D-Link Insight is a unique, cloud-based network management framework for the D-Link line of Web Smart switches that monitors client computer access to network resources based on identity and compliance with corporate policy. Insight-enabled switches bring enterprise level functionality to smaller environments. Leveraging Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP) technology, Insight gives administrators visibility into and control over their networks like never before without complex security servers.
Discovery and notification
D-Link Insight will track all the devices connected to the smart switch and list them by MAC, IP and switch port. Insight also provides alerts to notify you when new devices are found on the network. Each client device's operating system can also be fingerprinted.
Simple, automated configuration management creates a backup of the switch settings for easy restore. Return to the last known state or bring a new device online without cumbersome configuration.
Always know the status of your network through Insight alerting. Should one of your Web Smart switches go offline or reboot, you're immediately notified. No more guessing or waiting for an outage report. Configure smart list alerts to inform you when unexpected computers are discovered on the network.
