Add DataDog integration
A my company we use a monitoring and application performance metrics (APM) tool called DataDog. This allows us to monitor servers and applications for capacity, performance SLA, etc.
It has a very good dashboard interface and the ability to combine metrics across devices and components. We integrate alerts / monitors from DataDog into OpsGenie to notify teams of production issues.
I think it would work out really well if the XG Firewall had build in DataDog integration. Sending in metrics that are available on the Control Center page for example. This would allow Security or Operations people to monitor system usage, load and or blocks / threats across multiple firewall installations. The other main bonus for my would be I can continue to use a single tool (DataDog) for all of my metrics.
We're also using Datadog for all of our metrics and logging. It's been easy to setup integrations for almost all of our integrations with our other services and vendors. I say almost all because our Sophos XG firewalls are the only entities we cannot do this with. @Sophos, please consider this as it is previously mentioned, the increase in adoption of Datadog is clearly showing with the huge number of supported integrations by other vendors.
This is such an essential feature that i cannot believe its unavailable in 2020. Datadog is going hard and even surpassing Splunk if i look around me at IT businesses. More people start using Datadog, less people start using Splunk. (Splunk has an add on for Sophos Endpoint).
