Kratos Introduces New Release of Its Enterprise Network Management Product NeuralStar With Anomaly Analysis and Event Pattern Recognition Capabilities

Kratos Networks

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Networks, Inc. announced the new release of its flagship network management and situational awareness product, NeuralStar®, that adds anomaly analysis and event pattern recognition capabilities. The new release also provides real-time intelligence for ensuring optimal performance, increased availability, enhanced cybersecurity protection and informed decision-making.

NeuralStar is used by some of the most robust and security-conscious enterprise-grade military and commercial networks in the world. NeuralStar monitors events that may impact network availability, performance, security, or quality of service, providing network operators with a single situational awareness dashboard. By collecting performance data from all network hardware, applications, management and security systems, operators can identify health and status issues, make adjustments to maintain network throughput, and minimize anomalies such as congestion and latency.

"With new security threats, constant change, and accelerated network growth, it is vital to have clear insight into the behavior of IT infrastructure to effectively manage, operate and secure today's enterprise networks," said Michael Smith, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Technology at Kratos Networks. "The new release of NeuralStar helps operators detect network anomalies and recognize event patterns more quickly to simplify and automate the process of pro-actively managing end-to-end performance across the enterprise."

Unlike the time-consuming manual threshold approach used by many enterprises today, NeuralStar enables network operators to rapidly isolate and troubleshoot performance bottlenecks and suspicious activity on the network. Using a wizard-driven interface, network managers can automatically create dynamic activity-baselines across the IT infrastructure. Dynamic thresholds can also be set above and below baseline values so that alerts are received if network traffic levels spike or drop dramatically, so performance and security issues can be rapidly detected and resolved before any impact occurs.

With the new release, enterprise management capabilities have been enhanced to enable operators to quickly adapt to security threats and performance issues across distributed sites. NeuralStar enables the centralized management of user authentication, rules, and device groupings across regional and local sites. In addition, dynamic monitoring of remote sites reduces the number of false alarms and accelerates the remediation process.
