Latest Version of Network Traffic Monitoring Strengthens IT Defenses from Malware — Beyond Firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems and Antivirus Solutions

Kennebunk, Maine – June 21, 2013 – Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic monitoring and threat detection technology, today announced the availability of Scrutinizer™ V11.
The new version is enhanced to improve the ability to identify cyber threats, offers refined reporting tools and introduces flexible licensing, cost and distribution options for organizations of all sizes. Plixer will showcase Scrutinizer V11 at the upcoming Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, June 23-27, 2013, Orlando, FL (Booth #747).

“We have entered an era where we have to assume that the network is always infected,” said Michael Patterson, Founder and CEO, Plixer International. “Scrutinizer V11 has been enhanced with a threat heat map which empowers security administrators to more quickly identify hosts with the most abnormal communication behaviors.”
Scrutinizer V11 simplifies visibility of the threat landscape by placing hosts in a threat heat map. Hosts high and to the right are exhibiting the most abnormal behaviors.

Scrutinizer V11 features include:

  • Extensive Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC) reporting support
  • Support for the Catalyst 2960-X NetFlow-Lite export as well as the Cisco Wireless Controller flow exports
  • Support for iPhone and iPad and all tablets (trends rewritten to work without flash)
  • Autonomous System reporting based on Internet IP address
  • Username mapping to IP addresses via Microsoft active directory, Cisco ISE or other authentication system
  • Threat heat map in the alarms tab. Hosts high-and-to-the-right get your attention.
  • Fast search in status tab to quickly find devices
  • Scheduled SSH connections to Cisco ASA to download ACL names instead of using HEX codes found in NSEL.

Scrutinizer V11 is available as a physical or virtual appliance or as a windows download, and offers flexible licensing and pricing options for organizations of all sizes. The network security solution can scale beyond 30 days with available disk space, and requires just one appliance for front and back end.
