Management Tool Monitors SaaS Traffic

Typically, vendors introduce new capabilities and only later do products capable of monitoring their performance arise. Now with SaaS services becoming so popular, Streamcore has enhanced its management tool, so it provides visibility into those applications.

Typically, vendors introduce new capabilities and only later do products capable of monitoring their performance arise. Now with SaaS services becoming so popular, Streamcore has enhanced its management tool, so it provides visibility into those applications.Streamcore's new feature works with SaaS traffic, such as Salesforce, Citrix GoToMeeting, Google Apps or Microsoft Online Services. For security reasons, SaaS HTTP traffic is always encrypted and exchanged over SSL links, rendering traditional traffic classification processes based on TCP/UDP ports or HTTP URLs useless. In response, Streamcore enhanced its Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine so it can identify SSL-based SaaS traffic and break it into specific classes. Once classified, Streamcore solutions can prioritize SaaS traffic running over corporate links so companies can attempt to maximize their network performance.

Founded in 2004, Streamcore raised $15 million in venture capital to get itself off the ground. The company has tried to carve out a niche in the Wide Area Network performance monitoring space and the company claims that more than 300 corporations now rely on its products. While it has targeted an area of growing interest, the vendor faces competition in the SaaS monitoring space. AppFirst, CompuWare, Keynote Systems, and Neustar have also developed products for this space.
