Highwinds debuts updated analytic suite, launches preview program

Content delivery network Highwinds is rolling out the newest iteration of its StrikeTracker console this week at Streaming Media East, as well as a new program called "TAP," that allows companies to test drive new software, like StrikeTracker 2.0, before they are released publicly.

The company said StrikeTracker delivers real-time reporting, analytics and content management to Highwinds' CDN customers, and said it had been rebuilt to provide actionable analytics and data visualization intelligence that provides increased user control and at-a-glance statistics shown in real-time charts and graphs, as well as several other functions.

"We've listened to our customers and developed what we think is a unique, game-changing console that far surpasses the capabilities of its counterparts," said Steve Liddell, president of Content Delivery and Network Services for Highwinds. "With the announcement of Highwinds TAP, we're going to allow a select number of customers to access it first." 

Highwinds, earlier this month, announced it secured a $50 million credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank and Comerica Bank to allow it to achieve a more attractive all-in cost of capital and is evidence of the company's impressive financial profile.

Highwinds has diversified its portfolio over the past several years into a comprehensive suite of solutions for content delivery, IP transit, transport, peering, colocation, content storage and IP software.
