DOSarrest’s Traffic Analyzer (DTA)


DTA is a cloud based turnkey solution for network operators and engineers allowing them to graphically view network traffic in detail traversing their network infrastructure in real- time. It’s not an over complex tool providing a vast amount of useless statistics that can never really be used by an engineering team. It’s what you need, when you need it.

You can’t effectively manage a network if you don’t know what it’s doing. Whether you have 1 router or 500 spread out around the globe, this service is a must have.

“This is by far the easiest to setup, maintain and use within minutes”

Why use DTA ?

Most network engineers have no real-time insights of what’s going on in their network at any one time, let alone what happened yesterday, last week or last month, making finding any trend next to impossible. They know what the bandwidth volume is but not what applications or systems are consuming the bandwidth, like Web, Mail, DNS, SQL, etc are. It can make capacity planning and QOS, very difficult.

As of late this type of network analysis was only available by deploying and configuring expensive on premises hardware along with maintenance and licensing contracts. This is a thing of the past, as this mode of analysis belongs in the cloud with an operator that can give you actionable intelligence you can use in real-time.

How it works

Practically every router and most switches these days produce an incredible amount of information on what types of traffic and at what volumes are traversing the network. DTA allows network operators to send this Netflow, Sflow or Jflow traffic analysis data to our DTA big data platform where it is stored and then presented to a customer in an easy to view fashion in real-time.
