Customers using the monitoring center
The face of the FMC is the dashboard - a highly customizable interface designed for the visualization of traffic structure and performance metrics. It features flexible and customizable widgets in order to make it possible for it to adjust to the user’s every need.
The solution can be configured out-of-the-box using predefined dashboards and the so-called configuration templates. They are presets designed to reduce configuration time down to only a few clicks. There are over a dozen basic templates reflecting the most common needs of users (Office 365, G Suite, social networks), including
a number of enterprise protocols (DNS, DHCP,...) and media services.
Once a template is chosen, it automatically creates dashboards, widgets and reports and populate them with data to perfectly fulfil the purpose it was designed for.
The list of templates is continuously being expanded depending on the evolving user needs and IT trends.
Drill-down options are available from anywhere in the dashboard. Every widget, whether it is a traffic chart, graph or a list of alerts, can be displayed in an analytical view with for additional detail as well as sorting and filtering options (e.g. by protocols, time periods, or source/destination IP address). From there, it is possible to continue deeper, down to the level of flows or packets, with the ability to display very specific details, such as the activity of a chosen
IP address, complete with information on active devices, vendors, or flow sources (where available).
The statistics are exportable at every level of the above-described drill-down.
Leverage your existing infrastructure as sensors that generate NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow, jFlow or NetStream from network devices and other data sources such as public cloud platforms, firewalls, virtualization platforms and packet brokers.
Feed your log management or SIEM system with comprehensive logging with context-rich syslog or SNMP messages. Maximize visibility across the IT environment or log events into your ticketing tools automatically.
See which user or hostname has taken part in an attack by collecting authentication system log data and correlating it in Flowmon. Any syslog-enabled authentication service or vendor is supported, including Cisco ISE and AD/LDAP.
Optimise capacity planning, peering agreements and take control over bandwidth usage. With hard data about top users, devices, applications and services you can make effective decisions to save costs on infrastructure and connectivity.
The DDoS Defender comes as a package with full network performance monitoring and diagnostic functionality. This enables tracking latency degradation, traffic structure analysis for capacity planning, traffic engineering and QoS monitoring.
Monitor BYOD traffic to get visibility and control over connected devices. Passive device fingerprinting allows you to identify the device manufacturer, OS and web browser. Extend this with the real user identity (i.e. username or hostname) by using logs from any authentication system to get more control.
Understand network traffic structure, identify top talkers, bandwidth usage, latency issues. All in easily understandable charts and statistics. Use the off-the-shelf dashboard, create your own or shared group dashboards.
The system comes with pre-defined configurations for a variety of network types and automatically adjusts the settings after the initial configuration by using a simple wizard. Then, by managing false positives, maximise the relevancy of detected events.
Use out-of-the-box prioritisation or apply your own severity rules at a global, group or user level. Create custom dashboards for security, networking, IT helpdesk or managers based on their interests.
Flowmon is a single pane of glass for both teams while respecting their needs. A unique combination of early detection, security event warnings and deep visibility into network help NetOps and SecOps teams cooperate on incident handling and root cause analysis.
Reduce downtime and fix performance issues by analysing network traffic metadata collected from your physical, virtual or cloud infrastructure.
"Thanks to Flowmon, we are provided with network visibility we previously lacked. Now we can identify the causes of network issues easier than ever before."
