Cymphonix Launches iPhone App and New Version of Network ComposerNew Version Provides Complete Visibility and Control for URL and Internet Traffic; Supports Organizations Moving Critical Apps to 'The Cloud' (July 07, 2009)
SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 07/07/09 -- Cymphonix® today released the latest version of its award-winning Cymphonix Network Composer® product, introducing new features and enhanced reporting capabilities that provide unprecedented visibility and control for Web traffic and Internet applications. As part of today's announcement, Cymphonix also unveiled a new application for the Apple iPhone* and iPod* touch that gives IT managers the ability to monitor and report their network traffic from the convenience of a handheld device.
Today's Cymphonix news supports the company's mission to help customers achieve complete visibility, security and control over Internet traffic to ensure that business-critical applications, such as Salesforce or ERP systems, are guaranteed the bandwidth to perform as expected. As more organizations begin to view Web 2.0 and cloud computing applications as viable business tools, they will require flexible solutions that allow them to intelligently prioritize and manage content, applications and bandwidth.
"Everything in our industry has moved online," said Gene Harrison, network engineer for New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. "Applications such as Medicaid, Medicare, external billing programs, and programs designed to research possible drug interactions are now web-based. Having deep visibility into Web traffic and Internet applications, and the ability to fine tune usage policies to create an efficient and secure internet connection is critical to keeping up with new advances in medicine."
Key features for the latest version of Network Composer include:
-- New, highly-scalable reporting engine that dramatically boosts visibility for large environments -- New multi-correlated management reporting capabilities for achieving granular-level visibility and the ability to drill down into users' access and usage patterns. -- Enhanced Network Composer database architecture that supports network administrators' specific reporting needs and supports industry standard tools, such as Crystal Reports, Excel, Access or PERL programs.
Content Identification for Industry Leading Web Filtering
-- Enhanced content identification with increased URL database, expanded dynamic content engines, more than 90 content categories, and support for 21 languages provides users with an unsurpassed ability to create comprehensive Web access policies. -- Expanded spyware/Malware Recognition through participation in a global anti-malware consortium that provides shared code samples and information from multiple honeypots.
The new iPhone and iPod touch application unveiled today gives 'on the go' users the ability to conduct real-time monitoring and manage a secure Web gateway from the convenience of the iPhone and iPod touch devices. The idea of providing access to critical data from anywhere -- and letting users actually interact and manage that data -- is an industry first.
"Solutions capable of providing a high level of visibility have become a 'must have' for any organization that wants to capture the business benefits of Web 2.0 in a secure and productive way," said Brent Nixon, president of Cymphonix. "Our ability to control and manage content that best aligns with business needs is a huge differentiator for Cymphonix and it helps us ensure that our customers' Internet connection will remain fast, secure and reliable."
