Why Choose Site24x7?

The one-stop shop for all your IT monitoring needs

Site24x7 is part of ManageEngine's comprehensive suite of IT management products, serving as the one-stop shop for all your IT management requirements—including IT service management (ITSM), unified endpoint management (UEM), and security information and event management (SIEM). Also, because ManageEngine is a division of Zoho, Site24x7 inherits the rich culture of continuous research and development as well as the customer-first approach.

Mature infrastructure monitoring

Centreon's NetFlow, VMware, and Nutanix monitoring are plugin-based. Meanwhile, Site24x7's monitoring is more mature and out of the box, with a vast pool of features and intuitive widgets. Our cloud monitoring also offers best practice recommendations for cost and resource optimization.

Built-in log management capabilities

Site24x7 collects logs from multiple applications and servers, then centralizes and analyzes them. With support for over 100 log types by default, Site24x7 simplifies log discovery, management, and troubleshooting.

Full-fledged digital experience monitoring

While Centreon's digital experience monitoring (DEM) extension focuses on the SaaS user experience, Site24x7 offers a broader spectrum of DEM that includes websites, internet services, full-fledged synthetic transaction monitoring, and real user monitoring for websites and applications.

A SaaS-based MSP offering

Our MSP plan offers the benefits of the cloud to MSP admins, giving them the flexibility to manage their customers' accounts with ease.
