  • Micromuse plans to expand its NetCool/Omnibus product suite with technology that gives customers access to network performance data from any Web browser. Previously, a Unix interface was required. The new NetCool/Webtop is aimed at helping companies remotely moni- tor their networks and provide management views to more people. Micromuse's management offering can collect network performance data from more than 300 devices and management platforms.
  • Start-up Interloci is promising to give companies all the advantages of running Hewlett-Packard's OpenView management platform without the headaches of rolling it out and operating it themselves. This management service provider, headed by IBM Global Services veteran Gordon Garrett, says it will "manage bandwidth and everything on it" on a subscription basis. Interloci's Rent a NOC service comes in two flavors: basic monitoring and monitoring with management. The basic service costs $60 per device per month, with a 10-device minimum. The higher-end service costs $3000 per device per month.
  • Keynote, best known for monitoring Web site performance from outside the firewall, will start giving companies the tools to also monitor Web sites from behind the firewall.
