Network Traffic Analysis Software monitors network traffic and keeps constant track of granular details associated with network communications. This software offers extended visibility into networks and communications activity and records, reviews, and analyzes network traffic in order to monitor performance, security, and general network operations. Network Traffic Analyzer tools are also used to provide details about network performance issues by identifying suspicious traffic. These solutions use manual and automated techniques to check granular statistics within network traffic and alert IT personnel in case of abnormal activities—assisting them in remediating threats and reducing network failure.
