Flowmon Networks, a global network intelligence company, has announced the general availability of Flowmon 11, ushering in redefined user ergonomy that dramatically streamlines network troubleshooting. Overall enhanced UX helps NetOps teams to keep pace with increasing business demands without trading off performance and reliability of digital environments.

Throughout recent years, organizations accelerated the adoption of BYOD, Internet of Things and cloud-first strategy to be more agile and to scale their business better. Hand in hand with unquestionable benefits, these trends have also brought new visibility gaps, intensifying pressure on organizations that want to preserve the performance demanded of their digital environments. Bringing enhanced actionable insights across all networks, fast deployment and no-brainer setup, Flowmon 11 helps to cover visibility gaps and proactively identify and respond to performance incidents.

“Flowmon 11 is a culmination of our effort to bring NetOps teams actionable intelligence with frictionless deployment, easy setup and instant value,” says Petr Springl, VP Product & Engineering at Flowmon Networks. “Starting with a redesigned dashboard, an integrated workflow enables NetOps teams to find, analyze and fix issues without a hitch and focus on supporting core business objectives. All of this at scale and across on-premise, datacenter, SDN, cloud and hybrid environment in literally one mouse-click.”

Preset Library to Provide Instant Value for Users

In order to minimize the effort, required skillset and time spent on configuring views and dashboard, Flowmon has introduced so-called Presets; a library of pre-defined dashboards for a variety of use cases. Users simply choose the desired preset and get instant access to actionable intelligence, which dramatically streamlines e.g. the monitoring of new services.

Presets reflect the most common needs of Flowmon users, such as monitoring of videoconferencing services, streaming services, utilization of VPM, monitoring of SaaS such as Office 365, G Suite, social networks, as well as a number of enterprise protocols (DNS, DHCP, ...), encrypted traffic analysis and media services. Once applied, Flowmon automatically creates related profiles, report channels, widgets and dashboards.

Amongst other new features, Flowmon 11 delivers simplicity, flexibility and reliability, enabling users to:

  • Shorten MTTR dramatically by easily switching between predefined dashboards for performance, networks, security, application views; available in one click.

  • Get holistic access to information from the whole solution with full customization options via consolidated reporting.

  • Make decisive actions with an at-a-glance overview - New high-level widgets make sure insights to the whole system are at hand, with status reports on infrastructure, application delivery, or the number of security incidents including their severity.

  • Run multi-tenant environments (for MSPs) - Different customers can share one appliance, where everyone sees the data only from the flow source or profile assigned to them.
