Collect and analyze all NetFlow data

Get informed and accurate insight on full-fidelity NetFlow data.

Incorporating flow data into a comprehensive monitoring strategy lets you to make the most of your monitoring investments, while optimizing total cost of ownership. Accurate flow collection is necessary if you truly want to understand your network. In today’s distributed network environments, it can be difficult to collect NetFlow data quickly from different devices. SteelCentral Flow Gateway collects flow data from your standard routers and switches, etc., as well as Riverbed AppResponse and SteelHead devices so you get end-to-end network insights. The flow data the Flow Gateway collects is deduplicated and sent to NetProfiler for enterprise analysis and reporting.
