LogRhythm’s Network Monitor Freemium an impressive winner when put to the test

02 May 17

Network monitoring is a key part of operations and security - especially as more attacks hide themselves on your targeted networks. But not all security tools have to come with a price tag.

The SANS Institute, a trusted InfoSec training institution, tested LogRhythm’s Network Monitor Freemium (NetMon Freemium) Version 3.2.3 with several key areas of focus in mind.

Those focus areas were usability; accurate traffic detection and profiling; detection of patterns and drilldown into sources; sensitive data identification and data loss prevention; network forensics; and full packet capture and file reconstruction.

The results? NetMon Freemium is intuitive and displayed powerful monitoring capabilities for enterprises of any size. And in just 30 minutes SANS felt it had mastered the software.

Why is LogRhythm’s NetMon Freemium so powerful? Read more in the ‘Packets Don’t Lie: LogRhythm NetMon Freemium Review’, produced by SANS and sponsored by LogRhythm.

The white paper:

  • Shows how NetMon Freemium works
  • Goes through a step by step process of how it performs
  • Provides real life use cases such as malware, nuisance apps and bandwidth hogs
  • Why NetMon Freemium is just as much an analysts’ tool as a network detection tool
