NetBrain intelligence is built on top of its deep network discovery capability. Traditional discovery tools only find what you have in the network. NetBrain discovers both what you have (network devices) and how they are put together (network design). This is achieved by leveraging a patented neighbor-walking discovery engine combined with advanced network modeling. During the discovery process, NetBrain simultaneously analyzes data collected from SNMP and the CLI, and decodes network design every step along the way.
Often starting with the single input of a seed router, NetBrain’s discovery is powerful but still easy to use. Key features include:
- Deep network discovery – output includes devices, topology and network design
- Fastest in the industry – up to 2,000 routers, switches or firewalls per hour
- Accurate – the algorithm ensures nearly 99% accuracy for discovering networked devices
- Robust – capable of handling highly fragmented networks
