Today’s IT departments are faced with the complexities of convergence of networks, increased data and netflow volumes, heightened security vulnerabilities and threats, legislation and compliancy issues, rising network costs, network performance demands and stringent budgets. Open and complex networks are become increasingly more difficult to manage and accountability and traceability of usage has become a necessity. The organization’s survival and competitiveness is reliant on the IT Dept’s success in largely mitigating the risk to the network, its performance and its data through audit.
The ability to perform netflow forensics for security at a granular level enables the organisation to discover breaches of security that occur in real-time or those that occur over a prolonged period (data leaks). Large networks, generate copious amounts of netflow data that needs a high degree of visibility in order to be scrutinized and reported on by a limited number of people. While standard security devices (firewalls, intrusion detection systems, sniffers etc…) may already in place, they lack the ability to record and report on every transaction. Recording every transaction requires ability to scale.Therefore, network netflow data analysis, auditing or forensic reporting has been (until now) expensive and difficult to achieve and manage.
NetFlow Auditor is a market leading and award winning netflow analyzer software solution, which enables management to accurately audit network netflow data augmenting network security and business intelligence. It records netflow data at the micro level and assists in discovery of real-time and ongoing security breaches and alerts administrators where other systems fail.Customers have reported satisfaction in being able to identify, highlight trends, baselines and act on irregular traffic movements and applications and provision services more appropriately. The ability for NetFlow Auditor to capture granular traffic over a long term provides complete network visibility and has enabled customers to identify spurious traffic.
NetFlow Auditor is a 24 x 7 automated end-to-end solution that simplifies network netflow auditing. It starts with unique patent pending scalable collection methodology and storage and offers granular and flexible reporting processes culminating in the delivery of business intelligence and security forensics.
