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

Multi site management — ExtremeCloud provides centralized management of multiple virtual or physical sites, consolidating management information from across the entire network for a global and consistent experience. New services or policies are defined in just a few clicks and quickly deployed across one or more locations, or simply in a specific sub section of your network, making it simple for you to test and deploy globally new application driven services. Security is built into the entire fabric of ExtremeCloud and the devices that it manages.

During the manufacturing process of cloud-enabled network devices, a unique certificate is installed along with the cloud discovery services to prevent man in the middle attacks and preserve the authenticity and confidentiality of communications between your wired or wireless network device and ExtremeCloud. Web-based centralized management — ExtremeCloud provides network administrators with a centralized web-based interface designed to easily manage both infrastructure and services. This graphical interface allows network administrators to configure, enable, or disable each device or group of devices.
