Introducing multi-factor authentication in Datadog Synthetic tests

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an increasingly popular method for securing user accounts that requires users to provide two or more pieces of identifying information when logging into an application. This information can consist of unique verification links or codes sent to the user’s phone or email address, as well as time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs) generated by authenticator applications or hardware.


How to set up synthetic monitoring at scale with Grafana Cloud

While unit testing and integration testing can give you insight into the individual functionalities of an application, “at times you need some sort of monitoring or testing mechanism which also simulates a user’s behavior to test how the application would work or look to an actual user in the world,” says Grofers Software Development Engineer Yashvardhan Kukreja. That’s where synthetic monitoring comes in.


That One Time Using APM Bit Us

At Catchpoint, our mission is to provide customers with actionable data that will help them reduce MTTR and maintain a positive digital experience. We measure "from where the users are" to ensure the data reflects real end-user experience. As someone that's part of the Catchpoint on-call chain, this is extremely important to me. I do not want to be woken up at 2 AM because a server is misbehaving, only to find out that the application failed over gracefully and no users were impacted.

Synthetic Monitoring of Amazon WorkSpaces

Amazon WorkSpaces enables you to provision virtual, cloud-based Microsoft Windows or Amazon Linux desktops for users. WorkSpaces eliminates the need to procure and deploy hardware or install complex software. You can quickly add or remove users as your needs change. Users can access their virtual desktops from multiple devices or web browsers.


Datadog Synthetic Monitoring now supports cross-browser testing

Your users access your application from a wide range of browsers, which have their own implementations of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. For instance, many modern JavaScript features such as Promises and Arrow Functions are unsupported by some browsers. These inconsistencies can lead to missing elements and malfunctioning workflows that affect some—but not all—of your user base.
