Network Critical, the industry leader in visibility solutions with integrated tapping functionality, today announces the newest tool in achieving the Compliance Oriented Network Architecture, the Drag-n-Vu element management system. This new element management system incorporates sophisticated algorithms to address the complexity of filters in dense visibility fabrics, a capability needed to automate the compliance security, reporting and auditing functions.

Network Critical, the industry leader in visibility solutions with integrated tapping functionality, today announces the newest tool in achieving the Compliance Oriented Network Architecture, the Drag-n-Vu element management system.

Almost all of the network packet brokers currently available from leading vendors require the use of a combination of CLI commands and clunky, error prone user interfaces to configure them. Network Critical has taken a huge step forward with the introduction of a new drag-and-drop user interface, Drag-n-Vu, which makes the time consuming and error prone ways of the past, history. Using the new SmartNA-X platforms, you can now configure TAPs, aggregation groups and complex filtering requirements in seconds instead of the hours required by competitive products.

Traditionally, products have user interfaces that require configuring rules for passing traffic between ports with interacting filter based criteria that are time consuming, complicated and error prone. With just five interacting filters, a customer may need to work out and configure up to twenty six more rules to send traffic to the right monitoring tools. The Drag-n-Vu element management system removes that headache, as users never see the internal rules for passing traffic. The software figures out the internal details automatically using proprietary algorithms developed and copyrighted by Network Critical.

Early adopters and field trial customers that have seen and used the new Drag-n-Vu element management system rave about its capabilities, ease of use, and the amount of time, and therefore money, that can be saved by using it to configure and manage a wide array of security and management tools.

Customer feedback has included the comments: “This allows me to do in seconds what other products take forever to do and with a minimum chance of making any costly mistakes either,” and from a leading network operator, “This is a game changer in terms of the ease with which my team can now manage the large number of security and monitoring devices on my network without requiring specialized skills and training.”

No more pouring through dusty user manuals or trying to find online user guides. No more trying to locate the one or two people in the company that know how to configure the network packet brokers. Finally, Network Critical is offering a user interface on the Drag-n-Vu element management system that is truly child's play to learn and use.
