ATLANTA, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Asankya, Inc., the application delivery leader for network-intensive applications, announced today the issuance by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office of a patent for network monitoring which allows for greater efficiency and flexibility in capturing network traffic information.
U.S. Patent No. 7,742,404 relates to the monitoring of network traffic. Asankya's solution differs from conventional network monitoring, which allows only limited flexibility in choosing what type of traffic is captured and subsequently analyzed.

The innovative Asankya approach equips cloud service providers with a more secure network while accurately measuring network traffic and capacity, allowing greater efficiency for auditing and billing.

"This patent award recognizes Asankya's unique selective monitoring method of a variety of network properties including throughput, delay and loss at different configurable granularities. Moreover, it provides service providers with a rich but simple interface to specify what aspects of the network they are interested in monitoring."
