ExtremeAnalytics

Intelligent application visibility — Purview application identification uses deep packet inspection (DPI) to provide a rich analytical framework and granular controls for private (SAP, SOA traffic, Exchange, SQL etc.) and public Cloud (Salesforce, Google, Email, YouTube, P2P, Facebook, Twitter, file sharing, etc.) applications essential to your business. This enables IT and other Lines of Business to determine which applications or websites are being accessed, the consumed bandwidth and other statistics on business critical applications versus non business critical applications. Proactive security and compliance — provides IT with the ability to monitor and restrict application usage and website access based on specific parameters.

For example, a known web browser version that poses security risks could be restricted. Purview is the very FIRST and ONLY — patent pending — solution that bridges Network/Security Management with comprehensive Business Analytics. With better network planning — understand the impact of deployed applications on the network. This provides the data necessary to plan network expansions before user complain.

ExtremeCloud
