I don’t remember where we saw it, but there was a report that stated there were 102 unique vendors that released a NetFlow tool in 2008.

I don’t know how accurate that is, but I can definitely confirm that if you go to Google.com and search the key word NetFlow, you’re going to get a LONGGGGGGGG list.

So with a plethora of options and little time to evaluate, what does Scrutinizer offer that might make it worth…scrutinizing? (Sorry, couldn’t help it)

Here’s five compelling reasons to take a look at my product:

Your investment is with a company with NetFlow experience
Plixer International released Scrutinizer in the Fall of 2005. That’s given us five years to examine, learn and understand the way NetFlow works. We ARE NetFlow. So when you purchase Scrutinizer, you are working with people who KNOW the technology.

Existing features were requests by customers, for customers
We are a privately owned company. As a result, that gives us the flexbility to keep an open mind to what our customer base needs from our tools. We always welcome feedback and constructive criticism that make our product better.

Our focus is NetFlow
With all our attention on one technology, there are no excuses to be had in not giving you the latest and greatest features. So with that in mind, we support cutting edge technologies like ASA NetFlow Event trending, NBAR definitions and NetFlow v9. Most vendors do not yet support these functions.

Our Scrutinizer price base is affordable. Our pricing structure is based on the number of devices that export NetFlow as opposed to charging you by the individual interface. This makes us VERY affordable to companies with strong core switching enviroments.

Personable and friendly New Englanders…
I’ve always loved the philosophy of Plixer. See, when I first started with the Support Desk, I wasn’t handed a script. I wasn’t forced into any technical support mold. Instead, we’re encouraged to work with our customers using our own styles.
As a result, our help desk treats you like we’ve known you forever. I’ve always gotten good feedback from customers about our support.

“I really really appreciate the time and support. I wish I could easily find vendors that have such a dedicated customer support team like Plixer’s. The support is top of the line and their dedication to customers is as good as it can get. Thanks for the help and patience!!”

Now that I’ve reread this blog, it sounds like a travel brochure. Really sorry about that.
But I think you get the point…

I hope that with some of these highlights, you’ll find good enough reason to give our product a test spin.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
