Fluke Networks has announced the new NetSecure option for the NetTool Series II inline network tester. The NetSecure option lets network technicians solve one of today's most frustrating problems by identifying rogue applications like spyware, adware and viruses during network connectivity and performance tests.

NetTool's new NetSecure option addresses this issue by testing for spyware, adware, and viruses while solving connectivity issues. According to Fluke, this eliminates wasted technician time using trial and error troubleshooting methods. NetSecure also reduces maintenance costs, by detecting rogue applications based on actual port behavior, not definitions or signatures which become outdated and require constant updates.

"The new NetSecure option is a powerful addition to the NetTool Series II," says Adam Welch, Fluke's marketing manager for termination and test tools. "It really showcases the value of solving problems during frontline testing. Technicians are able to fix problems faster with this handheld inline tester."

NetSecure is a software option that quickly loads into the NetTool Series II Inline Network Tester. NetTool is a handheld, front-line troubleshooting tool; its simple one-step NetProve test pinpoints problems so that technicians, regardless of skill level, can quickly and easily recognise the source of the problem. At the desktop level, it can quickly detect any cabling problems. For VoIP phones, it can be used to troubleshoot connectivity issues with its inline boot log, call quality metrics, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) detection capabilities. All test results can be saved and uploaded to assist in trouble ticket routing and resolution.
