MCLEAN, Va., June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A happier day is dawning for PC users and IT managers as the universal divide between the two is being spanned by a versatile new technology, Layer8, from OctoInsight Inc. (formerly Logfiller). Layer8's combination of capabilities allows IT to view an entire system in real time and forensically to examine anomalous events and users' access to applications in general. This enables IT managers to deploy analytics tools more efficiently when and where they can be most effective. Layer8 vividly illustrates the advantage of seeing actual data – right from the human interface, as distinct from APM solutions that cannot fully address the blind spot because they rely on machine data. The distinction can mean large financial and security benefits.
From very small to very large, IT-driven organizations are warming to the capabilities of the relatively inexpensive solution provided by OctoInsight's Layer8. This lightweight, easily installed software is system agnostic, non-interfering and readily deployable across a hundred – or a hundred thousand PCs, virtual or physical, within an organization to achieve rapid improvements in efficiency, compliance and security.
This innovation is the latest brainchild of user experience obsessive, Jeremy Barker, who has built some of IT's most effective and successful endpoint technologies. As CTO of OctoInsight, he is gratified by the growing awareness of the need for IT to focus "less on big data and more on the right data. Volume," he said, "is no longer the main point; relevance is." To be most useful in driving prudent decisions, Barker explains, "perfmon data needs the context provided by Layer8. Without complete, real-time understanding of the user experience, IT cannot know what is really happening across the system."
