"I am very impressed with the product that Plixer has developed and I’m looking forward to many deployments together. We are partnering with Plixer to come up with a world class user interface."

Plixer engineering works directly with the software developers at Cisco, Palo Alto, Dell, VMware, Citrix, and several other vendors to ensure that we build support for their unique exports into our core systems. Thorough compatibility ensures that we provide the greatest context around every incident.

Greater Contextual Awareness is gained by integrating with your existing network authentication system. Microsoft Active Directory, Cisco ISE, and most other authentication services are supported. Instantly search and review all the information available on the end system including details by username, IP address, MAC address, and more.

From cloud services to voice and video, narrow in on suspicious behaviors in seconds. We integrated the contextual details and made them available in dozens of advanced Cisco, Palo Alto, Riverbed, and other vendor flow reports, allowing the security and network teams to gain the highest situational awareness. Some of the flow technologies supported include:

  • Application Visibility and Control
  • Cisco ASA NSEL Reporting
  • Cisco High Speed Logging
  • Cisco Trust Sec
  • Cisco Wireless LAN Controller (WLC)
  • Citrix NetScaler
  • CrossCheck
  • Define application groups by IP and ports
  • IP Grouping by subnet, IP, and range
  • Mailinizer
  • NBAR and NBAR2
  • NetFlow-Lite
  • Performance Agent
  • Performance Monitoring (Medianet)
  • Performance Routing
  • Report Designer
  • Smart Logging Telemetry
  • Extensive vendor support for Riverbed, Citrix, Palo Alto, SonicWALL, Exinda, Juniper, Bluecoat, Gigamon, IBM, nProbe, VMWare, Extreme Networks, and dozens of other vendors with proprietary reports unique to their export.

The Scrutinizer system can trigger an alarm for excessive amounts of any exported value. Contact us for an evaluation version of Scrutinizer.


Advanced Reporting allows Scrutinizer to bring greater value to the existing NMS or SIEM (e.g. Splunk). Not only does it fill the gaps, but it can collect much higher volumes of data, correlate it, and display the information in a graphical way that provides deeper insight into the root cause of an application issue or infection that is moving around the network.


  • "For the last 6 years I have been working with cisco’s NetFlow engineering team, customers as well as many network management system vendors. Plixer is one of the industry’s premier thought leaders. It is clear to me that Michael and the team at Plixer are passionate when it comes to anything NetFlow and IPFIX related. This is a company that is on the bleeding edge of NetFlow/IPFIX processing and has much to share with industry."
