SolarWinds Showcases Updates to Orion Platform at GITEX

Dubai, UAE – December 07, 2020 —SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, is participating at GITEX Technology Week. SolarWinds is being represented at GISEC by one of their key Partners, Spire, at Booth H7-D40, and through an online exhibit via the GITEX 2020 virtual event platform. The company plans to exhibit the latest updates to its SolarWinds Orion Platform.

Key benefits of the SolarWinds Orion Platform include centralised monitoring and management of a company’s entire IT stack, from infrastructure to applications, and scalable architecture reaching across physical, virtual and cloud IT environments. In addition, the Orion Platform offers a simple, secure, and integrated experience.

Businesses across the Middle East and North Africa continue to evolve their IT systems to cope with the demands of supporting a remote workforce and process automation will be a crucial weapon in their arsenal. A major challenge for businesses in the coming months will be bringing their IT systems up to speed in a cost-effective manner, enabling them to accommodate remote access and work from home initiatives in the long term.

“Organizations of all sizes have complex IT environments that make managing IT challenging. We design our products to be powerful and easy to use, and many are built on a common technology platform, the SolarWinds Orion Platform, enabling companies to implement our products individually and grow as needed. They’re highly scalable, and our integrated systems performance data is combined from multiple parts of the tech stack to provide a single, unified, application-centric view and experience,” stated Sascha Giese, SolarWinds Head Geek.

IT teams are redoubling their efforts to meet the increased demand for remote network access while simultaneously maintaining the highest standards of online security. Since March 2020, SolarWinds has seen an uptick in demand for its range of IT security solutions—particularly those designed to monitor VPN connections—as IT professionals around the globe strive to keep their infrastructures alive and support employees working from home.

“In the second quarter of 2020, everybody tried to make everything virtual and online to provide WFH capabilities, which entailed a lot of changes to their IT infrastructure. Those changes had to be made immediately—almost overnight. Things that usually would have taken months of proper planning had to be implemented almost overnight. What we’ve seen now is companies trying to fix the mistakes they made during those initial implementations. This is quite challenging for IT teams because budgets are tight right now, so they have to be quite creative in how they get things done,” added Giese.

SolarWinds is one of the only vendors in the world with such a broad portfolio for monitoring and managing IT. SolarWinds solutions deliver visibility through all layers and deployments—including hybrid and multi-cloud deployments—and help IT professionals simultaneously make sense of data coming from the network, infrastructure, and applications.
