The partnership enables Flowmon to leverage Ixia’s network visibility solutions (NVS) as a single source of traffic data for consequent operational and security analytics for their flow-based (NetFlow/IPFIX) network monitoring and security platform.
Ixia NVS generates IxFlow®, an enriched NetFlow data feed, from across the data center, and sends it to the Flowmon solution for analysis. Ixia turns data into insights, via deep packet inspection of application, user device, and other flow details.
“Flowmon and Ixia have teamed to provide customers with a deep insight and understanding of network behavior in one integrated solution,” says Petr Springl, Director of Products & Alliances at Flowmon Networks. “Flowmon’s integration with Ixia’s IxFlow helps customers to maximize the value of their deployments, and truly automate everyday tasks.”
The integrated Ixia/Flowmon solution brings several synergies to customers of both companies, enabling them to extract even more value from investments that have already been realized. It provides the ideal solution for network and security administrators to manage, fix, optimize and secure the network, by delivering:
Efficient access to data needed for analysis, without burdening production network devices
The ability to share data between Flowmon and other tools without standalone collection probes
Deep packet inspection for rich application information and device detail
Identification of network performance concerns, security anomalies, and suspicious behaviour
Bandwidth and user monitoring, as well as capacity planning, to remove bottlenecks
Access to data from both physical and virtual networks, eliminating network blind spots
“By combining our expertise, Ixia and Flowmon will enable IT administrators to identify the users, devices, networks, and applications that generate undesirable traffic or security threats,” stated Scott Westlake, Vice President of Corporate Development & Strategic Alliances at Ixia. “Armed with this information, IT professionals can isolate and easily remove unwanted behaviours, significantly simplifying and improving overall network security for their organization.”
