Vallum Software announces the release of a new Halo Application for Alerting

Atlanta, GA, August 3, 2016 – Vallum Software today announced the general availability of the Halo Alarm App designed for generating alerts on data points collected by the Halo Manager solution. The Halo Alarm App is free to download and use, and can be installed to any installation of the Halo Manager solution.Halo Application Logo 200x200

The Alarm App is easily installed and configured, and adds functionality to Halo Manager to allow for the generation of threshold or value alerts from any data point collected by the Halo Manager solution, and any installed Halo Apps. The Alarm App supports all existing and future Halo Apps, and has a powerful parsing capability, which allows it to select values out of rows and columns of collected data. The alerts are generated by a simple parameter structure that utilizes Boolean logic, and can be sent via email or Syslog.

The Halo Alarm App is another Halo App, in a growing list of Apps, focused on monitoring network infrastructure and software components. It will be included as a standard feature of the Halo Manager solution in the next release.

Vallum Halo Manager is a network monitoring and management (NMM) solution with a revolutionary decentralized architectural approach that addresses the cost and complexity issues that are prevalent with existing NMM vendor solutions on the market. Halo Manager’s architecture eliminates the need for a complex central server install that is typical of other NMM solutions, and it is customizable with the installation of specialized applications called Halo Apps. Halo Apps can have a nearly endless array of capabilities, and add functionality to the Halo Manager solution in a modular manner. Halo Apps are easy to install and allow end users to select the functionality they need, avoiding the cost and functionality bloat found with other NMM solutions.

The Halo Manager solution and Halo Applications are free to download and try for 30 days with no functionality limitations. The Halo Manager includes a dashboard that is viewable on any standard web browser, device discovery, and one Halo Polling Agent that is capable of monitoring up to 256 IPs. Halo Applications range from free to a nominal licensing fee based on their complexity.

“The Halo Alarm App represents an important step forward in the functional capability for the Halo Manager solution. The ability to easily create an alert on any of the vast number of data points collected by the Halo Manager solution, and any installed Halo Apps is an enormous leap forward in functionality. Not only is the capabilities of the Alarm App exciting, but it is also exciting that it was developed and tested in a couple of weeks, which is unheard of in the network monitoring and management space,” said Lance Edelman, Vallum Software Co-Founder and CEO. “The ability to quickly develop and remotely deploy Halo Apps with just about unlimited functional capabilities will allow the Halo Manager solution to keep pace with the changing requirements of organizations in a manner that other network monitoring and management vendors are not capable of.”

Vallum offers a cost effective straightforward approach to licensing with tiered pricing by subnets or groups of 256 devices/IP addresses. This simple licensing model is a departure from traditional vendor pricing structures (cost per seat, cost per device, and cost per agent) that have prohibited many organizations from acquiring network monitoring and management solutions.
