Paglo (www.Paglo.com) launched today and introduced the world’s first search engine for IT. The free, on-demand service helps turn IT administrators into heroes. For the first time, they can discover all their IT data and get instant answers to their computer, network and security questions. More than 3,500 people and businesses have already registered to participate in the private Beta, which will begin later this month. To reserve your spot to try out the service before it is publicly available, visit www.Paglo.com/getstarted.
Paglo combines multiple, innovative technologies to enable businesses to capture all of the information about their IT environment and make it immediately accessible and useful. Paglo’s uses are limitless and relevant for any IT, operations, or security professional. For example, a user can run a simple search to determine if they are in compliance with Microsoft® software licensing policies and whether their machines have the latest security patches.
Each business has its own Paglo Search Index that keeps the information completely separate and private from every other user. And Paglo takes data discovery to a whole new level -- far deeper than Packetyzer and RogueScanner, two popular network troubleshooting and management tools developed by Paglo’s founders. These tools are widely used and have been downloaded by more than 600,000 people.
“We are fiercely focused on bringing pure and unadulterated search to IT users,” said Paglo CEO, Brian de Haaff. “We believe that search is the best solution for any problem that requires ad hoc investigation of massive amounts of information. A perfect IT search engine will process and understand all of the information about devices, networks, and users. This type of ‘universal search’ is the value that Paglo delivers."
Paglo’s patent-pending technology highlights include the Paglo Crawler, an open source discovery spider that securely gathers IT information and can be easily extended with plug-ins to capture additional data sources. The Paglo Search Index provides unprecedented search accuracy and returns both simple text and rich quantitative data results.
Additionally, Paglo users can keep their fingers on the pulse of their technology infrastructure via the customizable Paglo Dashboard which automatically presents results from their saved queries. Users can create as many unique dashboard views as they like — such as one for operations, one for network management, and one for security. Paglo also ensures that IT professionals benefit from the wisdom of their peers. Queries and dashboard views can be saved and published to the Paglo community for anyone to use. Because the system is on-demand, users can tap the experience of others directly via Paglo and immediately and reliably solve new challenges.
The company was founded in July 2007, after CEO Brian de Haaff and CTO Dr. Chris Waters led the successful sale of Network Chemistry’s wireless security business to Aruba Networks (NASDAQ: ARUN).
Paglo is the world’s first search engine for IT.
