FlowTraq Network Monitoring Software Now Shipping

ProQueSys : 27 January, 2011  (New Product)
ProQueSys has announced FlowTraq for network flow monitoring, forensic analysis and network security for risk mitigation
ProQueSys is now shipping its first 2011 quarterly release of ProQueSys FlowTraq, an integrated, full-fidelity network monitoring, security, and forensics flow analyzer that provides fast, actionable intelligence for quick recovery and risk mitigation of security breaches.

FlowTraq is designed to complement and improve existing network operations. It helps IT administrators find data leaks in the network, investigate compromises, and monitor network usage such as bandwidth consumption, applications in use and changes in behavior or network activity that may indicate a problem. NetFlow complements full packet capture solutions and for smaller installations, render them unnecessary.

Commented Vince Berk, CEO of ProQueSys: “No two organizations, networks, or their risks are alike. Understanding a risk means being 80% of the way to eliminating it. FlowTraq is built on the fundamental principle of speed-to-information. We help you identify the source and scope of the problem, and anticipate threats before they occur, so you can be back to business sooner. Beginning with 2011, we have adopted a quarterly release schedule to ensure that our customers have the features they need to handle ever-evolving threats.”

Commented Brad Adwers, an enterprise network specialist with the San Diego Community College District: “We use FlowTraq to find, isolate, and mitigate malicious network activity over five sites, which support 50,000 clients and see 3.5 million events hourly. We can identify users who have been infected by malware or taken over by a botnet and trace the threat to its host within 15 minutes, and mitigate the threat within 20. You can zoom in on problems with an IP address, port, or service, and find any piece of information you need very quickly -- even on historical data, which we keep for 90 days.. FlowTraq is a very powerful and flexible tool that helps us keep our network up-and-running.”

This release incorporates support for VLAN and Autonomous Systems, improved filtering for Alerts, Reports and the Workspace along with a resizable dashboard and an expanded help section.
