Sniffer smells out network rats

Sniffer Technologies has released its new mid-range network performance package for small and medium businesses, Sniffer Investigator.

Sniffer Investigator runs on a laptop and features Expert analysis, filters and triggers, and protocol decodes from the major vendors such as Cisco, Microsoft and Novell.
