We see IT differently.

Learn how our approach to IT management can help you today and tomorrow.

Big Enterprise Vendors Build for Big Enterprise Price Tags.

Unnecessary features and frameworks to justify the cost and complexity to justify professional services…
Is that really what you want?

At SolarWinds, our mission is to make IT look easy.

We do this by arming tech pros like you with powerful, affordable and easy to use software to solve today’s management challenges.

Since day one, we’ve been all about IT management—and that’s all we’ve ever done. SolarWinds was founded over 20 years ago by IT pros who were searching for more efficient and affordable tools to do their jobs. Existing tools were bloated, difficult to install, and incredibly expensive, so we decided to build better tools ourselves.

Today, we are the #1 network management provider in the world (according to IDC), and more than 300,000 organizations across the globe trust their monitoring to SolarWinds. We listen and learn from our loyal customers and use this deep understanding to create the kind of software you really need to be successful.

How we see IT differently:

  • Solve IT management problems the way technology professionals want them solved
  • Make products accessible, easy to find, easy to try, and easy to buy
  • Implement, integrate, and maintain solutions without professional services
  • Serve and scale for the ENTIRE IT market, from small businesses to the Fortune 500®

What does it mean to see IT differently?

While technology innovation has changed the world, the truth is the same big vendors have been running the same complex model of enterprise IT software for the better part of a century. And, new entrants aren’t doing much that’s different. We are different, and have been for 20 years.
