Monitoring and tracking end user behavior on devices, networks, and other company-owned IT resources plays an important role in network security and bandwidth management. If not performed by an efficient network monitoring tool, this continuous user activity monitoring (UAM) can become cumbersome.
Firewall logs help reveal information about infiltration attempts at the perimeter of a network, and on the nature of traffic coming in and going out of the firewall; this means security administrators can monitor user level security threats and traffic usage by optimally analysing the firewall logs. Security administrators need to also set user specific alarms by setting traffic and bandwidth triggers, this is helpful in identifying anomalous activities in the network
The goal of any UAM tool should be to fetch, analyze, and filter out actionable information valuable for network security and bandwidth capacity planning. Firewall Analyzer is a smart UAM solution that provides the following:
With Firewall Analyzer, you can continuously monitor user activity on network, individual user-level bandwidth and security anomalies (User activity monitoring solutions). The employee internet usage monitoring function inFirewall Analyzer helps you to monitor the overuse or misuse of company bandwidth. Apart from this,you also get user-level reports on:
These reports not only help track user behavior, but also help identify internal threats in the network.
Firewall Analyzer can monitor user sessions for both site-to-site virtual private network (VPN)and remote access VPN connections. With details on user session length, bandwidth usage, VPN device, and VPN type, you can closely monitor VPN users for bandwidth anomalies.
Firewall Analyzer fetches the firewall configuration using the command-line interface (CLI) or application programming interface (API)from your firewall devices,and enables you to keep an eye on the changes being made to the network security infrastructure by a specific user. Firewall Analyzer's configuration change management reports precisely identify who made what changes to the firewall configuration, and when and why.
Firewall Analyzer provides prebuilt Admin Reports, which provide information on user-level access and commands executed by a specific user on the firewall. Apart from this, Firewall Analyzer also keeps track of user-level changes to the settings and firewall policies.
With these detailed reports, you can easily monitor user activities from end-to-end. Download a free, 30-day trial of Firewall Analyzer and secure your network.
