And in that category, I spotted that CloudFlare will launch a monitoring dashboard, providing IT leaders with predictive, historic, and real-time insight around application outages, network issues, and performance slow-downs, the company announced Monday. The cloud-based web security company will deploy three new tools to enhance user experience tracking capabilities — zero-trust fleet status, synthetic application monitoring, and network path visualization.
Why do we care?
This isn’t the SMP category from before, but an interesting move by CloudFlare. Squint a bit, and you can see them being the management console of the cloud. They could very well end up on that list from the previous story.
