Dedicated Reporting Apps for Web Gateways and Firewalls
You don’t need to become a log analysis expert. That’s our job. We’ve created dedicated, streamlined reporting applications for the major web gateways and firewalls. All you need to do is read the reports!
For everything else, we have WebSpy Vantage – a generic log analysis and reporting framework with support for over 200 log formats.
Fastvue Syslog is a simple, unlimited and free Syslog Server for Windows. Collect syslog messages into text files for all devices on your network.
Don’t Trust Your Firewall’s Internet Usage Reports
Fastvue Site Clean makes the log data from your firewall reflect real Internet usage activity. It removes images, scripts, fonts, ads, and other background traffic so you can send meaningful Internet usage reports an alerts, to the right person.
The Problem of Reporting on the Modern Web
Internet Reports produced by web gateways do not distinguish between the web sites people intentionally access, and the web sites that are automatically accessed behind the scenes.
Fastvue Site Clean (Patent Pending) digs deeper and looks at all characteristics of web browsing log file data, to provide a more accurate picture of real web activity.
The best part for me is that once I setup the reports and who they go to, I am out of the loop totally. The department manager can parse through the report, run more detailed reports, and take action without involving me at all as a net admin. Fastvue Site Clean made it even easier for the managers to understand (How do you explain what a CDN is to the accounting manager?).
When our demo ran out I literally felt blind as to what was going on with people surfing, etc. Working with support has been a total pleasure as they’re willing to go above and beyond to make the customer completely satisfied!
What normally would have taken half an hour can now be done in a few minutes with much more detail. Fastvue Reporter has allowed to actually monitor web traffic and find those that may be abusing or violating our policies. The graphs and visual top lists make monitoring the network much easier as well
