About PacketTrap Networks:
PacketTrap is favored for its ability to cleanly integrate open source technology with its own library of network diagnostic tools within a centralized network dashboard. PacketTrap's flagship solution, the pt360, provides you with a personal look into your network and lets you complete bandwidth utilization, network discovery and other tasks from a single screen. It includes port scan, SNMP scans, TFTP server tools, reporting capabilities and more. PacketTrap believes most current offerings are point products lacking a central dashboard, integration and correlation. They are complex, expensive and/or poorly supported. PacketTrap is committed to providing solutions that are clean to use and integrated together.
