NAVL OEM Embedded Software Engine Provides Internet Intelligence for GFI's Web Security Solution, Enabling SMBs to Monitor, Set and Enforce Usage Policies for Improved ROI

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Internet Intelligence company, today announced that its Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) has been selected by GFI Software™ to enhance GFI WebMonitor™, one of the industry's leading web security solutions for small to mid-size businesses (SMBs). Procera's NAVL software engine provides granular traffic visibility, intelligence and control for GFI's solution so that IT managers are able to enhance Internet security, optimize bandwidth investments and usage, and monitor network activity for abuse and potential threats.

Drawing on Procera's Internet Intelligence, GFI WebMonitor also enables various departments outside of IT access to information they can use to address their unique concerns by providing real-time information, drill down and highly targeted reports to drive improved decision making about Internet usage, activity and investments.

"SMBs receive a rapid return on investment with GFI WebMonitor, immediately noticing improved productivity, less administrative time spent cleaning infected machines, and better use of bandwidth resources," said Sergio Galindo, GM, Infrastructure Business Unit at GFI. "Using Procera's NAVL solution enhances our product capabilities, enabling us to focus on our core competencies and more strategic activities that drive our bottom line so we can address the evolving concerns and demands of our SMB customers."

"In addition to a wide variety of malware detection techniques, advanced solutions in the Secure Web Gateway space such as GFI's WebMonitor are adding DPI engines to their products for improved intelligence and control," said James Dirksen, Vice President of OEM and Embedded Products at Procera. "These solutions are critical to SMBs as the numbers and types of mobile devices in the enterprise have risen in recent years. DPI capabilities will become increasingly important differentiators for them as the market continues to mature and BYOD usage expands."

NAVL's industry leading traffic signature database is updated on an ongoing basis, allowing solution providers to keep their products current with today's evolving network landscape including malicious sites, security threats and potential sources of Internet abuse. NAVL is a next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) software engine that provides real-time, Layer-7 classification of network traffic. Running on all popular processors and operating systems, NAVL allows integrators to remain focused on their core competencies while implementing industry-leading DPI functionality from Procera in their products.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
