The Flowmon advantage is a comprehensive approach to network traffic monitoring that provides actionable insights relevant to both network and security teams.
Flowmon’s flow-based network performance monitoring allows you to monitor bandwidth usage, understand traffic structure, and pinpoint the root cause of network problems in on-premises, edge, and cloud environments alike. At the same time, its network-centric branch of security focuses on detecting anomalous behaviors in network traffic and thus alert you to threat activity in your network, such as ransomware or insider threats.
The beating heart of the Flowmon solution is the Collector. It stores and analyzes network data and provides you with actionable statistics and visualization. With this insight in hand, you can carry out your day-to-day network troubleshooting, bandwidth monitoring, and capacity planning.
While the Collector can process data in various formats from various vendors, for truly rich insights as well as the solution's advanced features, you should leverage the Flowmon Probe as a data source (note this applies primarily to HW Collector and HW Probe). The Probe is a powerful NetFlow/IPFIX exporter that provides L7-enriched network telemetry, and which is the key to unlocking the solution's full potential delivered by specialized modules running on the Collector.
