LANGuardian version 12 released
NetFort introduces LANGuardian version 12
NetFort Technologies, a leading developer of innovative software for monitoring activity on computer networks, today announced the general availability of LANGuardian version 12, a significant new release of its flagship network monitoring software product. The new release includes CBAR (content-based application recognition), an enhancement of NetFort’s deep packet inspection technology that recognizes and classifies application traffic based on packet content rather than relying on packet headers and port numbers. However, CBAR is not the only new feature in LANGuardian version 12, which also includes:
- New graphics rendering engine
- Application-aware report drilldown
- Traffic breakdown by application and website domain
- User interface improvements
LANGuardian version 12 use the same agentless architectural model as previous LANGuardian versions, which enables it to provide deep insight into network activity solely by analyzing traffic packets. Because LANGuardian does not rely on agents, it can be installed and connected to a core switch in minutes.
Commenting on today’s announcement, NetFort CEO John Brosnan said “Network engineers today face ever-growing challenges to keep their networks running at optimal performance and they rely increasingly on sophisticated tools to provide them with the information they need, when they need it. LANGuardian version 12 is a major step forward in DPI monitoring and we encourage network engineers everywhere to download our free 30-day trial and see for themselves how LANGuardian can help them monitor their networks more effectively.”
