SolarWinds, a provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, is making enhancements to its web performance monitoring products, including releasing updates to both the SolarWinds Orion Platform-based Web Performance Monitor (WPM), now WPM 3.0, and its SaaS-based SolarWinds Pingdom solution.

The web performance monitoring product updates deepen the company’s commitment to meeting the needs of technology professionals operating in on-premises IT environments inside the firewall as well as hybrid and public-cloud environments.

The new features in the updated version of WPM 3.0 and Pingdom meet the needs of both IT operations and DevOps teams in unprecedented ways.

With the improved functionalities, technology professionals managing every type of environment can monitor website availability and performance, ultimately creating an overall exceptional user experience.
