Flowmon Introduces Network Traffic Analysis for Google Cloud

Network intelligence and visibility solutions provider Flowmon Networks recently announced their support of cloud-native visibility features inside Google Cloud. The new features take advantage of Google Cloud’s Packet Mirroring feature, announced last November at Google Cloud Next in London. Packet Mirroring allows users to collect and inspect network traffic for Compute Engine and GKE. With Flowmon’s new integration, the tool can mirror and observe Google Cloud traffic data, allowing Flowmon to extend its threat monitoring, performance troubleshooting and anomaly detection capabilities.

“Packet Mirroring by Google Cloud is a great new feature enabling cloud traffic monitoring in the exact same way as customers are used to in the on-premise world,” says Pavel Minarik, Chief Technology Officer at Flowmon Networks. “IT teams must keep services up and running but also need to detect unusual traffic patterns that point at a security breach. With Flowmon and Packet Mirroring, this is now available for Google Cloud assets as well.”

Flowmon’s Packet Mirroring integration provides users with early threat response and reduced mean-time-to-resolution for incidents that impact application availability and data security in Google Cloud. It also provides actionable insights into cloud outages and service degradations, as well as how they’ll impact your infrastructure at large. In addition, users can pair Flowmon’s integrations with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure to observe traffic for multicloud deployments.

“Traffic visibility is critical for preventing security breaches and attacks as networks grow in complexity,” said Mahesh Narayanan, Product Manager at Google Cloud. “With Packet Mirroring, our customers now have a way to proactively detect network intrusions, analyze, and diagnose application performance issues for both Compute Engine and Google Kubernetes Engine, across all regions and machine types.”
