ActionPacked! Networks™ announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named LiveAction®, a finalist for the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the Network Security and Management category. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.
LiveAction helps takes security to a higher level by providing real-time situational awareness and control. Delivering rich and clear visualizations of the network topology, devices, and interfaces enable users to clearly see the current status the network, including who is on it, who is trying to get in, how traffic is traversing, which applications are running, and what they are attempting to do. LiveAction features and capabilities include:
LiveAction Flow: Offers a network topology view providing a unique end-to-end flow visualization of live traffic across the network. Users can quickly drill down to individual devices or interfaces for more detail on flow characteristics such as IP addresses, DSCP values, byte rates and count. This makes it easy to visualize trouble spots on the network and gain a better understanding of traffic patterns.
LiveAction QoS Configure: Enables IT engineers to create, edit, and apply QoS policies for Cisco® routers and Layer 3 switches on live networks with consistency and confidence. The QoS wizard and built-in templates can be used to apply policies based on Cisco® best practices or use the QoS GUI editor to create and edit policies from scratch.
LiveAction QoS Monitor: Provides the ability to track QoS performance on a per-class basis in real-time or for historical time periods. Engineers can gain a deep understanding of traffic and QoS behavior using LiveAction application (NBAR), class or queuing views. Monitoring and alerting of priority queue drops provides proactive notification of potential voice quality issues.
LiveAction LAN: provides, real-time Layer 2 visualization for networks, including trunk interfaces, port channels, VLAN associations and bandwidth percentages.
LiveAction Routing: Provides real-time routing visualization for Cisco networks that can identify reachability problems, routing loops and asymmetric paths that can affect traffic quality. The module’s policy-based routing viewer/editor provides a high degree of control over traffic policy allowing users to route traffic easily and predictably over user-specified paths.
LiveAction IP SLA: Makes Cisco IOS IP SLA operations easily accessible for generating and monitoring synthetic network traffic to baseline network performance, test policy changes, or proactively monitor key network paths. Synthetic traffic types include data (HTTP, FTP, DNS, DHCP) and voice that can be used to measure latency, loss, jitter, and mean opinion core (MOS) for VoIP. Its highly interactive graphical interface delivers the functionality and flexibility of IP SLA features without the need to learn and use Cisco device command lines.
“LiveAction enables network administrators to identify and mitigate security problems in real-time and perform network forensics on events that have been recorded in its traffic flow and QoS historical databases to help better secure the network and IT infrastructure,” said Dana Matsunaga, President and CEO, ActionPacked! Networks. “We are proud to be recognized as a Global Excellence Award finalist in network security and management by Info Security Products Guide. We believe this recognition further validates our commitment of providing comprehensive manageability into network devices.”
