Plixer NetFlow Analysis Tool Captures Product Of The Year Award

 Scrutinizer 9.0 Recognized for Exceptional Innovation

Sanford, Maine August 9, 2012 Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic reporting and threat detection technology, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Scrutinizer 9.0 as a recipient of a 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

Scrutinizer is a one hundred percent web-based tool that provides detailed network utilization reports showing the applications and users generating network traffic. Leveraging the software's domain utilization report, even sites with secured connections that use encrypted traffic can't hide from the insight provided by NetFlow and IPFIX collection and reporting.  Scrutinizer is designed to peer deep into network traffic, enabling the network administrator to easily see who is consuming abnormal amounts of bandwidth, what the bandwidth is being used for and quarantine the offender -- immediately restoring precious bandwidth for work-related needs.

Commenting on the award recognition, Plixer International's CEO and Co-Founder, Michael Patterson, stated, "Having Scrutinizer recognized as Communications Solutions Product of the Year is further proof of the integral role NetFlow traffic monitoring solutions play, in not only providing network traffic analysis, but also its role for providing network security and addressing BYOD issues in the workplace."

In response to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) security needs, Plixer recently released its whitepaper titled, "Meeting the demands of BYOD while Maintaining Security."  The complimentary network security paper is based on real-world data, offering IT professionals a best-practices resource for enterprise-wide support and proper implementation of a BYOD security plan.  

"Plixer was chosen to receive a 2011 Product of the Year Award for creating outstanding advancements in communications" said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Scrutinizer 9.0 has proven benefits for its customers and provides ROI for the companies that use it. Congratulations to the entire team at Plixer. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year."

The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership, and thoroughness that are characteristics of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to the market from March 2011 through March 2012 were chosen as winners of the Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

The 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award winners are published on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions Websites.
