Plixer Study: Cloud Service and Mobile Device Netflow Analysis

Whitepaper and Supporting Webcast Demonstrate How NetFlow-Based Forensics Help Improve Cloud Service Performance and Monitor Mobile Device Bandwidth Consumption

SANFORD, ME--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2012) - Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic reporting, today revealed unique insights for taking the digital bandwidth pulse of corporate networks. Entitled, "The Future of Advanced NetFlow: New Elements, End-To-End Visibility and Network Security Threats," the new report and complementary webcast on March 6th and March 7th, detail how leading companies are leveraging NetFlow and IPFIX data to detect network threats, improve cloud-based services and reclaim bandwidth consumed by mobile devices on the network.

"Data is the lifeblood of corporations and computer networks are its arteries keeping information flowing," stated Michael Patterson, product manager, co-founder of Plixer International. "Companies such as Cisco, nBox and SonicWALL are developing new technologies to enable in-depth network traffic visibility via exporting NetFlow and IPFIX data into dramatic, visual bandwidth representations. Plixer's new whitepaper and webcast series will spotlight these new technologies and underscore their value vis-à-vis cloud services, mobile devices and other issues depleting corporate bandwidth."

Readers of Plixer's whitepaper and webcast attendees will gain unique insights regarding:

  • How the proliferation of smartphones and tablet devices on the corporate network has created the need to follow their network traffic patterns to preserve bandwidth for VoIP traffic and other business applications.

  • Measuring the performance of cloud-based services to ensure corporations are receiving contracted service levels.

  • Following a data path through the network to pin point where service degradation occurs and instantly restore Quality of Service (QoS) values.

  • The proper use -- and limitations -- of flow technologies to spot network security threats.

  • Who the hardware vendors are that support leading-edge exports and flexible NetFlow reporting.
