New Capabilities Make NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition the Only Network Management Application to Natively Support Cisco NetFlow, Cisco NBAR and Cisco CBQoS
Austin, TX, October 21, 2009 – ManageEngine, makers of a globally renowned suite of cost effective network, systems and security management software solutions, today announced NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition version 7, a new generation of the company’s popular traffic analysis and network forensics application, designed for organizations managing hundreds or thousands of networking devices and links across a geographically distributed business.

In addition to greater scalability, NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition V7 also boasts a number of new, advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities, including the ability to report on Cisco CBQoS – or Class Based Quality of Service – monitoring. Cisco CBQoS allows administrators to establish Quality of Service policies to ensure business–critical network traffic is allocated the greatest bandwidth and resource availability. With the new, integrated reporting on Cisco CBQoS, ManageEngine becomes the only vendor to support Cisco NetFlow, Cisco NBAR and Cisco CBQoS out–of–the–box.
NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition V7 also collects and aggregates sFlow and jFlow data, as well as any data formatted in compliance with the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) protocol, providing administrators with unmatched insight into the performance of their network elements and applications.
Should the volume of network traffic exceed, or the performance of a specific element or application fall below, an administrator’s pre–defined threshold, NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition V7 automatically generates an alarm and a notification email is sent. This functionality can be customized to send alerts only during business hours.
Each network operator can create their own web–based management dashboard, which can be customized to display only the network hosts, devices, segments and applications monitored by that individual. Performance reporting is also completely customizable by using the above criteria, as well as by establishing a specific reporting time period. Reports may also be set to deliver performance data in real time.
The advanced functionality and scalability provided by NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition V7 is complemented by the fast return–on–investment and ease–of–use for which ManageEngine is known. NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition is completely web based; the application can be downloaded directly from the ManageEngine web site and with no hardware probes or appliances to install, the software can begin demonstrating its value immediately.
"We are confident NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition 7 will quickly become a must–have for network administrators who today are challenged with providing optimum network performance while facing a growing workload and strict budget," said Jayakumar Karumbasalam, product manager, ManageEngine. "We are certain NetFlow Analyzer Enterprise Edition 7 will be as enthusiastically adopted by IT administrators as its predecessors were."
