Link Logger Product Information
The driving motivation behind Link Logger is to enable users to see and learn
about internet security and their network traffic. Internet security has
changed much since Link Logger was originally publicly released in April 2001,
as the number of scans and attacks has increased from a couple per hour to over
2000 per hour and still increasing, but most people are unaware of internet
security as it is not visible in a traditional sense. Link Logger is
designed to take the logging information sent out from your router/firewall,
process and then display it in a fashion that allows you to see what is
happening at your router/firewall, so you can see how many scans/attacks are
occurring, when and where they are coming from, what kinds of scans/attacks are
they and provide a link to where you can get further information concerning the
details of a scan or attack and do all of this in real time in a very easy to
use product. With Link Logger you can see when new scans or attacks are
released and their effect on the internet and if they are a threat to your
network. You can even tell if a system on your network becomes infected
and starts scanning out on the internet so you can take appropriate action to
re-secure that system.
Link Logger also allows you to monitor and administer the systems on your
LAN, so you can ensure that they are being used appropriately on the internet as
you can see where, when and how the internet is being accessed. Your
router/firewall is the last single point your network so it is also the last
logical place to monitor the health and usage of your network and the systems on
it. Link Logger allows you to view your traffic in real time and be able
to produce reports and graphs on a network level or by individual system and
while reports and graphs are good, Link Logger gives you the ability to retrieve
and review the details behind the reports quickly and easily. From
displaying network usage trends to individual incident review Link Logger can
help you gain and maintain control of your network.
Using Link Logger powerful traffic analysis and reporting features can not
only help you to monitor and understand your network traffic, but can help you
communicate that with others so they can quickly and easily see why internet
security is such a concern or how your network is being utilized. Most
logging tools only show you the raw data which was sent out from the
router/firewall, we take that information and process it and squeeze out as much
information as possible, and then present it to you in a form that makes sense
and allows you to analyze it however you wish, ranging from overview reports and
graphics to retrieval of individual historic events, quickly and easily.
While Link Logger is extensively tested and beta tested before release to
ensure that Link Logger is as solid and reliable as
possible, it is nice to know that quality technical support is only a quick email
away at firstname.lastname@example.org where
your questions will be answered as quickly as possible.
