Sanford, Maine September 18, 2012 – To assist network managers with technology solutions to avoid data breaches, Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based, network traffic reporting and threat detection technology, will continue its nationwide Advanced NetFlow Training™ courses.

The unique training is designed to help companies avoid data breaches by gathering and monitoring data already existing within their networks. New courses will be conducted on October 4th in Tampa, FL, October 9th in San Jose, CA, October 16th in Salt Lake City, UT, and on October 18th in Cincinnati, OH.

Enterprises monitoring network traffic flow receive a detailed account of all their data activities much like a CCTV system for the enterprise. Organizations can easily store weeks or months of flows without spending hundreds of dollars on expensive packet libraries. If security breach occur, the network manager can easily access the information needed to identity the root cause and bring the issue to a halt.

Given the increased threat from mobile malware, botnets, and other harmful intrusions, IT professionals now require new forensic methods to detect, react and resolve these problems in order to secure the enterprise network from possible attacks, states Adam Powers, Chief Security Officer. In addition, Flow collection and threat detection is the best strategy for organizations concerned with the security issues brought on by the increasing amount of personal smartphones and tablets (BYOD) connecting to corporate networks. Monitoring NetFlow traffic patterns is the simplest, and one of the most effective methods, for ensuring proper visibility into how these devices are impacting the network.

The training courses will offer IT security professionals the most advanced NetFlow technology training available, elevating their network troubleshooting abilities to the next level with:
• Hands on training with hardware from such vendors as Cisco, Enterasys, SonicWALL
• Real-time trouble-shooting and investigation on voice, video and data traffic
• Leading edge, Flexible NetFlow exports on performance monitoring, nBar2, performance routing, smart logging telemetry, Cisco ASA NSEL and other firewall exports
