AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/13 --  SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a
leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software,
today announced enhanced security updates to SolarWinds User Device
Tracker (UDT), one of the industry's only standalone device tracking
and switch port management solutions.  
SolarWinds UDT allows IT professionals to quickly identify all
network devices, track historic device locations, perform automatic
network discovery, produce a comprehensive list of switches and
ports, and map logical connections. In addition, SolarWinds UDT
features customizable reports and simple, do-it-yourself deployment.  
SolarWinds UDT now includes two new features that aid in actively
managing and mitigating security risks on a network. Whitelisting now
allows IT pros to define a list of safe devices based on MAC address,
IP address or host name, and receive an alert when a rogue device not
on the list connects to the network. Port shutdown enables IT pros to
remotely shut down a compromised port with point-and-click simplicity
while the event is audited. 
SolarWinds User Device Tracker Highlights: 

--  Network device tracking: Search by MAC address, IP address or host
    name to quickly find a device and retrieve the switch name, port, port
    description, VLAN, and more
--  Network user tracking: Retrieve user connection details, including
    switch name or access point, port or SSID, and host name; view current
    and historical logins; and more
--  Watch list: Create a list of devices or users and receive alerts when
    they connect to the network
--  Automated switch port discovery and mapping: Map and monitor switch
    ports by ports used, CPU load, memory used, and more
