ManageEngine Introduces New Version of NetFlow Analyzer; Provides Greater Visibility into Network Traffic Patterns and Application Performance.
Austin, Texas, June 30, 2009 - ManageEngine, makers of a globally renowned suite of cost effective network, systems, security and applications management software solutions, today announced the release of the latest version of ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer, a traffic analysis and network forensics application. Featuring completely customizable administrator dashboards, site-to-site network traffic monitoring and volume-based usage billing, the new NetFlow Analyzer is designed to meet the needs of enterprise IT administrators as well as service providers.
ManageEngine will showcase the new application at Cisco Live!, June 27-July 2, Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, booth 219.
With NetFlow Analyzer, IT administrators create management dashboards allowing them to monitor those parts of the network infrastructure that are most critical to them, depending upon the individual administrator’s role and the business’ priorities.. A single dashboard may incorporate multiple widgets, each pulling information from various data sources, including NetFlow/sFlow. The result is a comprehensive view of network usage and performance metrics without the need for complex searches and drill-downs. NetFlow Analyzer comes pre-bundled with more than fifty such widgets, making dashboard customization exceedingly easy right out of the box. And because NetFlow Analyzer collects reports from numerous network segments and devices, and presents them in a single view, it is far simpler and faster to identify the root cause of any issue, reducing the mean time to repair (MTTR).
The new NetFlow Analyzer’s Site-to-Site traffic monitoring capability helps businesses track network traffic patterns between separate physical locations, ensuring business-critical applications have the right amount of bandwidth allocated for maximum performance. This level of understanding is vital for the day-to-day performance of existing applications, as well as for planning infrastructure growth. It is also key to IT departments that chargeback business units for the volume of network traffic generated, and for service providers who bill customers based on volume and speed.
"NetFlow Analyzer has been a great tool for our traffic analysis and capacity planning," said Kenneth P. Huntsberger, director, Information Technology/Systems, Groundwater and Environmental Services (GES). "The addition of a customizable dashboard and single click email has made it possible for us to view priority information faster and troubleshoot quicker. “The ’Site to Site monitoring’ feature makes the traffic analysis between specific locations easier too. I'd gladly recommend this solution to anyone who is looking for a better ROI on a traffic analysis tool."
"ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer 7.5 is designed to meet the needs of IT departments that are operating leaner while being held to the same high standards as ever," said Sridhar Iyengar, director, Product Management at ManageEngine. "DSCP-based alerts, customized information delivery, faster troubleshooting, and single click reporting all add up to provide unmatched visibility and traffic forensics capabilities Administrators can look to ManageEngine to continue bringing about ever greater capabilities in NetFlow Analyzer, including Network Behavior Anomaly Detection (NBAD) and MSSQL support in the not-too-distant future."
