Basic Threshold & Anomaly based Security Alerts Notifications

Firewall Analyzer generates alerts automatically and notifies network administrators, when there is a security breach attempt in the network or abnormal traffic. It detects the anomalous traffic behavior. A firewall security alert can be set up to notify administrators/operators by Email or by SMS or can also run a program to initiate other actions (for example: generate an SNMP trap to be directed to Network/Asset management Application). You can also delete the Alert and deleting bulk alert is possible for a particular profile.

Importance of monitoring firewall alerts

Monitoring security and traffic based firewall alert is critical in identifying and preventing network threats in real time. These threats can be both exterior or internal. Setting bandwidth based triggers and security based triggers can be useful in identifying internal and external threats respectively. A firewall alert triggered, security admins can investigate and identify the source and type of threats to the network.

Bandwidth Threshold-based Alerting

Firewall Analyzer can trigger alerts for the bandwidth usage in real-time. Just set a threshold bandwidth and if the usage crosses the threshold, alert will be triggered and you will be notified through the notification mechanisms. This alert helps you to catch the bandwidth hog. With this you can quickly find out the source responsible for the bandwidth usage and take appropriate remediation measures to stop the business hindering bandwidth usage.

Threshold-based Alerting

Alerts can be set up for each device that Firewall Analyzer monitors. You can choose the exact criteria to trigger the alert, set the priority of the alert, and finally set up an email notification or any other notification to immediately notify IT when the alert is triggered.
