You can’t protect what you can’t see

The ability to supply security tools with reliable and accurate network traffic makes or breaks your cybersecurity posture. Without proper traffic visibility, you are essentially blind to potential threats and vulnerabilities on your network. For example, only forwarding NetFlow or SPAN traffic to security tools can result in missing information and unreliable results.

Our network observability solutions provide deep insight into network traffic, and the means to filter for actionable data, enabling your security tools to identify and mitigate threats at their best performance.

How does Profitap help?

Profitap helps businesses identify and prevent unwanted activity and anomalies on their networks by capturing every packet traversing the network, and sending optimized, actionable network insights to security appliances.

Our Network TAP and Network Packet Broker solutions provide real-time monitoring capabilities to security tools, allowing businesses to detect suspicious activity on their network promptly.

The IOTA platform offers advanced traffic capture and analysis capabilities that help establish baseline traffic patterns and detect any anomalies or deviations from those patterns. By capturing detailed packet-level data, our IOTA and ProfiShark solutions enable forensic analysis in the event of a security incident. This allows businesses to quickly identify the root cause of the issue and take appropriate action to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Profitap Network TAPs

Profitap Network TAPs are hardware devices that provide fail-safe access to the complete network traffic of the network connection in which they are deployed. Profitap TAPs offer a range of features, including high-speed and low-latency data capture, advanced filtering capabilities, and support for various network interfaces. These TAPs ensure that all network traffic is reliably forwarded to the next component in the solution stack.

  • Non-intrusive in-line network access to ALL data.
  • Permanent network link guaranteed.
  • Passive, unpowered (fiber).
  • Protect network link availability for in-line security tools.
  • Deliver lossless traffic aggregation from multiple in-line links or out-of-band connections (Booster series).

Network Packet Brokers (NPBs)

Network Packet Brokers are intermediaries between network TAPs and monitoring or security tools. They receive the captured network traffic from TAPs and optimize it before distributing it to the appropriate monitoring devices. NPBs provide traffic aggregation, filtering, load balancing, timestamping, and deduplication features. These capabilities optimize the utilization of monitoring tools and enhance scalability, allowing organizations to monitor network traffic efficiently.

  • High throughput.
  • Traffic optimization (Aggregation, Load Balancing, Filtering, Timestamping, Deduplication, SSL/TLS Decryption, etc.).
  • Flow-aware load balancing across multiple devices.
  • Centralized control.
