I want to track my complete user activity, so I'm looking for a product to implement in the near future, which will have full integration with my network and active directory users.

All the monitoring is from inside out, we need something that also can give us from outside in.The pricing for this solution has gone up quite recently, which has led some of our customers to buy an alternative product.I would like to see better integration with switches so that you can see what is connected to each port, what the traffic is, and have a network map automatically generated.
