Qosmos Launches L7Viewer, a New Traffic Analysis Tool for Virtual Infrastructure
Paris, France – November 2, 2016: Qosmos®, the market leader for IP traffic classification and network intelligence technology, today announced L7Viewer® - a traffic analysis tool that provides complete visibility of all network traffic that crosses a virtual infrastructure, up to Layer 7.
Today’s virtualized IT infrastructure with dynamic, distributed resources and increasing inter-dependencies is becoming highly complex to manage. A lack of visibility is often cited as the main challenge by IT staff for the safe and efficient management of their virtualized infrastructure and networking.Thanks to a new level of traffic visibility, L7Viewer facilitates and accelerates common but tedious IT tasks such as VM migration, application upgrades, and root-cause identification for network and application performance issues.
L7Viewer provides a complete Layer 2-7 view of all inter-VM traffic in the data center and between any VM and the external environment. By mappingall network traffic, it delivers full visibility of data flows and types, displaying the information in a way that provides an immediate understanding of network activity at any given time.
Unique features of L7Viewer:
- Most detailed visibility in the industry (2700+ protocols, from Layer 2 to 7)
- View over traffic from both known (sanctioned) and unknown (e.g. Shadow IT) applications
- Covers inter-VM traffic as well as traffic between any VM and external environment
- Ability to filter per hypervisor, VM, IP, host, port, protocol, application
- Dashboards for specific use cases
“L7Viewer is powered by Qosmos ixEngine, which is the de facto industry-standard for IP classification software”, said Thibaut Bechetoille, Qosmos CEO. “Our new traffic analysis tool leverages more than 10 years’ experience in Deep Packet Inspection and provides visibility for 2700+ protocols and applications, which is ten times more than any comparable product. This is what makes L7Viewer more precise, more effective and more reliable than any other traffic analysis solution for virtual infrastructures today.”
