Technology developed by NetFlow Logic allows users to effectively solve a broad spectrum of network management and security issues that network operators are facing today.
NetFlow Optimizer (NFO), is a powerful real-time processing engine for any type of flow data, including NetFlow, sFlow, J-Flow, and IPFIX.
As flow data is very voluminous it is not practical to use the data directly translated from binary to text or syslog for analysis and visualization. Therefore, NetFlow Optimizer can generate multiple syslogs, each optimized for a specific purpose. NetFlow Optimizer (NFO) uses patented streaming technology which allows processing of flow data up to 10 times faster than competitive products. It can simply translate flow data 1:1 for storage and forensic analysis purposes to satisfy compliance requirements or it can produce optimized and enriched NetFlow records which can then be visualized and processed by other systems.
NetFlow Optimizer enhances the capabilities and value of existing SIEM systems and log analyzers.
Adding flow technology to your network monitoring and analysis tools has never been simpler or more affordable.
NetFlow Optimizer delivers a critical component for complete network visibility and expands the use of your existing log analyzers and SIEM Systems from vendors like Splunk, Sumo Logic, etc.
NFO processing engine provides aggregation of records from multiple flow data and log sources, converts it into standard syslog format, and filters to eliminate redundant data. This allows you to save money on storage hardware and license fees for visualization software, which is often based on the amount of processed traffic.
NetFlow Optimizer provides real-time network monitoring and enables advanced level of operational intelligence and security for virtual and physical networks.
NFO delivers the critical component for complete network visibility by extracting valuable data from NetFlow, enriching it with additional information, and making available for correlation with other machine data. It is complementary to traditional network security solutions that can be bypassed by unknown malware and well prepared targeted attacks. When used together with Security Information Event Management (SIEM) systems, it provides an effective solution for detecting advanced security threats such as DDoS attacks, botnets, insider threats, data leakage, etc
