Why switch from SiteScope to Catchpoint

Modern architectures require modern monitoring - elevate your monitoring capabilities with Catchpoint

SiteScope: A legacy tool in need of being sunset.

While SiteScope's legacy in LAN/on-prem environments is notable, its architecture falls short in scalability and support for modern technologies and IT needs.  

SiteScope’s siloed monitoring at the source also does not capture the critical user experience perspective resulting from complex architectures, distributed service delivery, or the explosion of SaaS-based productivity suites.


Embrace modern monitoring with Catchpoint

Catchpoint redefines monitoring for the modern interconnected business landscape, addressing the critical gaps of SiteScope. Our Internet Performance Monitoring (IPM) platform is engineered for large-scale, dynamic environments. It excels in Internet Stack visibility, extending beyond internal system monitoring to offer a comprehensive view of the user experience and system performance, enabling you to proactively detect and troubleshoot application performance issues before they impact your business.

Catchpoint vs SiteScope

Let’s compare how Catchpoint addresses common frustrations faced by SiteScope customers.



Comprehensive Observability
Built for the new Internet Stack that impacts all aspects of modern business, ensuring no blind spots in monitoring and swift issue detection and response. 
Made for LAN/on-prem and falls short in offering end-to-end visibility, which is a huge user-identified gap.
Superior scalability, adept at managing extensive network environments. 
Capacity for large-scale monitoring is limited, both in device coverage and data handling.
User-friendly configuration process. 
Intensive setup and maintenance requirements, including laborious template creation.
Robust integration capabilities seamlessly connect with a range of tools for streamlined workflows and enhanced data analysis. 
Users often find it hard to integrate it with other tools, particularly when upgrading. Driver compatibility can make upgrading a challenge.
User Interface
Intuitive and navigable interface with AI-Smartboards.
User feedback suggests that SiteScope’s interface is outdated and challenging to navigate.
Excels in providing actionable reports through multiple test analyses across various layers and standard & custom metrics (including infinite bring-your-own monitor options). 
Reporting features are limited – missing a report-builder, comprehensive dashboards, and export options, all of which hinder valuable insights into application performance.
Data Granularity
Detailed data analysis through real-time, extensive metrics and long-term data retention, ensuring thorough issue identification, faster resolution and MTTR reduction. 
Agentless monitoring of SiteScope often fails to pinpoint root causes of issues due to lack of active agents on devices.
