The core BlocWatch team has been building enterprise monitoring solutions for new technologies for the past 20 years. We have founded and successfully exited 4 separate companies during that time – the most recent being CloudCheckr. We are now applying the lessons that we have learned to the blockchain space.
As such, BlocWatch provides an enterprise ready blockchain monitoring platform for permissioned and unpermissioned blockchain implementations. Specifically, our solution provides complete visibility around operational metrics, smart contract status, user configurations, and more. We offer pre-built and user defined activity alerting along with a library of best practices to ensure improved blockchain security.
As part of our development process, we have spoken with hundreds of blockchain executives and developers from around the world. The feedback that we've received validates the need for providing transparency, security, analytics, and compliance on blockchain network. We continue to see new blockchain use cases weekly and are excited to offer a solution that will support blockchain adoption worldwide.
BlocWatch vs. Open Source Monitoring & Analytics Tools
Institutions require comprehensive monitoring to fulfill operational, security, and compliance mandates. Failures and compromises in production systems can easily cause millions in losses. As the below comparison shows, both Hyperledger Explorer and Quorum Cakeshop are open source tools that offer basic blockchain monitoring. BlocWatch, however, offers a far broader and deeper solution that has been tailored to enterprise monitoring requirements.
If it is critical that your blockchain network is running 24/7 we strongly recommend that you consider using the BlocWatch platform. Schedule a demo or sign up for a free trial today!
