Firewall Monitoring Tool
Don’t let an overloaded firewall choke your network performance
"Deploying Obkio allowed me to quickly pinpoint a vastly underestimated problem on my firewall that was actually affecting the network performance of all my remote users."
Your firewall performance affects your network performance.
If your firewall chokes, it’ll affect that performance of your entire network. So if your firewall is overloaded, you need to detect it before your end-users feel the negative effects. That's where we come in.
Obkio takes firewall performance seriously, and so should you.
Your firewall is your business’ security guard - all internet action needs to go through your firewall before it can reach your network to make sure there’s no potential security threat. That means that your firewall is extremely critical to your business.
With Obkio’s Firewall monitoring, you get a continuous view of your firewall performance:
- Monitor Firewall performance with synthetic traffic
- Measure the impact of your firewall on your end-user experience
- View Firewall performance metrics in real-time
- Be notified immediately of network problems.
- And more!
Is your Firewall strong enough to sustain your network?
Firewalls are complex, and adding security features is vital to your business, but can consume resources and equipment.
Manufacturers are pros at selling you Firewall specifications, but it’s difficult to know which firewall sizing model you actually need.
Undetected traffic or CPU bursts in your firewall can create intermittent network issues and are often signs of upcoming problems that can worsen over time if undetected.
There are 5 things that affect Firewall Performance:
- The volume of traffic
- The type of traffic
- The amount of users on your firewall
- The amount of connections on your VPN
- The quantity of security features in your firewall*
