Not only is this an excellent way for administrators to see what’s happening as it happens, it also makes a great NOC display.
Identify Suspicious Traffic
NEW! Suspicious Connections Report – Use Network Traffic Analysis to identify and reveal traffic connections and conversations with suspicious IP addresses inside or outside your network, allowing you to act quickly and take appropriate measures to correct the threat and minimize damage. A new IP Reputation library gives you control over suspicious IP address lists with the ability to retrieve up to date blacklists from independent sources or create your own. In combination with this report, you can also configure and send alerts based on abnormal user network behavior patterns.
Dark Web (Tor) Detection & Reporting
WhatsUp Gold can alert administrators when users access the Dark Web (Tor). This feature monitors all Network Traffic Analyzer Sources and can alert when any host exceeds a configurable number of connections to known Tor ports during a set period. This allows administrators to control access to the Dark Web by their users.
Know Who Started Maintenance and Why
NEW! Enhanced Maintenance Mode – You can now enter a reason when placing a device into Maintenance Mode and view these reasons in the new Maintenance Mode Report. At any time you’ll be able to see who but that device into maintenance and why, making it easier to keep track of why devices are in maintenance and to simplify communication with your team.
Find Configuration Discrepancies

Monitor AWS & Azure Performance

Not only does this allow you to track cloud resource usage, it also allows you to track cloud billing and show this report on a simple dashboard. Use WhatsUp Gold to track long-term trends – something impossible with the 60 or 90-day metrics most cloud providers support.
