Plixer International launched Plixer Scrutinize V10, an enhanced version with the ability to push flow collection rates above 100,000 flows per second and correlate the data into easy-to-view traffic patterns for in-depth bandwidth monitoring capabilities.

Scrutinizer is the foundation of Plixer’s flow and security log analysis and reporting architecture. Available as a physical/virtual appliance or Windows download, Scrutinizer performs seamless collection and reporting of NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow and related technologies.

The offering delivers real-time, situational awareness into all applications and their historical behaviors on the network to improve performance and alert IT personnel to potential security threats.

Additional features include:

- Extended Mapping Functionality - Allowing for multiple connections from the same device, animated links and new dependencies.

- New Report Designer - Permits any machine-generated message – including syslogs, traps and Microsoft event logs – to be imported into Scrutinizer for correlation, threat pattern matching and reporting.

- Simplified Configuration - To easily monitor unwanted traffic patterns, such as mail traffic not involving the local mail server or DNS traffic to hosts other than local DNS servers.

- Website Identification - Identify users interacting with Facebook, Words with Friends and other bandwidth-consuming sites.

“When we first announced Scrutinizer, our goal was to create the market’s most reliable network traffic monitoring and analysis system,” said Michael Patterson, Product Manager, Co-Founder, Plixer. “Scrutinizer V10 takes this vision even further with advanced collection, mapping and reporting – making it by far, the most reliable, accurate, and business-relevant NetFlow analysis solution on the market today.”
