Cloud Agents Statistics

Many of you use the MetaFlows Security System to monitor cloud-based instances.  Agents running on the instances send their network packets to the sensor for inspection. We now report the real time bandwidth each agent produces.

The sensors which receive network traffic from agents will now have a clickable button that reveals the agents’ statistics.

Clicking on the button, will open a table with each  agent IP address, the source port being used and the Kbps being sent. These stats change in real time.

Hovering will reveal some passive host discovery information (DNS, MAC, DHCP info, HTTP Agents, Proxies, etc). Clicking on each agent IP will open up an historical report for that IP to see what that instance has been up to in the last day or so.

And, ho, yeah.. we added some links on the dashboard. One can be used to rate us for Amazon (30 seconds survey) and one for Gertner (this will take you 10-15 minutes or so but they give you a $25 gift card). We would appreciate if you could give us feedback.

Thanks!

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Happy Hunting!

The Next Layer of Defense is Here!

The researchers from the article below “…expect their findings to be beneficial to enterprises and other organizations in developing the next layer of defense.”

The next layer of defense is already here. The MetaFlows Security System uses behavioral analysis (along with the traditional signature detection) in order to catch even the stealthiest of Malware. It can even catch things that were in the network before it was deployed!
Read the TechNewsWorld article below to find out more about why, regardless of company size, having the most intelligent network protection is key. Then go to www.metaflows.com to find out how to get the most intelligent network protection. 

An IPS on Steroids

“An IPS on Steroids: MetaFlows Security System”

The secret behind the MetaFlows Security System (MSS) is that it really is a hybrid application. It collects data on the network and acts on malicious activity. So far, this is just about the same as any intrusion prevention system (IPS). But don’t be fooled. This is not just any IPS. Because it is a hybrid application – local and cloud-based – users get a lot of benefit from the cloud piece that are not available from a standard IPS. For example, a typical IPS gets its updates at whatever update interval the vendor determines. The updates usually are based on the efforts of the vendor’s threat assessment laboratory. Not so for MSS.
