Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 12, 2006
InternetPerils, Inc., a leading provider of automated products for Internet Business Risk Management, today announced the availability of PerilSnap, a powerful, yet quick and easy way for users to examine the Internet near their IP address for anomalies, nonredundant paths, and other potential risks to their network’s performance.
Now in beta, a simple PerilSnap is free and provides a snapshot of the user’s Internet “neighborhood.” More complex PerilSnaps--- including PerilSnapPlus and PerilSnap Deluxe, both available on a subscription basis--- can examine multiple IP addresses and even provide animations that clearly illustrate the health and performance of the user’s network neighborhood over time. Users can sign up for PerilSnap at http://www.internetperils.com/products/perilsnap.php
For the first time, Internet users, whether from the home office or enterprise, can now easily review a snapshot of the Internet that directly impacts the quality of their network’s IP performance. PerilSnap visualizations represent nodes in the nearby Internet neighborhood: client computers, servers, and routers. PerilSnap’s color-coding also show the relative health and performance of the user’s nearby network by illustrating speeds of connections between devices including the latencies, packet loss, and non-responding nodes along the network.
PerilSnap helps visualize heretofore invisible perils and anomalies in the Internet, giving risk managers in IT and finance departments as well as small business owners who rely on e-commerce, the ability to identify, track, and analyze episodes of adverse performance and service interruptions beyond the firewall and thus beyond their immediate and direct control.
PerilSnap is the first InternetPerils product based on the company’s patented Gap Analysis of Internet Networks (GAIN) platform and PerilScope visualization technology that visualize and display logical topologies and performance of the Internet from any number of abstraction levels, to reveal perils as small as a non-redundant link to anomalies as large as natural hurricanes as well as cyber-hurricanes.
