|November 27th, 2006||New Feature - HTTP Compression Option for Transaction Monitoring Services|
Customers using Application Monitoring services can now set the monitoring agent to require that the HTTP servers participating in a monitored web transaction send the requested data only in a compressed format. This new transaction monitoring feature will detect problems with server HTTP compression or with improperly compressed data and will notify webmasters about the problem. By introducing this feature, WebSitePulse gets even closer to simulating real end-user experiences and interaction with web transactions.

Now the account administrator can select additional security options for each individual account user:
1) the account administrator can configure a specific user to be able to log into the account only via the more secure HTTPS connection.
2) the account administrator can configure a list of IP addresses for each individual account user from which the specific user can login to the control panel. All login attempts from IP addresses not included in the list will be rejected and logged for administrator review.
