Scrutinizer

Scrutinizer, Plixer’s network traffic analysis system, provides an invaluable source of truth. It gathers flows and metadata from every network conversation to help you detect, analyze, visualize, investigate, and respond.

The network knows—so should you

Security team benefits

  • Reduce security risks

    As a security professional, risk reduction is job #1. Decades of point security products, purchased in the name of prevention, have failed us. Breaches are inevitable. Today, the greatest risk reduction comes from a focus on forensic data and improving time-to-resolution after a breach occurs.

  • Support fast time-to-resolution

    Faster time-to-resolution is accomplished through a faster time-to-know. Remediation can only occur after root cause has been established—and rich contextual data is the enabler. Telemetry data, centrally gathered from across your entire network infrastructure, enables faster time-to-know and time-to-resolution.

  • Deliver contextual forensics

    Access to high volumes of disparate data does not lead to faster response. In fact, it can have the opposite effect. The best context and response comes from the correlation of network-related data with metadata from firewalls, IPS, SIEM, and distributed probes, all stitched together into a single database.

  • 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.

Network team benefits

  • Enrich data context of network traffic

    Better context is achieved by correlating traffic flows and metadata, collected from all corners of the network, into a single database. Rapid filtering and reporting from this rich data deliver deep insight to answer the questions: who, what, where, when, why, and how.

  • Increase efficiency and reduce cost

    The industry’s fastest and most accurate reporting delivers the data you need when you need it most. When users complain, but your SNMP tool’s lights are all green, what do you do? You turn to Scrutinizer to protect customer satisfaction, productivity, and revenue.

  • Improve network and application performance

    Network/application optimization and root cause analysis require true end-to-end visibility. Scrutinizer delivers by collecting, visualizing, and reporting on data that extends all the way from the user to the cloud. It also provides real-time detection of DDoS attacks, minimizing disruption and loss of revenue.

  • Achieve fast reporting and massive scale

    Scrutinizer’s hierarchical design with streamlined and efficient data collection allows you to start small and easily scale to multi-millions of flows per second. Although the network is always blamed, fast and accurate reporting allows the network team to identify root cause and deliver results.
