News Facts

  • Today, Entuity announced the immediate availability of a major new product review by the independent Network Testing Labs. The test team reviewed the latest version of the Entuity flagship product, Entuity 12.5. Anyone with an interest in network monitoring and management can download a free copy of the report from the company website (
  • Network Testing Labs noted that the simple fact that all of Entuity's functions can be accessed from within a single multi-function product gave it a substantial advantage over virtually all other network monitoring products. There is no need to run different modules on different computers, each with its own user interface and each requiring its own idiosyncratic set of skills.
  • The test team also found that Entuity 12.5's network object recognition is both sophisticated and accurate. Its federated architecture was described as highly scalable and easy to extend across an entire enterprise. The single-console, browser-based user interface was deemed intuitive, comprehensive and easy to navigate.
  • Since 1989, Network Testing Labs (NTL) has been performing independent technology research and product evaluations. Earlier in 2012, NTL reviewed HP, IBM and CA network management suites. NTL's test system connects myriad types of computers and virtually every kind of network device in an ever-changing variety of ways. NTL experts have written hardware and software product reviews, state-of-the-art analyses, feature articles, in-depth technology workshops, cover stories, buyer's guides and in-depth technology outlooks for Computerworld, BYTE Magazine, Government Computer News, PC Magazine, Tech World, Network Computing, Network World and many other publications. NTL experts have spoken on a number of topics at Comdex, Interop, PC Expo and other venues.
  • Entuity 12.5 encompasses all the requisite, contemporary network management functionality into one product that includes automated, continual discovery of inventory and topology; configuration monitoring; event alerting and root cause analysis (the test team noting that Entuity 12.5 correctly identified the root cause of all the network errors they gave it); elemental and flow-based performance (integrated NetFlow); and extensive reporting with limitless scalability to accommodate even the largest multi-national networks.
  • Entuity is known for its openness and automated data sharing capabilities that integrate with complementary solutions. This collaboration makes it simple to share network data with the rest of the IT environment. Entuity currently supports integrations with products from BMC Software, Cisco, Oracle, HP, IBM, and VMWare along with various CMDBs, central event systems and help desk systems.
  • Entuity 12.5 is currently available for Microsoft® Windows Server®, Oracle® Solaris™ and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® on both physical and virtualized hardware. Other supported virtual environments include Oracle VM Server and VM Manager, VMware ESX/ESXi and VCenter, and Microsoft Hyper-V.

    "Entuity's monitoring, we found, is comprehensive and thorough. It has a sophisticated threshold facility that can easily and precisely express what's normal -- and what's not -- on your network at specific times of the day. We also noted that Entuity does a superior job of managing a network's performance by accurately and realistically representing and monitoring Service Level Agreements."
  • Quote, attributed to Barry Nance, Principal Author of the Entuity Product Review, Network Testing Labs
    "Entuity 12.5's plethora of reports excels at revealing the important information about the network. In our tests, we used these reports to establish baselines, show available and unavailable devices, log device availability histories, produce executive summaries, identify trends and help us spot conditions that could result in future network problems."
