Information on data being transferred and users who communicated, with whom and when, represent the most-important security building block, whether it is an organization, an institution, or the state. As the network infrastructure has developed and its complexity increased in recent years, it is becoming more and more difficult to provide sufficient reliability, security and availability of computer networks. Traditional SNMP monitoring tools are therefore no longer sufficient to cover administrators’ needs. This opens new opportunities for modern network traffic monitoring technologies based on data flow analyses, providing a detailed network traffic overview. Today’s IT environment administration should be based on computer network monitoring by means of data flows. Such a solution can save both time and costs, in addition to various benefits for both small and large companies or organisations.
