Instantly transform your open data platform into a powerful network performance and security analytics solution with the ElastiFlow Unified Netflow Collector 5.0.

Philadelphia, PA and Munich, Germany, February 28, 2020 – ElastiFlow Inc., with over 37,000+ users of its flagship ElastiFlow community edition, today announced General Availability of its ElastiFlow Unified Flow Collector 5.0. ElastiFlow supports the leading open data platforms, such as Elasticsearch and AWS Open Distro, providing a true turnkey solution network performance and security analytics.“Our users, customers and partners have confirmed that basic flow data collection and processing falls short of today’s requirements for network observability,” stated ElastiFlow CEO and Founder Rob Cowart. “The market demands deep normalization, translation and enrichment of the data, to ensure that both human and machine-driven analytics, have the right insights at the right time. ElastiFlow’s ability to deliver highly detailed network telemetry, in real-time and at any scale, is perfectly timed to meet these prevalent market requirements. For example, when analyzing the scope of the highly publicized Solarwinds hack, it is clear that it should have been quickly detected using unsampled flow data. The companies impacted, most likely did not use network flow data to detect anomalous traffic, or they only used sampled data. ElastiFlow’s ability to provide deep insights on massive amounts of unsampled flow data, helps users to identify and mitigate threats before they become headlines.”Complete and immediate visibility of your network infrastructure has never been more important. While most solutions collect and transform subsets of data, the mandatory requirement of collecting flow records at any scale is only provided by ElastiFlow as the solution extracts data from 6200 plus standard and vendor specific fields.
