For most businesses, their website operations have grown to be one of their top assets. A website not only represents a source of sales for a business, but also reflects their corporate values and brand image. With so much at stake, it's become imperative that businesses closely monitor their website assets. ELayer's Website Monitoring service protects businesses by ensuring their websites deliver a quality user experience that's error free and meets their user's performance expectations. Website Monitoring

ELayer's Website Monitoring service is designed to test a company's website on an ongoing basis from a distributed network of test stations located around the world. Tests are performed at specific time intervals to collect performance data and verify that the website is fully operational.
