SUNY Geneseo Network Manager Rick Coloccia found that analyzing Cisco NetFlow packets was the key to network traffic management and monitoring internet use and abuse.

Using Scrutinizer NetFlow Analyzer, he was able to respond to the RIAA’s (Recording Industry Association of America) allegations of students illegally downloading or sharing of music.

“With upwards of 3,100 students calling the residence halls ‘home,’ it’s our job to make sure the data flow is running efficiently. Scrutinizer NetFlow Analyzer allows us to accomplish this with powerful reporting, dynamic traffic analysis, automated features and convenient archiving. We’ve also found the archiving capability extremely useful for forensic analysis.” – Rick Coloccia
