Plixer Links Netflow Analytics to IP Host Reputation Data Base

Webinar Reveals Methods to Identify the Most Elusive Network Threats via IP Host Reputation Monitoring for Deeper Network Traffic Behavior Analysis

SANFORD, ME -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Plixer International, Inc., a leading provider of NetFlow-based network management, today announced a new series of webinars for Monitoring Network Performance Degradation, Network Threat Detection and Network Behavior Analysis. The two complimentary webinars, will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 9:00am and 2pm EDT and offer insight on how to monitor for network security threats using IP Host Reputation Monitoring as well as demonstrate the latest NetFlow Telemetry capabilities leveraging flexible NetFlow and IPFIX exports.

"Network Threat Detection of Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) has moved beyond the insight provided by Network Behavior Analysis," said Michael Patterson, Scrutinizer product manager and co-founder, Plixer International. "With its ability to provide alarms for flows connecting to known, rogue IP addresses, IP Host Reputation Monitoring is one of the best new security layers to detect today's most insidious network threats."

Webinar attendees will gain insight on:

  • Why APTs are virtually undetectable when passing through most traditional security layers such as antivirus, firewalls and network behavior baseline systems
  • The types of data APTs are chasing after and why
  • What is IP Host Reputation Monitoring and vendors that offer the solution
  • Detecting APT and the username of the hosts involved
  • Forensic response and the value of Geo IP look ups
  • Additional security layer suggestions

By optimizing the algorithms, Plixer's Scrutinizer more positively identifies nefarious network behaviors. In lieu of triggering immediate alarms, smarter alarms were engineered to monitor behaviors over a few minutes and potentially increase threat indexes. Hosts with higher threat levels, due to numerous alarms, can be quickly identified and isolated, reducing Mean Time to Know (MTTK) and Mean Time to Repair (MTTR). Some of these new IPFIX and NetFlow threat detection methods leverage the Cisco ASA NetFlow Exports, as well as flows from firewalls manufactured by SonicWALL and Palo Alto Networks.

Scrutinizer's NetFlow and IPFIX collector provides:

  • Constant monitoring of individual flows and cloud services for network performance degradation based on packet loss and latency
  • Network behavior analysis by analyzing flows for odd user traffic patterns
  • Monitoring Host Reputation on all flows to and from the Internet
  • Threat tracking on hosts suspected to be carrying an infection

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...
In his keynote at 18th Cloud Expo, Andrew Keys, Co-Founder of ConsenSys Enterprise, provided an overview of the evolution of the Internet and the Database and the future of their combination – the Blockchain.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
