Router/Switch Monitoring & Reporting leverages NetFlow and sFlow flow data from Cisco®, Foundry®, Extreme®, Juniper® and HP® ProCurve™ routers and switches to provide a unified flow-analysis system that combines behavior-based anomaly detection with a traffic reporting and network optimization views. These network performance and optimization reporting capabilities support the needs of enterprise network operations.

User Identity Tracking capability via StealthWatch IDentity-1000 ties network flow data, alarms, alerts and host behaviors directly to the individual responsible for the activity. User tracking overcomes troublesome environments such as DHCP and VPN address pools by associating user login and logout events with hosts using the network. At the click of a mouse, StealthWatch operators can quickly reveal which user is logged into a node connected to the network or enter a login ID to view network activity associated with a given user.
