Flowmon and Paessler Bring a Symbiosis of IT Infrastructure, Performance, and Security Monitoring

Flowmon Networks

Flowmon Networks, a network intelligence company, has today announced an alliance with Paessler AG, an IT monitoring specialist. The integrated solution brings together broad IT infrastructure monitoring and advanced performance and security analysis to ensure a healthy and secure run of digital environments.

Managing today’s ever-changing IT environment requires a bullet-proof certainty that all assets are reliable, well-functioning, and protected. Enhancing the symbiosis of IT infrastructure monitoring with advanced NetSecOps technology is only a natural step along the path to reaching this goal. Flowmon and Paessler’s PRTG integrated solution brings together the excellence of both worlds.

“We are excited to cooperate with an IT infrastructure monitoring leader like Paessler. Several points of synergy between our solutions promise a great benefit to all who desire their digital environment to be more transparent, reliable, and secure,” says Pavel Minarik, CTO at Flowmon Networks.

Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor monitors IT infrastructure, its availability, performance, and applications as well as cloud services or virtual environments. Using conventional monitoring methods and protocols combined with a powerful API, it has become one of the most widely-adopted solutions for broad IT monitoring.

“Integrating Flowmon with PRTG creates a new level of insights from both solutions, bringing together a broad overview with in-depth analytics, making it even easier for our customers to keep their IT up and running and secure,” explains Steven Feurer, CTO at Paessler. “We found a partner that makes a great fit with Paessler, from a business point of view as well as from a technical perspective,” he adds.

Integration with Flowmon allows feeding PRTG with network telemetry data, unlocking AI-powered analysis, and advanced security features. Performance and security events detected by Flowmon are displayed on the PRTG dashboard and grouped by severity, allowing for a faster response. Moreover, when an unusual incident happens, PRTG alerts the user, who can then directly switch to Flowmon for root-cause analysis.

IT specialists using Flowmon together with PRTG enjoy the following benefits:

  • Know everything: Broad IT monitoring, combined with in-depth flow analysis, joined to deliver maximum transparency.
  • Enhance security: Detect unusual behavior, recognize indicators of compromise, insider threats and DDoS attacks, monitor firewalls, virus scanners, and backups.
  • High availability monitoring: Monitor Flowmon with PRTG and assure availability with PRTG’s included failover.

Flowmon’s network intelligence integrates NetOps and SecOps into one versatile solution. It delivers actionable insights by automatically analyzing network traffic and detecting advanced threats, which eliminates the trouble of sifting through information noise. It allows IT professionals to quickly learn about breaches and performance degradations, understands their context, impact, magnitude, and root cause, and respond to them in time.
