As businesses nowadays must select a product that can scale according to increasing needs in the not so distant future, it is important to their success that they begin to leverage a robust solution that can efficiently and closely monitor all types of traffic taking place within their network. That is exactly why companies regularly turn to flexible NetFlow, a next generation analyzer tool that can push flow collection rates above 100,000 flows per second, which can also transition that data into traffic patterns.
The overwhelming popularity of NetFlow has brought much prestigious recognition its way. For the third consecutive year, TMC (News - Alert) in conjunction with INTERNET TELEPHONY has touted the solution as the winner of the Product of the Year Award. The Web-based tool boasts a user friendly interface and can be seamlessly integrated into any legacy system.
"If an organization thinks their network was compromised in any way, Scrutinizer can show IT the exact flow for each data log, and even the exact user in order to stop the bleeding," Michael Patterson (News - Alert), CEO and co-founder of Plixer said in a statement.
It was only back in October that NetFlow version 10 was officially unveiled, boasting capabilities ranging from mapping and IP groups to a report designer and much more detailed reports being produced overall. While the mapping functionality powers several connections from one device simultaneously, the revamped report designer delivers virtually any machine-generated message such as syslogs, traps and Microsoft (News - Alert) event logs to Scrutinizer which can be correlated and threat patterns can then be quickly detected. The newest version also offers simpler configuration, which allows users to closely monitor traffic patterns with reduced complexity, and website identification which highlights users visiting sites that include Facebook (News - Alert) and Words with Friends and demand an ultra high level of bandwidth.
Matthew St Jean, marketing/PR, Plixer International stated in regards to the award, “Scrutinizer is an invaluable tool to companies these days who need to protect themselves from a variety of types of cyber attacks while also ensuring their network can handle current demands as well as those in the future. With the robust capabilities offered by this offering, enterprises can rest assured that they will be able to see exactly which actions are taking place on the network and can resolve small problems efficiently before they become major issues.”
