Company Joins Forces with Enterasys to Demonstrate Advanced, Mobile Network Traffic Monitoring at GTEC 2012

Sanford, Maine — November 1, 2012— Plixer International, a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic reporting and threat detection technology, today put real-time user monitoring on full display with the launch of Plixer Scrutinizer™ V10.

The enhanced Scrutinizer version now has the ability to push flow collection rates above 100,000 flows per second and correlate the data into easy-to-view traffic patterns for in-depth bandwidth monitoring capabilities.

Scrutinizer is the foundation of Plixer’s flow and security log analysis and reporting architecture. Available as a physical/virtual appliance or Windows download, Scrutinizer performs seamless collection and reporting of NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow and related technologies. The offering then delivers real-time, situational awareness into all applications and their historical behaviors on the network to improve performance and alert IT personnel to potential security threats.

  • Extended Mapping Functionality – Allowing for multiple connections from the same device, animated links and new dependencies.
  • New Report Designer – Permits any machine-generated message – including syslogs, traps and Microsoft event logs – to be imported into Scrutinizer for correlation, threat pattern matching and reporting.
  • Simplified Configuration – To easily monitor unwanted traffic patterns, such as mail traffic not involving the local mail server or DNS traffic to hosts other than local DNS servers.
  • Website Identification – Identify users interacting with Facebook, Words with Friends and other bandwidth-consuming sites.

“When we first announced Scrutinizer, our goal was to create the market’s most reliable network traffic monitoring and analysis system,” said Michael Patterson, Product Manager, Co-Founder, Plixer International, Inc. “Scrutinizer V10 takes this vision even further with advanced collection, mapping and reporting – making it by far, the most reliable, accurate, and business-relevant NetFlow analysis solution on the market today.”

In addition, Plixer will also showcase the product’s seamless integration with Enterasys Mobile IAM at GTEC2012. In a joint NetFlow showdown, the two companies are offering real-time NetFlow traffic monitoring by aggregating and running a replay of the network traffic through Enterasys Mobile IAM. Simultaneously, Scrutinizer’s enhanced reporting will identify users’ IP addresses and spotlight individuals consuming the most bandwidth – a common business disruption.

Continued Patterson: “There’s no way around it — BYOD is making its presence felt on today’s enterprise networks. By showcasing the integration of Enterasys’ Mobile IAM and Plixer’s newly enhanced Scrutinizer V10 we’re showing what’s capable with NetFlow analysis — and how it’s possible to tackle the complex challenges associated with personal device security on corporate networks. This unique network traffic analysis is not a single observation of an individual IP address, but full visibility across the entire enterprise—showing the user, operating system and specific device.”
