In every aspect of life, typically when you do something well, you are rewarded. This sentiment couldn’t be truer when speaking about Scrutinizer, a robust and highly flexible NetFlow-based network traffic reporting and threat detection solution, which was just presented with the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
This vital tool is being implemented by all types of companies across the globe to automatically begin to look at the details of its data traffic within minutes that include source and destination IP addresses. Boasting a user-friendly interface and the ability to be seamlessly integrated into any legacy system, Scrutinizer has the functionality needed to show IT the exact flow for each data log, and even the exact user to stop small incidents before they have the chance to become huge problems.
“It reports on 100 percent of the flows from 100 percent of all NetFlow vendors. We do this by working closely with any vendor who can then choose to export any flow technology, including NetFlow, sflow and IPFIX,” Matthew St. Jean, director of Marketing and Public Relations, Plixer International (News - Alert), recently told me.
Companies are seeing multiple benefits from this offering due to the fact that Scrutinizer can reduce the MTTK (mean time to know) and MTTR (mean time to repair) by helping pinpoint network problems before they start.
Plixer was presented with this prestigious recognition due to its NetFlow-based product offering, demonstrating outstanding quality and delivering exceptional solutions for its customers. St. Jean added, “Plixer is determined to be the best flow reporting tool on the market, this award reinforces the fact that our customers and industry peers appreciate our hard work and effort. This drives our entire company to continue to work as hard as we can to deliver the best product available.”
But just when you thought this solution couldn’t get any better, it does, and is continuously evolving with the NetFlow provider regularly adding new features and functionality. The newest version of the product is slated for release at the end of October, and the organization will continue to debut new reports, enhanced mapping, a report builder and increased capabilities for the Cisco (News - Alert) ASA.
Just last month, Scrutinizer was selected as a finalist in the 4th Annual 2012 Golden Bridge Awards within the IT (Software) category. It was chosen for this particular awards show because it impressed judges with its ability to provide a unique and cost-effective way to protect digital assets.
