Technology

AppNeta's PathView Cloud is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) tool that's intended to help enterprises, managed service providers (MSPs) and technology vendors to "assure end-user quality of experience". Enterprises use PathView Cloud to manage application and network performance across different branch offices. This technology has additionally been deployed by managed service providers (MSPs) to monitor their customers’ network performance and generate service revenue.

PathView Cloud is designed for IT professionals to monitor and analyse network traffic, as well as pinpoint the causes of performance issues in applications including VoIP, Video conferencing, virtualization, and additional cloud-based services.

In September 2012, the company released its unified performance management solution called TraceView, after acquiring Tracelytics. According to AppNeta, this service provides Web application performance management across different application layers and environments.
