Plixer Scrutinizer

Scrutinizer is at the foundation of the Plixer incident response and behaviour analysis architecture. It’s available as a physical or virtual appliance, or as a Windows download. Scrutinizer performs the collection, threat detection, and reporting of all flow technologies on a single platform. It delivers real-time situational awareness into the applications and their historical behaviours on the network.

Get custom reports in a single dashboard where you can quickly drill down to specific routers, interfaces and user applications to verify traffic details from several geographically disparate locations on your network. Using Cisco’s NetFlow Technology (an IOS software feature found in an ever increasing number of switches and routers), Scrutinizer is able to retrieve the traffic flow data and present it in an intuitive, clear graphical view.

The free download version of Scrutinizer allows you to drill down on 24 hours’ worth of data to get the lowdown on network utilisation. You also have the option to upgrade to the Flow Analytics add-on to get full archiving functionality and historical network trend analysis on data such as Top Applications, Top Hosts, Top Applications per Host, Top Hosts per Application and Top Conversations.
