CXO and senior leadership
Your priority is to keep the organization safe in an environment where skilled staff is hard to find, the vendor landscape is complex, and the sophistication of attacks is growing.
Regulatory oversight, industry compliance standards, and best practices all require the definition and implementation of policies and controls to protect information and systems. Scrutinizer allows companies to provide demonstrable evidence of IT compliance with internal governance policies, external regulations, and industry best practices.
Advanced security analytics
IoT, BYOD, and the explosion of virtual machines have all created an unmanageable threat surface. Monitoring for anomalous activity and device behavior—including DDoS attacks—with network traffic analytics is the most effective indicator of compromise. Advanced analytics with proactive thresholds, alerting, and open RESTful APIs enable rapid and dynamic event response.
Proactive threat hunting
Threat hunting is not about chasing alarms and events; it’s about proactively uncovering problems while everything appears normal. To accomplish this, a threat hunter requires access to centralized network traffic metadata. They must have the ability to easily navigate and contextualize that information to understand the bigger picture and uncover the unknown.
Visibility from LAN to cloud
Securing information across the entire application lifecycle requires a cross-functional effort that includes network, security, application, server, and cloud teams. Although each team has unique roles and responsibilities, they must orchestrate their efforts and provide each other with visibility from the end user all the way to the public cloud.
Plixer Scrutinizer, Plixer’s network traffic analysis system, collects, analyzes, visualizes, and reports on data from every network conversation and digital transaction to deliver security and network intelligence. It provides the insight and historical data needed to manage and optimize business operations while reducing risk by detecting and remediating incidents.
Plixer Security Intelligence
Plixer Security Intelligence consumes and analyzes streamed metadata from Plixer Scrutinizer, dynamically combing massive volumes of machine-generated data and automating the detection and remediation of advanced persistent threats. It embeds the very latest in ML/AI technology and applies a crisp use-case-driven implementation that delivers real, trustworthy results in milliseconds.
Plixer Network Intelligence
Through the addition of Plixer Network Intelligence, powered by advanced machine learning (ML), network teams can precisely predict future network capacity requirements. In addition, network operation functions get automated, investigative workflows are improved, network traffic data is exported to external data lakes, and workflows seamlessly integrate with ServiceNow.
Plixer FlowPro probes support application performance management as well as defender capabilities for monitoring DNS traffic. From a single probe, network operations can efficiently manage and optimize the network, while security operations are able to simultaneously lower risk, gain data context, and respond quickly to security incidents.
Plixer Replicator aggregates, replicates, and distributes flow and log metadata exported from the existing network across multiple monitoring tools like SIEM, syslog, and flow collectors. This improves the value of the data while dramatically simplifying adds, moves, and changes and protecting the CPU of exporting switches, routers, firewalls, etc.
Plixer Beacon provides deep visibility and tight control over network endpoints (PCs, mobile devices, VMs, IoT endpoints, etc.), helping you efficiently track assets, strengthen security and compliance, and mitigate risk. With Plixer Beacon, you gain real-time insights into device identity, location, and behavioral data.
Plixer Risk Intelligence
Plixer Risk Intelligence add-on for Plixer Beacon helps you easily evaluate endpoint risks, isolate vulnerable devices, and mitigate threats. The product assesses endpoint risk in real-time, providing a collective risk score for the entire network and individual scores for specific endpoints.
