SolarWinds announced important feature updates to Pingdom, its digital experience monitoring (DEM) solution, including all-new filmstrip view and threshold alerting, as well as mobile application enhancements.

“We live in a highly digital world where companies can no longer take a passive approach to the digital experience of their customers — it’s an organization’s most important competitive advantage and makes all the difference between a good or bad customer experience,” said Christoph Pfister, EVP, Products, SolarWinds. “With more than one million accounts, Pingdom is the industry standard in the DEM arena, helping organizations make websites faster and more reliable with powerful, easy-to-use uptime and performance monitoring. With today’s updates, IT and marketing professionals are more empowered than ever to not just ensure websites and web applications are online, but actually fulfilling their purpose in retaining customers; building positive brand image; and ultimately, driving revenue.”

Key Pingdom Updates

- Filmstrip View; With the new Filmstrip function, Pingdom users will be able to easily view the web page rendering using data from the Pingdom PageSpeed test, enabling even greater visibility of how website and web application changes impact the end-user experience. Filmstrip view is now available.

- Threshold Alerting: With threshold alerting, users can select a time threshold after which their site is considered down to receive an alert informing them of the timeout, just as they would for an outage. This allows users to specify how long is too long when it comes to server response times for their website, giving them greater control over how their websites performs for visitors. Threshold alerting is now available.

- Mobile Application Enhancements: With the latest updates to the Pingdom mobile applications for Google® Android® and Apple® iOS®, users will enjoy an updated design, more application customization, and other benefits. These mobile application enhancements for Android are now available, and the updates for iOS will become available in an upcoming release.

- Latin America Probe Servers: Latin America is one of the fastest growing Internet markets in the world. Pingdom has added seven probe servers in Latin America so customers can check their website’s availability and performance from this growing region. Pingdom now has over 100 probe servers located across the globe. Latin America Probe Servers are now available.
