The FlowTraq team is proud to announce the general availability of the Q1/13 release of FlowTraq. Current customers may download the update from our download site. For an evaluation copy, please go to: /product/try-flowtraq.

This release includes some major upgrades in performance and usability. You will notice that FlowTraq queries will run almost 2x as fast as before. Thanks to a judicious use of system CPU resources, the development team was able to optimize query processing performance, allowing you to handle nearly 2x the number of flows on the same hardware! Combined with FlowTraq clustering, you are virtually unlimited in your full-fidelity flow analysis capabilities with FlowTraq.

Additionally, FlowTraq now offers a complete JSON API for writing your own applications on top of the FlowTraq web user interface. JSON represents a powerful and flexible new development path to make FlowTraq even better customized to your environment.

Finally, our web user interface now features a beta version of our highly configurable NBI anomaly detecors. We understand that you don’t always learn about threats to your network while sitting at your desk. Now the powerful statistical anomaly detection techniques you’ve already come to rely on from the command line are available with a few quick clicks from the FlowTraq web interface: Add, start, stop, and configure any of the NBI detectors from your web browser.
