LAS VEGAS and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 29 -- INTEROP -- Mazu Networks, the leading provider of behavior-based, enterprise-class performance and availability solutions, today announced the latest release of Mazu Profiler to meet the market demand for a performance management solution based on advanced behavior analytics. Through Mazu Profiler, IT operations teams can dramatically improve their ability to manage their application performance, WAN, and security and compliance initiatives, thereby ensuring the constant delivery of critical business services. Mazu Profiler makes this possible through enhanced features including: response-time management; WAN optimization reporting; and access control list (ACL)-based mitigation.
"Incorporating behavior analysis into existing network and systems management tools provides necessary context to performance events," said Vanessa Alvarez, analyst, enabling technologies enterprise, IT infrastructure, Yankee Group. "Mazu Profiler's ability to correlate flow, layer 7 and network response-time data makes it a competitive solution in the performance management market. By combining performance metrics, analytics and detailed historical archiving, Mazu Profiler truly helps organizations better secure and optimize their networks."
Mazu Profiler provides significant value to network, security and data center operations teams by offering organizations a new way of looking at the IT infrastructure. By analyzing network traffic to provide valuable information about the interactions of and dependencies between users, applications and systems, Mazu Profiler enables IT organizations to manage, secure and optimize the availability and performance of business services. This new perspective enables IT teams to improve key initiatives including: application performance management; security and compliance; WAN management; CMDB discovery; and data center consolidation and migration.
The latest release of Mazu Profiler furthers the product's ability to address the initiatives of performance and availability management, WAN management and security and compliance in the following ways:
Performance and Availability Management
-- Response-Time Management
Mazu Profiler provides the ability to alert network managers to application response time threshold violations. This enables them to identify the network round-trip time (RTT) and server delay components of response time. Now, network managers can easily understand and proactively alert on business units or users experiencing poor performance and quickly determine if the problem is network or server based.
-- WAN Optimization Reporting
Mazu Profiler enables network managers to accurately quantify the cost and bandwidth savings of WAN optimization. By providing visibility into which links and applications will benefit from optimization, Mazu Profiler allows network managers to justify WAN expenditure, prioritize optimization rollout and identify and remove non-business related traffic.
Security and Compliance
-- ACL-based Mitigation
One-click ACL creation allows security teams to block a problem system or threat with granularity. This feature complements Mazu Profiler's existing router and switch mitigation.
"Mazu Profiler is a required technology for any IT operations team who needs to know exactly what is happening on the infrastructure at any time. Only by understanding the behavior of their infrastructure can these teams truly manage performance and availability. Through Mazu Profiler they gain a level of network intelligence unrivaled by competitive performance management solutions," said Paul Brady, CEO, Mazu Networks. "We are winning accounts today against traditional performance management vendors, which is a clear indication that customers are quickly seeing the vast difference between the value we provide as compared with the status quo."
Maintaining high network availability and performance is critical to running a productive business.
