Paessler Partners With MachineShop to Bridge the IT and OT Divide
Partnership allows businesses to monitor both IT assets and operational technology
DENVER, Co. and NUREMBERG, Germany, May 18, 2017 - Paessler, the innovative network monitoring specialist, today announced a new partnership with MachineShop, a leading edge computing, OT device and data management company, to deliver a comprehensive visibility and management solution for both IT and operational technology.
Both Paessler and MachineShop have built software that enables businesses to collect, analyze and act on data from networks and devices that are critical to their organizations. Through PRTG Network Monitor, Paessler gives IT admins the ability to monitor traditional computing and IT assets such as networks, routers, switches, servers and virtual machines, while MachineShop gives its users the ability to track operational assets including industrial equipment, medical devices, connected vehicles, physical security systems, HVAC systems and more.
With this partnership, users can deploy both in parallel and enjoy seamless integration and coordinated support, giving them the ability to see, understand and respond to critical events throughout the entire organization. The joint offering delivers deep visibility into IT and OT, including an easy to use dashboard, scalability and API integrations with leading cloud-based software.
"Paessler has always been dedicated to giving IT admins the tool they need to fully monitor their entire IT infrastructure," said Jürgen Thiel, Alliance Manager, Paessler. "Through our integration and partnership with MachineShop, we are now able to expand our offering to cover the entire organization, from top to bottom."
"CIOs and IT admins will increasingly have responsibility for non-IT assets," said Michael Campbell, CEO, MachineShop. "Our relationship and integration with a market-leader such as Paessler allows customers and partners to dramatically expand an already powerful technology management platform."
"The partnership between Paessler and MachineShop gives us a powerful offering to our customers," said Ralf Beck, Head of Software Product Management at German system house Bechtle, a partner of Paessler already for several years. "Visibility and insight are key to maintaining uptime and productivity in today's world, and the ability to identify and fix issues in the IT and OT environment before they become serious problems is critical."
