“As a leading open source network monitoring platform leveraged by some of the largest companies across all industry sectors, OpenNMS is dedicated to delivering a first-class enterprise solution that can be securely deployed to meet the security and compliance requirements these organizations demand,” said David Hustace, CEO of The OpenNMS Group.“Our investment in cybersecurity risk assessments and penetration testing for our products further demonstrates this commitment.

Major updates to Meridian include:

  • Improved security by removing requirements for privileged access.
  • Improved analytics through enhanced flow processing.

  • Enhanced geolocation with IP addresses.
  • An expanded set of REST APIs.

Meridian is a subscription-based platform that includes the most stable and secure features from Horizon, OpenNMS’ community-driven distribution.

The platform features inventory, performance, fault, and traffic management, business service monitoring, remote data collection, BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) support, and application perspective monitoring.

Known for its reliability, adaptability, and scalability, Meridian allows users to customize the platform so it fits the unique needs of their business, according to the vendor.

OpenNMS has adopted penetration testing as a key aspect of our development and release processes for both the current products and forthcoming cloud services.

In addition, The OpenNMS Group is improving its processes to align with the ISO 27001 security framework. This will help to ensure that the appropriate people, processes, and technologies are in place to assess cybersecurity risks and implement the measures necessary to protect, remediate, or recover from those risk events.

The OpenNMS Group is also working towards becoming part of the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system’s Numbering Authorities (CNA) program to augment its CVE reporting capabilities.
