Major New Features added with Release 14 of NetFort LANGuardian Network Traffic and Security Monitoring Software

  • Simple to install with intuitive new interface for ease of use

  • Redesigned dashboards and reports provide easy-to-read, real-time and historical reporting

Galway, Ireland – April 12, 2016 – NetFort today announced the launch of LANGuardian Release 14, the latest version of its flagship network traffic and security monitoring software.

NetFort LANGuardian provides comprehensive visibility of an organization’s network in minutes. Its unique powerful deep-packet inspection technology can be used on physical or virtual networks of all sizes, for investigating, monitoring, and reporting on network and user activity.

Release 14 includes a simple three-step installation and configuration wizard for even easier setup. LANGuardian’s visual dashboards have been completely redesigned, giving network managers real-time and historical visibility into activity across an organization’s network including users, mobile devices, applications, and virtual platforms.

This new release introduces an integrated search bar to quickly locate favorite reports and critical data. The categorized search results present combined events, flows and metadata in simple and coherent views that provide detailed context to investigate security incidents, network trends and monitor assets. The search results page supports fast traversal of many result categories, making investigations simpler and more productive.

With Release 14, LANGuardian becomes one of the world’s first security and monitoring tools that can run on virtual machines operating either VMWare ESX and Microsoft Hyper-V and process packets from external SPAN ports.

LANGuardian is a passive network traffic analyzer and simply requires a SPAN or mirror port to reveal the true state of any network. It doesn’t require expensive, dedicated appliances or high-capacity storage to keep data over long time periods.

Commenting on the launch, John Brosnan, Chief Executive Officer of NetFort, said: “Our engineering team have placed huge emphasis on the simplicity of LANGuardian v14, in terms of implementation and ease of use. The graphic user interface (GUI) has been completely redesigned to ensure organisations can implement our network traffic analysis solution on any site or segment of the network providing comprehensive visibility in less than 30 minutes. The new intuitive GUI focuses on simple and quick navigation to ensure users can easily get the visibility, detail and context required to really understand what is happening on their network. With a few simple clicks, organizations can now get detailed network traffic analysis without any complexity”.
