Plixer and SonicWall NetFlow Analytics Webinar

New Insights on Flow-Based Network and Application Traffic Analytics Revealed

SANFORD, ME--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network traffic reporting, today announced that Michael Patterson, Plixer's CEO, will join Jan Sijp, SonicWall's Director of Product Management, on a complimentary webinar titled, "Lighting Up Your Entire Network: Increasing Network Performance and Improving Employee Productivity Using Flow Based Analytics." The online event will be held Thursday, March 8th, 11am PT (2PM ET) and attendees will gain keen insight on effectively identifying bandwidth usage to prove overall network performance.

"Network traffic bottlenecks are not always evident to the IT administrator. A server may be misconfigured or infected with a virus -- there is no easy way of identifying the problem without full network traffic visibility," explains Michael Patterson, CEO and co-founder, Plixer International. "NetFlow analytics provides complete network traffic visibility, enabling administrators to easily identify bandwidth consumption from non work-related applications or simply help organizations justify a request for higher bandwidth connections. The Plixer and SonicWall webinar will disclose unique procedures to address all the aforementioned situations to quickly restore network operations."

Presenters will discuss the SonicWall Scrutinizer multi-vendor, application traffic analytics visualization and reporting tool as well as its value for measuring and troubleshooting network performance and utilization. In addition, attendees will view Scrutinizer's unique ability to identify all network user activity (applications, web usage, etc.) on a SonicWall firewall.

Scrutinizer is a one hundred percent web-based tool that provides detailed network utilization reports showing the applications and users generating network traffic. Leveraging the software's domain utilization report, even sites with secured connections that use encrypted traffic can't hide from the insight provided by NetFlow and IPFIX collection and reporting. Scrutinizer is designed to peer deep into bandwidth traffic and enable the network administrator to easily see who is consuming bandwidth, what they are using it for and -- immediately restore precious bandwidth for work-related needs.
