News Facts

  • Entuity® today announced that the company's long-standing partnership with BMC Software has advanced to MarketZone Direct, the highest vendor relationship level. BMC will directly sell, support, and license Entuity's Eye of the Storm® (EYE) products to enterprise customers as Entuity Network Monitoring for BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management.

  • EYE's unique InSight Center™ Perspectives explicitly relate business value to reduce costs, improve availability, manage risk, ensure compliance, or achieve sustainability. IT managers can monitor network performance by the services being delivered -- clearly reflecting how the network is delivering business critical applications to its end-users.
