Austin, Texas, October 09, 2009 " ManageEngine, makers of a globally renowned suite of cost effective network, systems and security management software solutions, today introduced Firewall Analyzer 6.0, a significant upgrade to the company's network perimeter monitoring and firewall reporting application. The new version is designed for larger businesses requiring real-time access to reports and greater scalability, including the ability to monitor remote locations.

Among the numerous application enhancements, Firewall Analyzer 6.0 features:

  • Interface-based live reports, giving administrators real-time reports specific to each firewall interface (e.g. incoming and outgoing traffic, DMZ), providing a more detailed view of what is happening on the network as it happens;

    • Log time zone normalization for devices located across various geographies, making it easier to schedule a regular, recurring review of logs;

    • Unified Threat Management reports collecting spam, virus & attack details;

    • Alert notification via SMS, informing administrators of a potential security event via mobile phone, and;

    • 64 Bit OS support.

      ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer 6.0 Enterprise Edition includes all these features while also providing greater visibility across remote locations. Administrators can now manage up to 1000 devices per admin server, allowing centralized monitoring and reporting of all firewall interfaces across the entire enterprise.

      Managed security service providers (MSSPs) will also benefit from the new version, particularly the ability to easily select or de-select multiple devices for management, and the ability to re-brand the user interface to display a customized client to the managed customers.

      "Our challenge was to determine the amount of actual time spent on the VPN versus what was reported by individual users," said Bill Faber, senior network engineer at Brickstreet Insurance. "Firewall Analyzer allowed us to view reports that showed every user that logged in. Its ease of reporting made it our final choice."

      "We are excited about offering this new version of Firewall Analyzers to our customers," said Saravana Kumar, product manager for Firewall Analyzer. "Our customers have been a huge part of our development process with their feedback and feature requests. We believe that the new Enterprise Edition with its distributed collection architecture will be an instant hit with large enterprises and MSSPs."

      Availability & Pricing

      The new Firewall Analyzer 6.0 can be downloaded directly from the company's website, A 30-day free evaluation, with full functionality, is available.

      Pricing starts at $395 for the standalone edition, while the Enterprise Edition starts at $6995 for 20 devices.
