As the shape and face of the internet continue to evolve, it is becoming increasingly apparent that yesterday’s solutions are no match for today’s challenges. Outdated website monitoring services claim to alert owners to problems, yet even when they give the all-clear signal and indicate that a website is up and running, there can be serious problems that hinder or event prevent visitors from performing common tasks.

With today’s complex web applications, a web server can be "up," yet still not be working correctly due to a bug in the script, backend code, database or the Flash and Silverlight applets. That is precisely why today’s web applications cannot be monitored with yesterday’s website monitoring services. They need the next-generation website monitoring services that, until now, were unavailable.

AlertFox, a revolutionary new website monitoring service currently being offered as a beta version, aims to change all that. AlertFox is an in-depth monitoring service for Web 2.0 and SaaS web applications. Unlike its predecessors that are stuck in a Web 1.0 mindset, only AlertFox can monitor the function and performance of sites that are based on any of the major rich internet applications (RIA), including ActiveX, AJAX, Flash, Flex, complex HTML and Silverlight technology. AlertFox also helps SaaS users monitor their provider’s reliability. As the first service that can monitor web applications with Flash and Silverlight applets, AlertFox is able to monitor sites like YouTube or Google Docs that previously were not candidates for these types of services.

Furthermore, this monitoring runs directly in the web browser, thereby monitoring the true user experience. According to AlertFox founder Dr. Mathias Roth, what differentiates AlertFox from other website monitoring services is that it takes “a comprehensive, holistic approach to website monitoring.” For example, AlertFox records and reports not only the uptime of an ecommerce store, but also monitors all the complicated steps of the complete checkout process (transaction monitoring). This gives website owners confidence that their sites are performing as intended. And, because the transaction monitoring runs in real time in Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, the real end user experience is monitored.

No matter how simple or complex a site is, every serious website owner needs an effective external monitoring service. AlertFox has launched the beta version of AlertFox with these end users in mind, too. Therefore AlertFox not only offers paid full-service accounts for professional users, but also two levels of free transaction monitoring services. Even these basic services include free transaction monitoring sensors, a feature that is offered by no other service for free. AlertFox founder, Dr. Mathias Roth, notes, “Competitors usually price these services at several hundred dollars per month or more. But ours is absolutely free.”
