Overview:

Inflight is an out-of-path, network-based pervasive monitoring appliance that captures all user transactions from ‘in-flight’ network traffic and delivers real-time events for business applications. Inflight enables organizations to leverage these valuable insights to identify business events or security threats embedded in web transactions and respond instantaneously.

Inflight extracts critical business events with detailed user transactions, performed over the web, showing user actions such as money transfers, login events made, or attempted items purchased or viewed. In addition, Inflight can further enrich the information to enable full compliance as well as correlate intersession events to create valuable business information outputs such as security threats or site performance drops alarms. This vital information is delivered in to the relevant processing unit, such as event analytics applications or to other network appliances – for networking based proactive actions.

Key Business Benefits:

  • Add new security layer to online presence
    Identify security breach including fraud, content theft or any other threat by analyzing traffic content and patterns
  • Enabling real time marketing
    Extract actionable insights and marketing intelligence – for real time marketing campaigns, otherwise not available through the web application
  • Maintain high QoE
    Monitor site performance and provide QoE statistics detailed down to the user level– by monitoring actual user traffic, and if needed, initiate a corrective action in real time
  • Simplify and centralize logging tasks

Protect Your Business and Drive Revenue with Actionable User Insight

Inflight™ is the only network-based monitoring solution that delivers actionable, real-time business events to any back-end analytic system. The easy-to-deploy appliance monitors and captures raw, identity-based data from online channels, converts that content into meaningful information and feeds the resulting event streams into horizontal analytics engines – all in real-time.

Business events are the critical, detailed user transactions performed over the web that show actions performed in business terms: money transfers over $10,000, deposits or withdrawals, login events made or attempted, items purchased or viewed. This click-stream information is delivered in relevant business terms which can be used by the back-end application.

With this information, companies can respond instantaneously so networks can intelligently manage resources based on user and business requirements. Detailed session and log-in information is flexible enough to support a variety of systems.

  • Web analytics/real-time marketing
  • Business intelligence (BI)
  • Security information and event management (SIEM)
  • Enterprise fraud management
  • Event and log management
  • Complex event processing (CEP)

And since deep, detailed transactional information on actual users (not just IP addresses) can be identified, enterprises and carriers can use the output (in combination with analytic and operational decision support engines) to

  • Stop fraudulent acts in process and protect users from fraud and identity theft
  • Optimize business processes by understanding detailed user activity, resulting in up-selling to a customer based on their session activity
  • Enhance business and/or log user activity for regulatory compliance
  • Drive business optimization with a business-smart network

Challenge and Solution:

Real Time, Real Life Site Performance Monitoring

The Challenge
A crucial parameter affecting customer satisfaction in the online business environment is site performance – an important factor on the perceived customer’s QoE. Identifying site performance drops in real time, is crucial for fast and effective problem resolution, before end user’s QoE drops and for maintaining business reputation.

The Solution
Inflight provides what’s really needed to maintain end user QoE – real time and real life performance monitoring at the user level. Unlike existing alternatives, the Inflight solution is automated, relies on real-time and user experience and traffic (vs. manually and synthetically defined traffic patterns) enabling detection of network bottlenecks and error resolution, per user, as the user experiences it. Addressing site performance drops in real time at the user level enables personal reaction, ensuring user satisfaction even in case of momentary drop in QoE.

According to a Forrester Consulting 40% of online users will abandon site if page load time will be above 3 seconds.

Proactive performance monitoring – fast and accurate resolution of site and user performance issues, maximizing QoE at all times.
Simple site performance analysis – no need to pre configure or reconfigure site parameters as it evolves to gain relevant visibility on application and general site bottlenecks. Inflight automatically provides statistics correlated per web application, page or user, automatically enriching information with user’s geo location, as opposed to other synthetic, non real time or real life site performance monitoring solutions. Cost effective performance monitoring solution lowering OPEX – doesn’t require maintenance of the site performance monitoring tool in order to keep providing most relevant results, even after the site’s functions and structure change.


Inflight for E-Commerce Sites

The Challenge
E-commerce competitiveness relies on the defense of core business information assets. Any e-commerce site, whether it is aware of it or not, is potentially under constant attacks of automated bots and site scrapers, which are trying to automatically replicate its core business information assets – the same information which is publicly open to its customers. Besides the direct negative business impact such data theft may have, those automated bots also overload the site’s web application servers as well as utilize a high percentage of its costly internet connection.

The Solution
Inflight can improve e-commerce site competitiveness by enabling real time protection of publicly available data, from bots and scrapers serving competitors. By preventing knowledge leak and core business information loss – customers can ensure full extraction of the monetary benefit from your investments. In addition, protecting IT assets from being replicated or stolen enables e-commerce sites to sell data extracted from their core business databases – which can provide additional sales revenues from the protected IT assets.

Inflight Capabilities Benefits
Real time monitoring of all inbound and outbound traffic – such as traffic content and pattern analysis, enabling detection of automated bots and scrapers activity stilling valuable web site content. Prevent knowledge leaks and core business information loss – ensuring full extraction of the monetary benefit from your investments.
Actionable feeds – to external analytical engines and other network devices, this powerful detection is natively converted into real time active protection. Increase the value of your publicly available data – preventing data scrapping to enable legitimate sales and revenues from the protected data (as databases), for non-competing purposes.


Inflight for Online Finance Environments

The Challenge
Financial institutions that operate online services strongly rely on their ability to protect themselves and their customers from evolving fraudulent activity. Detecting fraudulent transactions in real-time requires monitoring of all traffic coming in and out of the business’s web site. Furthermore, anti fraud solutions must provide agility and fast integration with existing systems and fast time to market, in order to address the constantly changing security threats.

The Solution
The Inflight monitoring solution provides real time web traffic mediation and business event extraction, optimized for fraud activity detection, enabling on time prevention. This minimizes loss and damages to online business, through rich, real time logs, smart multistep transaction correlation and actionable event feed generation.

Inflight provides an agile protection solution – through an independent off-production-path monitoring solution, enabling fast deployment and full separation between production application and security monitoring.

Inflight Capabilities Benefits
