LANreveal Logo

LANreveal was originally written back in early 2008 as a proof-of-concept idea for host-based network analysis and security event correlation.

The trial was a success, however it never made it past the proof-of-concept stage at that time...

More recently, and thanks to some external interest, the project has been resurrected and deployed successfully in a number of large-scale environments with quite amazing results.

As a result, LANreveal is now available as a production-ready solution! If you have a requirement to understand your network traffic better, or you have outdated and poorly understood firewall configurations, then LANreveal can be used to quickly and easily regain understanding and control of your network.

You can rely on LANreveal (and it's sister product LANmapper) to prevent cyber threats, reduce risk exposure and demonstrate network compliance with regulations such as PCI:DSS, ISO27001, Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) etc...
