Catchpoint announces the world’s first complete solution to monitor and protect leading online businesses from BGP incidents in seconds

Company news: Catchpoint’s Internet Performance Monitoring platform helps IT teams identify and mitigate BGP incidents, including hijacking attempts and routing issues, with the world’s widest network of monitoring points in the industry relying on real-time BGP monitoring.

Catchpoint, the Internet Resilience company, releases significant improvements to its industry-leading network experience solution. These improvements include network accessibility, engineering and traffic routing improvements, as well as comprehensive monitoring of SASE, VPN, and the entire Internet stack. This makes it easier for IT professionals to detect issues before they affect the business.

The latest release includes a wide range of improvements to Catchpoint’s Network Experience solution, including:

  • The largest surveillance network in the world With more than two thousand distinct points around the world. This includes BGP’s widest global coverage With over a thousand monitoring points worldwide from over 400 ASNs and support for both IPv6 and IPv4 global real-time data:
    • 143 peers from CatchPoint
    • 388 peers in the University of Oregon Route Views project
    • 744 RIPE NCC RIS peers
  • Improved BGP Smart Panel To identify incidents and root causes faster and with fewer clicks to improve MTTR. The new Smartboard allows IT teams to investigate BGP peer event data across specified timeframes, view ads and withdrawals, and then drill down to the details of each event. The result is faster and more efficient troubleshooting.
  • Improved BGP dashboard and result metrics See the health of the networks you rely on at a glance. The information provided includes accessibility, hijackings, peer visibility, group checkouts, RPKI status, and BGP data by region.
  • Discover the kidnapping path Via the updated Control Center library, which stores a list of clients’ ASNs. The BGP overview dashboard identifies any declared prefix from unexpected ASNs, so IT is immediately alerted to potential hijackings.
  • Test the general availability of the network / network / node-to-node To continuously monitor network availability and performance, including instability, latency, and packet loss. This ensures a high-quality network experience always.
  • Traceroute improvementsincluding Path MTU and TCP MSS, features for more effective network path visualization and troubleshooting.
  • Custom DNSSEC screen It certifies the accuracy of IP addresses with a cryptographic signature and ensures that the answers given by the DNS server are valid and reliable.

View and identify all BGP issues from a single dashboard

All of these capabilities are available via the Catchpoint platform. Catchpoint, the market leader in Internet Performance Monitoring (IPM), provides deep insight into every aspect of the Internet stack that impacts your business. Only Catchpoint offers the breadth and depth of IPM solutions to help make IT functions, network operations, and SREs easier and ensure Internet resilience with fewer resources.

“With this release, Catchpoint is helping our customers detect BGP issues with more confidence and in less time. We are now providing more detailed, real-time information from three distinct BGP peer sources that we can gather from over 1,000 BGP peers worldwide. By comparison, our closest competitor monitors less than 100 peers and provides data that’s at least 15 minutes old. That 15-minute delay is for life when you’re dealing with an issue like BGP hijacking, and you don’t know where your data is going!” said Matt Izzo, Vice President Chief Product Officer at CatchPoint Corporation.

CatchPoint customers agree. “We were never able to monitor accessibility in these details before using the Catchpoint solution. Now we can tell if the issue is with BGP advertising, routing, or something else rather than blindly trusting our partners that everything works as it should,” Andreas said. Lons, Chief Technology Officer, Team Internet.

“The world’s top websites rely on Catchpoint as their primary platform for monitoring, detecting, and mitigating BGP incidents, as well as any other incidents in their internet portfolio,” said Dritan Solioti, CTO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “Today, all businesses depend on the Internet to survive, and really no other platform comes close to what we have developed over fourteen years of dedication to monitoring Internet performance.”

The hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling companies to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control you can get from on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce network latency.

Research firm Markets and Markets has forecast that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from $38.27 billion in 2017 to $97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud convergence provided by co-location facilities can enable you to take advantage of high-bandwidth, low-latency connections to the cloud as well as provide a robust connection back to your local corporate network.
