With Indeni Insight, CIOs and network architects gain more control and visibility over their networks. It works by supplying valuable insights and hard-to-access data about your network and other organizations’ networks from around the globe – enabling you to make smarter decisions.

Get answers to questions like:

  • Are we leading the market in the product releases we are using, or trailing?
  • Is our network healthier than other organizations our size, or is there room for improvement?
  • How is the performance of our network relative to other networks?
  • Am I utilizing my product licenses correctly? Is there room for change or consolidation?

In addition, indeni utilizes the data to improve our service to customers and share interesting insights. With this data we can provide better signatures that provide more value and less noise. With indeni Insight, we can also provide proactive support. It allows us to contact customers that are using indeni and help them achieve the most with it.

Indeni Insight subscribers also receive a monthly report (sample) detailing the health of their environment.

How is the data protected?
Before leaving your network, the data goes through various filters to eliminate confidential information – such as IP addresses. The data is uploaded to indeni’s servers in an encrypted channel and is protected by the same means indeni protects its own confidential data. For more details, please contact the indeni representative you work with.

Who is using Indeni Insight?

As we keep the data of customers using Indeni Insight confidential, as well as their identity, we cannot share this information. What we can do, however, is let you see some of the data being shared on a global basis.

How do you test the connectivity from your Indeni instance to Indeni Insight?
As data is uploaded to our servers via Amazon Web Services, through an encrypted channel, it is very easy to test that communication works as designed. Simply SSH into your indeni instance (using putty, SecureCRT, and the like) and run the following command:

#  curl -v

If you get back a message similar to “AWS is accessible”, you’re good. If you don’t, check your firewall rules to ensure this traffic isn’t being blocked.
