We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is an open platform, so in terms of integration, we are quite happy. We can integrate it with other SNMP solutions. We can also integrate it with security solutions, such as a SIEM solution.""The artificial intelligence and automatic detection system in Flowmon Solution are perfect for every, type of customer, such as government and commerce."

More Flowmon Solution Pros →

"We didn't experience any bugs.""One feature I found most valuable in Plixer Scrutinizer is the very extensive reporting. Reporting is very flexible, though sometimes you need a little bit of support from Plixer Scrutinizer to create custom-made reporting in a very short time. Reporting is a very strong feature of the product.""The most valuable features of Plixer Scrutinizer are its ease of use, accessibility, and UI."

Cons
"If there was better visualization in Flowmon Solution it would be good.""It would be helpful to have more details about the monitoring of the infrastructure. It should have support for SNMP. This is something that is currently not there in the product."

More Flowmon Solution Cons →

"We couldn't get it set up properly.""From what I understand it is that the solution is not very scalable in a high volume traffic environment with a large number of flows.""There was a price lift because previously the product was privately owned, and now there is some external capital in the organization, so pricing could be lower, though, for Plixer Scrutinizer, there is almost no competition at this price point."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It works with a permanent license, and then you can pay for the support. For the gold support, you need to pay yearly."
  • "The price of the solution could be better."
  • More Flowmon Solution Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Currently, the license for Plixer Scrutinizer is subscription-based and at a yearly fee. The price would depend on the amount of traffic you pull in. For example, there are several blocks from a 10K flow, a 40K flow, and a 100K flow, and based on the number of devices that you receive the flows from, that's the license, and it is not a per-interface pricing model, so that is a very strong, very competitive pricing feature of Plixer Scrutinizer. Licensing for the product is also not based on the number of storage, compared to some competing products that are priced based on the amount of storage you need, particularly based on the retention and the amount of data. Plixer Scrutinizer licensing is based on the device, and it's more in the direction of $10,000 because, with just $1,000, you don't have anything."
