AdventNet Introduces ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer 4

Cost-effective netflow-based bandwidth monitoring tool for network administrators

Pleasanton, California, January 5, 2005 -- AdventNet Inc., a leading provider of affordable network and systems management software for enterprises, equipment vendors, and service providers, today announced the release of ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer 4. NetFlow Analyzer is a web-based bandwidth monitoring tool that gathers NetFlow™ statistics from Cisco® devices to provide in-depth analysis of network traffic and bandwidth usage. It helps administrators understand the impact of application traffic on network performance and determine which applications consume excessive bandwidth. Using this information, administrators can take corrective measures to improve network performance and proactively manage bandwidth availability.

NetFlow Analyzer 4 provides extensive graphs and reports on traffic statistics for analysis across the entire enterprise network. The product also supports custom applications, user profiles, and device grouping options.

NetFlow Analyzer's bandwidth monitoring capabilities enable IT to:

  • Determine bandwidth usage patterns across LAN and WAN links without having to deploy expensive hardware probes

  • Drill down to see the exact host, application, and conversation that caused a network bottleneck

  • Identify underutilized links

  • Generate historical reports that indicate usage trends and help in capacity planning

While bandwidth monitoring has always been essential for any enterprise, market analysts have found that NetFlow-based bandwidth monitoring offers a superior insight and valuable information on the usage of network resources, and network traffic flow.

"NetFlow Analyzer is an affordable solution for bandwidth monitoring. We have been using it to manage our enterprise-wide bandwidth requirements effectively. It was able to correlate the vast NetFlow data exported from our Cisco Routers and provide us with rich reports that showed us the exact bandwidth utilization based on the type of traffic on our network," said Raul Borges, Network Administrator at Praxair. "NetFlow Analyzer is an ideal choice for enterprises which need to proactively detect network bottlenecks and provide a superior network connectivity experience to end-users."

"In-depth bandwidth analysis is essential for enterprises to ensure optimal utilization of bandwidth resources and assist in long term capacity planning. NetFlow Analyzer addresses these concerns by providing a granular view of the entire enterprise network," said Shailesh Kumar, Product Manager at AdventNet.
