What is LANGuardian?
NetFort LANGuardian is software that analyzes your network traffic. Using advanced deep packet inspection techniques, LANGuardian gives you a unique level of visibility into everything that’s happening on your network, including user activity, file and database monitoring, intrusion detection, bandwidth usage, and Internet access. Try our online demo system or install a 30-day free trial on your own network – you’ll be amazed at what you can find out from your network traffic!
Here are some examples of the details LANGuardian can extract from network traffic:
- Actual web pages accessed
- Traffic volumes
- Files read and deleted
- Mail header fields
- Security events
- Database queries
LANGuardian integrates with Windows and Active Directory, so you get reports that contain real user names instead of IP addresses. And because it works by analyzing network traffic, there are no clients or agents to install, and there is no performance impact on the network.
LANGuardian creates a database of historical traffic data that you can use for advanced network troubleshooting and to meet your auditing and compliance requirements. It gathers all its information from the raw traffic or flow data in your network – it requires no custom hardware, there are no clients or agents to install, and there is no impact on network performance. See the architecture page for a detailed description of how it works.
