Use Datadog Session Replay to view real-time user journeys

When developing large, customer-facing applications, it’s paramount to have visibility into real user behavior in order to optimize your UX. Without a direct view into what users are actually doing when navigating your app, it can be difficult to reproduce bugs and understand how aspects of your frontend design are causing user frustration and churn. With Datadog RUM’s Session Replay feature, currently available in beta, you can watch individual user sessions using a video-like interface.

Test internal applications with Datadog's testing tunnel and private locations

As part of your monitoring and testing strategy, you may run tests on different types of applications that are not publicly available—from local versions of production-level websites to internal applications that directly support your employees. Testing each one requires leveraging tools that allow you to verify functionality across a wide range of devices, browsers, and workflows while maintaining a secure environment.

Monitor your CI pipelines and tests with Datadog CI Visibility

Datadog CI Visibility, now available in beta, provides critical visibility into your organization’s CI/CD workflows. CI Visibility complements Datadog’s turn-key CI provider integrations and the integration of synthetic tests in CI pipelines to give you deep insight into key pipeline metrics and help you identify issues with your builds and testing.

Troubleshoot faster with process-level app and network data

When responding to an incident, you need to quickly find the scope of the issue so you know which teams to notify and which parts of your system to investigate next—before your end users are affected. But as multiple processes use resources on each of your hosts, and interact in unexpected ways, it can be difficult to know exactly what is causing an issue—especially if those processes are running off-the-shelf software.

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.

Key takeaways from the U.S. executive order on cybersecurity

On May 12, 2021, President Biden signed an executive order calling on federal agencies to improve their cybersecurity practices. Following the recent SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline attacks, it is clear that security incidents can severely impact the economy and civilians' day-to-day lives and that cybersecurity needs to be a high-priority issue. We encourage you to read the full executive order.

Visualize live dependencies with the Request Flow Map

Modern applications are often composed of countless distributed services, which makes it difficult to understand dependencies, isolate bottlenecks, and remediate errors. Datadog APM helps you tackle this complexity by allowing you to search and analyze 100 percent of your traces in real time. But without a dynamic view of your architecture, it can still be challenging to contextualize a specific request without getting lost in the details.

Resilience, DevSecOps, and other key takeaways from RSAC 2021

For the first time in its 30-year history, the 2021 RSA Conference was a virtual-only event, and not in its usual time during the spring. But, with 20,000 registrants joining for the various sessions, it was a testament to this year’s conference theme of resilience.
