ManageEngine Launches Configuration Management for NetFlow Analyzer at Cisco Live Mexico

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the beta launch of the network configuration management add-on for NetFlow Analyzer, the real-time bandwidth and security analysis software. By integrating network configuration management with traffic analysis, NetFlow Analyzer provides admins with a single console that lets them view traffic patterns, modify network configurations to optimize bandwidth utilization, and track changes to critical network devices. A demonstration of the new add-on is available at

ManageEngine is demonstrating NetFlow Analyzer with the new network configuration management add-on and exhibiting the rest of its security portfolio in booth K2 at Cisco Live Cancun 2014, being held Nov. 3-6, 2014, at Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort, Cancun, Mexico.

“Simple configuration errors can bring an entire network to its knees, rendering business-critical apps inaccessible and resulting in revenue loss,” said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. “Keeping tabs on the ‘who, what and when’ concerning those changes is important for maintaining healthy SLAs on bandwidth and app responsiveness to end users. But most organizations adopt traffic analytics software to just gain intelligence on traffic patterns and leave configurations to manual methods. With the new integrated configuration management module, we provide a seamless experience for network engineers to bridge this gap.”

NetFlow Analyzer Covers Configurations

With its network configuration management add-on, NetFlow Analyzer lets network admins understand the priorities set for apps and reconfigure those priorities without logging in to the end router or switch. Admins can now also periodically backup configurations, and if a faulty configuration is applied, admins can rollback to an old configuration with just a few clicks. This saves time and helps streamline bandwidth to critical apps in real time.

The new add-on also helps network admins react to advanced attacks such as DDoS, zero-day attacks, scans and probes in real time. NetFlow Analyzer provides visibility into such attacks as they happen on the network and notifies the admin. Now, admins can quickly block the IP address or reconfigure their network configurations instantly and protect the network from attack.

Additionally, the network configuration management add-on lets network admins easily compare configurations to quickly gain knowledge of the changes made. It also allows them to create compliance policies and receive alerts if they are violated. The new add-on is powered by DeviceExpert, ManageEngine’s network change and configuration management software.

In addition to the new add-on, NetFlow Analyzer gains new mobile apps that let customers access traffic information from their iPhones and Android devices. The new mobile apps offer inventory, alarms, traffic graphs and dashboards similar to those found on the NetFlow Analyzer web client.

Pricing and Availability

The network configuration management add-on for NetFlow Analyzer is available immediately as a beta download at The iPhone and Android mobile apps are available now. The iPhone app can be downloaded at, and the Android app can be downloaded at

Pricing for NetFlow Analyzer starts at $2,000 for 25 interfaces.
