Massive volumes of application usage data collected, analyzed and reported by Purview™ to help focus organizations on improving user experience, engagement and organizational efficiency.
Extreme Networks® (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leading provider of high performance networking solutions, today introduced Purview, a first-of-its-kind solution built on patented ASIC technology. Purview provides visibility into application use across the network, helping organizations in four ways: improving the experience of connected users; enhancing organizations understanding of user engagement; optimizing application performance; protecting against malicious or unapproved system use. By using Purview, organizations are better able to deliver significant improvements to their critical technology assets.
In today's highly connected, and overly stimulated world, it is exceedingly difficult to measure user engagement, improve the mobile and social user experience, and ensure the integrity of mission critical networks. Purview uniquely addresses these complex requirements by integrating with network data that carries context of users, devices, locations and applications in use. Purview captures network data and then aggregates, analyzes, correlates, characterizes, and finally reports; providing unprecedented insight into how and why systems and users perform. Purview leverages breakthrough technology to bridge the gap between IT network management, security, and business intelligence through a single integrated view. Purview helps organizations improve user experience, while meeting the growing needs of network users, and improving network performance. The benefits of Purview can be realized with Extreme Networks solutions, or networks from any other Ethernet switching vendor.

With Purview, we have introduced a groundbreaking offering that leverages the network to empower customers and partners to improve interactions with end users, enhance engagement and optimize system efficiencies. This deeper level of insight allows organizations to rapidly make well-informed decisions aimed at improving the user experience.said Chuck Berger, president and CEO, Extreme Networks
