Self-Learning Analytics Enable IT to Spot Anomalies, Improve Service
Levels and Reduce Costs
CA Network Flow Analysis automatically recognizes more than 1,000 applications—quickly giving network managers deep visibility into application traffic patterns and behavior. The solution also makes it easy for network managers to create profiles for their organization’s custom applications.
This insight empowers IT to pinpoint active or potential issues with service delivery, plan and validate resource needs for new applications, optimize utilization of network resources, and avoid unnecessary infrastructure costs.
CA Network Flow Analysis complements these capabilities with patented anomaly detection that learns about the network over time and automatically detects and creates alarms for a wide range of anomalies that can impact performance and create security risks. This empowers IT to proactively safeguard critical service levels while reducing the cost and headaches associated with network troubleshooting.
“Enterprise IT organizations that don’t aggressively evolve their ability to manage their networks from an application-centric perspective will inevitably wind up throwing too many staff-hours at service-level assurance and getting too little in return,” said
T-Systems, a global IT services and consulting company headquartered in
“Application-centric network monitoring has historically required us to associate applications with known ports, but that approach is becoming untenable as more applications use HTTP and dynamic ports,” said
CA Network Flow Analysis leverages Cisco AVC (Application Visibility and Control) and NBAR2 (Next Generation Network-Based Application Recognition) technologies to simplify and integrate the detection and analysis of application-specific traffic. It also harvests data directly from network devices—making it more cost-effective to deploy, maintain and upgrade.
CA Network Flow Analysis has received Cisco’s Interoperability Verification Test (IVT) certification, validating its support for AVC.
“Network performance management no longer means simply reporting top talkers and top traffic loads by port and protocol,” said
CA Network Flow Analysis embraces CA Technologies application-driven network performance management model for managing IT infrastructure, applications and services.
CA Technologies is demonstrating CA Network Flow Analysis this week at Cisco Live 2014 Milan.
