Common Goals. One Tool. Streamlined Operations.
Even though they pursue different priorities, NetOps and SecOps share the same goal - ensuring healthy and efficient business services. Forward-thinking leaders know how to break the walls that stand between the two teams and bring out the value they can offer each other, making operations more agile, less risky and more cost-effective. Flowmon is a shared NetOps and SecOps tool that fosters this cooperation.
The traditional view is that NetOps and SecOps are independent silos with different technologies and processes. But in the event of data leakage, outage or performance degradation, it doesn’t matter what the root cause is. What matters is resolving the incident as quickly and efficiently as possible so that business isn’t harmed.
When NetOps and SecOps teams share a dataset and toolset, they gain the ability to make joint decisions and construct efficient security policies that do not affect performance. Moreover, coordination on tool spending and focus on shared data, use cases and technologies brings significant savings on purchase, support, training and staff overhead.

Flowmon collects network telemetry data from a variety of sources including your existing network devices and its own sensors, in which case the process is passive and doesn’t interfere with the network’s performance. The data is then processed using machine learning, heuristics and advanced algorithms. Relevant information is extracted and visualized on the dashboard.
While NetOps teams benefit from insight into network traffic, which is essential for their ability to manage application performance and resolve emerging issues, SecOps layer their security strategy to detect unknown and insider threats (even in encrypted traffic). Together, they use shared data to make decisions on infrastructure design, enforce security policies across the entire IT ecosystem, investigate, assess impact and respond to threats and data breaches. Thanks to Flowmon, informed decision-making and prioritization are always supported by reliable intelligence.
