Firebind is a SaaS based monitoring platform that uses active traffic at regular intervals to understand network security and performance. All of our measurements are based on packets we put on the wire. Observations are made by agents that send the traffic and remote agents that receive traffic. Agents can be configured and deployed anywhere in just a few minutes. There are 3 main components to Firebind: the Firebind cloud-based console, “target” agents that are managed by Firebind, and “initiator” agents that are deployed at remote sites.
