In mission-critical government environments, downtime is not an option. SolarWinds network management and monitoring software keeps you on top of issues before they become a problem. Our automated network tools analyze traffic, discover and map devices, manage and back up configurations, and monitor performance, including VoIP and network quality—and much, much more. Concerned about security? With our software you can track IP addresses, find and banish rogue devices, and manage firewall rules. And everything can be done from a single pane of glass. With over 300 built-in automated compliance reports and real-time alerts, it’s never been simpler to maintain your IT operations and deliver on your agency’s mission.
Scaling to the Enterprise
As your agency’s IT infrastructure grows and your needs change, your SolarWinds solutions will grow and scale with you. SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console provides a consolidated command center to monitor your entire enterprise network, and offers unified visibility into remote deployments throughout your geographically distributed network. All of the software is designed from the ground up to provide maximum flexibility, easily integrating with third-party systems, and other SolarWinds tools. As you grow, expand your monitoring capabilities with additional polling engines, distribute polling across multiple servers, protect against outages, and enable more users to access the Web console.
Government agencies move to the cloud to improve IT flexibility and responsiveness, maximizing capacity while reducing cost. However, moving to the cloud doesn’t mean you no longer need IT management and monitoring tools. Whether you use the cloud for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), or Software as a Service (SaaS), SolarWinds products give you critical insight into your cloud-based computing, allowing you to isolate and address issues specific to private, public, and hybrid cloud implementations. We not only expand what the cloud can do for you, we help ensure that you get what you’re paying for.
Government IT compliance requirements are complex and ever changing. Agencies must respond to constant data calls for compliance reporting for NIST/FISMA, DISA STIGs and more. SolarWinds tools provide change management auditing and real-time change notification, which allow your IT team to see who made a configuration change and when, so they can quickly respond and mitigate the issue if necessary. SolarWinds’ tools take the guesswork out of configuration and compliance with real-time alerts, over 300 built-in and automated compliance reports, as well as the ability to build custom reports.
Today, the clear direction of government IT management is continuous monitoring of infrastructure. SolarWinds IT solutions serve multiple purposes simultaneously and are able to generate a vast number of customized views from the same streams of data. For example, an IT operations team requires views into data that provide insight on performance, availability, and reliability. On the other hand, a cyber security team needs to look at the same data with a focus on security, compliance, and vulnerability. SolarWinds has software that can "Collect Once, Report Many", which gives IT, information assurance, and security departments the unique functionality they each need, from a single, cost-effective set of tools.
Cyberattacks are a serious threat to our economy and national security. Government agencies need to be able to defend against known threats, respond to new threats immediately, and quickly recover from cyber incidents, whether they are the result of an accident, natural disaster, or malicious attack. SolarWinds software delivers actionable intelligence to proactively identify threats, takes automated action to quarantine and mitigate damage, and analyzes data to prevent future attacks. Our security solutions and continuous monitoring tools correspond closely to the Risk Management Framework (RMF) developed by NIST, and play a critical role in Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) strategies.
Data Center Ops & Consolidation
Federal agencies have been mandated by the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) to shut down and consolidate under-performing data centers, whether your data center consists of a few physical servers and storage arrays, or you have thousands of virtual machines, with virtual switches and multi-vendor storage—we’ve got you covered. SolarWinds offers solutions for complete, scalable data center performance management. Monitor, alert, and report on the health and performance of all physical and virtual servers in your data center, and maintain day-to-day functionality throughout consolidation.
Mobile Workforce & Devices
Today’s mobile workforce demands instant access to information, networks, and applications. This is true for everyone, from travelling IT professionals to the average telecommuter. The need for reliable mobile access is greater still for crisis response teams, government contractors, and warfighters around the globe. SolarWinds supports mission mobility, giving IT professionals anytime-anywhere visibility into network information with browser-friendly access from mobile devices. We have tools that let you track devices, provide remote support, manage Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, and answer the needs of a geographically dispersed workforce, from anywhere in the world.
