Managing & Optimizing Data FlowOptimize data flow and maintain network flexibility
Empower security and performance monitoring tools
Network security breaches and performance issues on critical applications give companies plenty of reasons to monitor their networks. To get a complete overview of the network, there are many points in the architecture where the traffic needs to be accessed; for example: at the client, on the network infrastructure, at the edge, in the data center, and in the cloud.
In many cases, however, this results in many more TAP connections than the monitoring tools can handle. This is where Network Packet Brokers provide an extra layer to the monitoring platform, which helps aggregate and distribute the right traffic to the right tools efficiently.
Network Packet Brokers are placed between the monitoring and security tools and network TAPs or mirror/SPAN ports. They orchestrate the traffic coming from multiple network links and can perform advanced, intelligent traffic management to ensure that monitoring tools receive the appropriate packet data. Deploying a Network Packet Broker adds a layer of intelligence to optimize the monitoring architecture and increase the performance of monitoring and security tools.
Network Packet Brokers help you:
- Obtain complete visibility into your physical and virtual networks
- Reduce cost and complexity by streamlining data for monitoring and security tools with advanced filtering capabilities
- Enhance the utilization and productivity of security and monitoring tools for better ROI
- Easily scale out your network infrastructure with the flexibility to deploy or upgrade your tools efficiently as your network grows
