Microsoft Exchange encompasses a wide variety of deployment types. Whether full cloud or working together with Exchange Edge or email security gateway services or still on-premise, email services are as critical as they are complex to monitor.

With more than 15 years of experience, Martello Vantage DX™ is the all-in-one solution that ensures the best possible service quality for all of your Microsoft Exchange users, whatever the type of deployment you have.

What Is Martello Vantage DX for Microsoft Exchange Monitoring?

Martello Vantage DX tests Microsoft Exchange services in the cloud, on-premise, or hybrid cloud through a panel of synthetic transactions that reproduces your users’ actions. Now you will know in real-time, 24/7 if users can create a meeting, send an email internally or externally, search in their mailboxes or download an attachment. But because Exchange can be hybrid, it also monitors the service and usage of Exchange Edge servers, email gateways, and authentication systems as well as the health of the network supporting these transactions.
