In today’s technology world, flexible NetFlow reporting tools such as Plixer's Scrutinizer NetFlow & sFlow Analyzer are helping enterprises not only to increase visibility into how much traffic is moving across their networks, but also to see exactly what this traffic is doing, eliminating possible bottlenecks before they even happen.
Today, it was revealed that Plixer International, Inc. was highlighted in the Network Products Guide as Scrutinizer 9.0 has been included within the prestigious list of the 2012 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards in the New Products Category.
Through being able to seamlessly integrate both smartphones and tablets onto corporate networks while simultaneously working with various network tools and devices to ramp up bandwidth in order to complete crucial business-related tasks, it’s no secret why Scrutinizer is receiving such acclaim.
“Today’s hand-held smartphones and tablets are capable of producing almost as much network traffic as a typical desktop PC and—they are consuming corporate bandwidth at an alarming rate,” said Michael Patterson (News - Alert), Plixer’s Scrutinizer product manager. “Exacerbating this problem, are employees using applications such as Facebook) and Words with Friends—that constantly stream data, robbing network bandwidth from business applications such as email and VoIP phone calls. Scrutinizer 9.0 was specifically developed to give network administrators in-depth visibility into exactly what network traffic is being generated by whom and restore the finite network resource to business-related matters.”
Making its debut at CiscoLive UK right around the new year, Scrutinizer 9.0 is a completely Web-based tool boasting multiple capabilities such as: collecting over 100K flows per second (over 60M flows/minute); powering innovative Cisco (News - Alert) Medianet reports that include in-depth network traffic visibility including Smart Logging and Telemetry (SLT), Cisco TrustSec (CTS), Performance Routing (PfR) and Performance monitoring reports (Medianet); vital interfaces with the most Jitter or latency; advanced Citrix NetScaler reports detailing URLs, applications and latency; SonicWALL (News - Alert) VPN reports pinpointing VPN names as well as remote and local addresses; and CrossCheck to provide deeper integration with third-party tools including What’s Up Gold, Orion, SNMPc, Uptime Devices, Nimsoft (News - Alert), etc.
The annual Hot Companies and Best Products awards program focuses on the best of the best products and services within multiple areas of information technology. Winners are invited to take place in a dinner and presentation ceremony in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 8, 2012.
Patterson added, “After dedicating years of development toward our tool ‘Scrutinizer,’ we are proud to be selected as a finalist for the 2012 Hot Company/Best Product award. With the current ‘BYOD’ (Bring Your Own Device) infesting corporate networks, there will be an ever growing need to monitor and control bandwidth utilization as the public embraces smartphones and tablets.”
