    A stable and scalable solution allowing for the visibility of and the blocking of threats
    Pros and Cons
    • "The solution is stable."
    • "The licensing price could be better."

    What is our primary use case?

    The solution can be used to continually detect different kinds of anomalies using various methods within the solution.

    What is most valuable?

    The solution is both stable and scalable and we are happy with the product. There is a need to position this solution between the normal security parameters which companies normally have. There is the endpoint security of the firewalls. Usually, the customer is missing the lateral movements within the network. This means that a server which has communicated with a user is not visible within the firewall or endpoint security tools. This is where the solution can be beneficial, to search for and block these kinds of threats. 

    What needs improvement?

    The licensing price could be better.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Flowmon Anomaly Detection System for a couple of years.

    Find out what your peers are saying about Progress Software, Zabbix, Plixer and others in Network Monitoring Software. Updated: January 2023.
    670,400 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution is stable. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The solution is scalable. 

    How are customer service and support?

    The tech support is the same as that concerning the MPN part.

    How was the initial setup?

    The solution is easy to install, although the subsequent configuration entails a certain amount of work. But, this is normal and attends every ADS tool. 

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The price of the license could be lower.

    The licensing for the solution and its support must be purchased separately. The licensing fee accrues only once, but that of support is annual. 

    What other advice do I have?

    We have a single customer who makes use of the solution. It is still pretty new to us, as we initially focused on the MPN part. 

    I would recommend the solution to others. 

    I rate Flowmon Anomaly Detection System as an eight out of ten.

    What is our primary use case?

    We are not the end-users. We are a reseller. There are a lot of use cases, but it is mostly used for detecting performance-related issues in the network.

    What is most valuable?

    It is helpful when there are problems related to performance in the network. If people or users are complaining that the network is slow, Flowmon can easily detect the cause of the network problem.

    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.

    How was the initial setup?

    It is done in one hour. Most of the time, we have two or three people for deployment. They are from the technical side and admin side.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    It works with a permanent license, and then you can pay for the support. For the gold support, you need to pay yearly.
