Performance and accountability of Enterprise IT infrastructure has shifted from an incidental focus to real-time visibility for proactive monitoring and compliance mandates. Network security devices have traditionally posed a blind spot for network monitoring and management solutions by typically restricting output to basic network parameters such as NAT tables and traffic session. Palo Alto Networks breaks this barrier by providing unprecedented visibility of user and application usage information via Netflow, the industry standard protocol for network monitoring. Plixer’sScrutinizer software collects and analyzes Netflow data to monitor and report on overall health of the network.
