Get the best of Both Worlds: A Scalable Vectra Alternative Combining Flow and Packet Analysis

Network threat detection delivered by Vectra leverages full-packet analysis approach, which suffers from poor scalability, does not store data for forensic analysis and has a premium price tag. Flowmon, on the other hand, relies on flow-based technology that scales with your business and allows you to analyze the full packet data when needed.
