly followed by web application attacks with 13.5% and ransomware with 13%. Island-hopping was the cause of 5% of breaches.

Rick McElroy, Cyber Security Strategist at VMware Carbon Black, said: “Island-hopping is having an increasing breach impact with 11% of survey respondents citing it as the main cause. In combination with other third-party risks such as third-party apps and the supply chain, it’s clear the extended enterprise is under pressure.”

Complex multi-technology environments

US cybersecurity professionals said they are using an average of more than nine different tools or consoles to manage their cyber defense program, the survey found. This indicates a security environment that has evolved reactively as security tools have been adopted to tackle emerging threats.

Said McElroy: “Siloed, hard-to-manage environments hand the advantage to attackers from the start. Evidence shows that attackers have the upper hand when security is not an intrinsic feature of the environment. As the cyber threat landscape reaches saturation, it is time for rationalization, strategic thinking and clarity over security deployment.”

Supplemental COVID-19 survey in U.S.

The latest research was supplemented with a survey on the impact COVID-19 has had on the attack landscape1. According to the supplemental survey of more than 1,000 respondents from the U.S., UK, Singapore and Italy, 88% of U.S. cybersecurity professionals said attack volumes have increased as more employees work from home. 89% said their organizations have experienced cyberattacks linked to COVID-19 malware.

Key findings from the supplemental U.S. COVID-19-focused survey:

  • 89% said they have been targeted by COVID-19-related malware.
  • Inability to institute multifactor authentication (MFA) was reported as the biggest security threat to businesses during COVID-19, the survey found.
  • 83% reported gaps in disaster planning around communications with external parties including customers, prospects, and partners.

Said McElroy: “The global situation with COVID-19 has put the spotlight on business resilience and disaster recovery planning. Those organizations that have delayed implementing multi-factor authentication appear to be facing challenges, as 32% of U.S. respondents say the inability to implement MFA is the biggest threat to business resilience they are facing right now.”

U.S. survey respondents were asked whether COVID-19 had exposed gaps in their disaster recovery plans, and to indicate the severity of those gaps. Their responses showed that:

  • 83% of respondents reported gaps in recovery planning, ranging from slight to severe.
  • 83% said they had uncovered gaps in IT operations.
  • 84% said they encountered problems around enabling a remote workforce.
  • 83% said they’ve experienced challenges communicating with employees
  • 83% said they had experienced difficulty communicating with external parties.
  • 63% said the situation uncovered gaps around visibility into cybersecurity threats.

Said McElroy: “These figures indicate that the surveyed CISOs may be facing difficulty in a number of areas when answering the demands placed on them by the COVID-19 situation.”

Risks directly related to COVID-19 have also quickly emerged, the survey found. This includes rises in COVID-19 malware which was seen by 89% of U.S. respondents.

Said McElroy: “The 2020 survey results suggest that security teams must be working in tandem with business leaders to shift the balance of power from attackers to defenders. We must also collaborate with IT teams and work to remove the complexity that’s weighing down the current model. By building security intrinsically into the fabric of the enterprise – across applications, clouds and devices – teams can significantly reduce the attack surface, gain greater visibility into threats, and understand where security vulnerabilities exist.”

About VMware’s Intrinsic Security Strategy

Security sprawl – too many products, agents, and interfaces deployed across an organization – has created complexity for security management, opening organizations to significant risk. Most security innovation over the past decade has focused on identifying and reacting to individual attacks. Little innovation has focused on hardening infrastructure itself to make it more secure or using the infrastructure to better protect an organization.

The way forward is an intrinsic security approach that combines detecting and responding to threats, in addition to hardening infrastructure. VMware makes security intrinsic from endpoint to cloud, leveraging the infrastructure to provide visibility for apps, users and devices, and combining that with leading threat detection and response capabilities to deliver a unique (and better) approach to security.
