Palo Alto based Australian startup ScriptRock today announced the launch of GuardRail, a visibility and control platform for IT environments. With a focus on usability and design that has traditionally been lacking in the configuration management space, GuardRail facilitates DevOps collaboration while helping to maintain IT consistency.

"GuardRail gives customers an unmatched level of visibility into complex IT environments," said ScriptRock cofounder Alan Sharp-Paul. "With GuardRail in place questions of 'What changed?' and 'How is this different?' are no longer mysteries. They can be answered at the push of a button."

GuardRail helps remove a key barrier in organizational DevOps initiatives by providing instant visibility into the current state of IT Development and Production Environments. Costly manual investigations and needless blame games become a thing of the past.

With GuardRail, everyone can scan and compare complex IT environment configurations. GuardRail is free for up to 5 devices on the standard plan. Starting at just $3 per service for continuous configuration monitoring, the platform is offered in three variations: GuardRail Standard, GuardRail Plus and GuardRail Enterprise.

ScriptRock's vision and technology has been backed by prominent tech luminaries including PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel, Seek cofounder Paul Bassat, Postini Founder Scott Petry alongside funds including Citrix Startup Accelerator, StartMate & 500 Startups. ScriptRock closed a $1.2 million seed funding round last year.

Mr. Petry said he was excited by ScriptRock's potential to change the future of configuration management. "Creating a system that gives anyone instant visibility into complex systems, and the ability to difference multiple environments in one place, is the Holy Grail," he said.

GuardRail will be rolled out to limited users in the U.S. and Australia starting from today. Users can join the waiting list to gain exclusive early access. Sign up now at
