Traditional solutions such as firewall, antivirus or IDS systems are undoubtedly the basis of modern cyber security. But they can only protect the infrastructure against known threats and leave a gap for advanced ones designed to penetrate this kind of protection. Flowmon utilizes advanced network monitoring technology to fill the gaps left by other protection tools and helps security engineers to keep business wealth safe.
Flowmon solution consists of high-performance flow statistics generating probes for the monitoring of all types of networks up to 100 Gbps, powerful collectors to display and analyse network traffic and advanced security modules. The network traffic is monitored with Flowmon Probes, and the collected data is evaluated by sophisticated Flowmon Threat Intelligence using behavior analysis and methods detecting security risks. Security Engineers receive reports of the security risks in their network (detected attacks against computers in the customer network, scanning computers, spam generation, etc.), enabling
them to react promptly and minimize their impact on users. Also, Flowmon Collector can be equipped with the DDoS Defender module that continuously observes and profiles volumetric characteristics of network traffic to create and maintain dynamic baselines to detect DDoS attacks. Security Engineers pre-configure actions triggered in case of an unexpected increase of network traffic, including alerting (e-mail, syslog, SNMP trap), traffic diversion (policy based routing, border gateway protocol, remotely triggered black hole), execution of scripts or mitigation through the specific out-of-band DDoS mitigation system.
Infected nodes in the network
Dictionary attacks to guess a username/password
Increased use of network services
Sending or attempting to send SPAM
Devices in the network attacking the internet
Suspicious communication in DNS traffic
Communication with botnet command and control centers
