Monitor Application Usage

Monitor Every Application In Use

See SaaS and cloud application traffic on all your networks

IT Ops groups can discover all the apps in use in their organization by deploying AppNeta physical or virtual Monitoring Points. AppNeta’s comprehensive technology performs Deep Packet Inspection on 100% of traffic to investigate how end users are experiencing those applications with metrics like TCP retransmit rates. It’s continuous, lightweight, and more granular than traditional tools like NetFlow which requires additional management and storage infrastructure. As a passive component, Usage provides crucial context to AppNeta's other active technologies to round out our 4-Dimensional monitoring.

Monitor any app, anytime

Get a big-picture look at which apps are in use and what their total traffic volume is with AppNeta's tailored graphs and reports. There are more than 2,000 built-in apps as part of AppNeta's solution. Add your own custom app definitions as needed. You'll see everything in use on your network, whether off-site or on-premises.

With this functionality, you can categorize and classify apps into buckets: Business Critical, Normal and Recreational. For example, identify whether streaming media is congesting the network and causing delays for other apps like Salesforce or ServiceNow. You'll be able to pinpoint exactly which apps are hogging bandwidth and where, by which user, to reallocate resources as needed.

See end-user experience

AppNeta offers powerful, unique granularity into specific end-user experience. Get application and network metrics for users at all of your locations and take advantage of Active Directory integration. Identify if slow performance is unique to a user, app or location by exploring your traffic data quickly and easily. You'll be able to see whether the problem is within your control or whether it's a SaaS provider or ISP issue.

This image shows AppNeta's detailed view into end-user experience. See the Top Hosts for our Boston, MA location. Our user ssweeney is experiencing an average of 4.5 seconds of latency for Salesforce. We can explore the app across all users in Boston to see if this high latency issue is affecting only this user, this entire office or if it's an app issue with Salesforce

Discover and visualize application use

Our tools bring you intuitive, interactive visualizations of application use across all your offices. You'll see the application in use, and can see on a per-user basis who's having a good experience and who's having a bad one.

Unlike legacy monitoring tools, which are very device-centric, AppNeta's solution goes beyond simple port and protocol statistics. Our big data capabilities allow you to get a picture of any user at any location on the fly. The accompanying image shows how AppNeta's tools match location with application use for a quick, digestible view. Flow data combined with DPI analysis allows AppNeta to discover all apps in use (not just web apps) and see the impact on real users across all apps on the network.

Protocol breakdown from a remote packet capture

Use built-in remote packet capture

Beyond flow analysis, Usage also has true packet-level visibility with the option to run and analyze captures at any location, whether you're there or not, to gather the information you need to solve issues faster. For remote locations, you won't need to rely on non-technical users to provide feedback. 

Access the packet capture immediately to analyze the top protocols in use at the site or download the complete encrypted capture file. All packet captures are encrypted with FIPS 140-2 and PCI DSS compliant encryption before the capture leaves the Monitoring Point and are transferred via encrypted protocols so that your captures are encrypted in transit and at rest.

Keep packet captures for a year, see AD users, schedule report delivery and do local DNS resolution with AppNeta
