You Can't Secure What You Can't See
Most organizations use cloud in some way, shape, or form. However, while the cloud offers unparalleled flexibility, agility, and scale, it is not without its challenges. Monitoring east-west traffic is notoriously difficult — creating critical blind spots. As network perimeters vanish and attackers grow more sophisticated, a lack of cloud visibility not only impacts your ability to monitor network security, compliance, and performance, it can leave you exposed to data breaches and other costly security vulnerabilities.
When visibility matters most, organizations worldwide trust CloudLens to help them monitor and protect their public, private, and hybrid clouds. With platform-agnostic architecture, containers/Kubernetes compatibility, and turnkey integration with leading security, application performance management (APM), and network performance management (NPM) tools, you can count on CloudLens to secure your most critical vulnerabilities by delivering wide-ranging, actionable intelligence to the right tools at the right time.
Different Deployments Offer Maximum Flexibility
Software as a Service
An ideal solution for public, private, or hybrid cloud environments, CloudLens SaaS offers a flexible cloud-based visibility platform that scales as your network grows.
CloudLens SaaS boasts a user-friendly management platform that minimizes user error and subscription-based billing that lets you pay only for what you need. It intelligently accesses, filters, and forwards packet data directly to your tools — reducing risk without costly architectural changes or compromises to your security and performance monitoring.
If you prefer to keep things in your own data center, CloudLens Self-Hosted enables comprehensive visibility into traffic between virtual machines (VMs).
Advanced packet processing capabilities, including NetStack, PacketStack, and AppStack, mean you'll have no shortage of options for managing your data. So whether you're using CloudLens Self-Hosted to virtually process packet data or to backhaul traffic directly to a physical network packet broker (NPB), you get maximum flexibility and effectiveness.

Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Monitor Any Cloud
Experience Complete Packet-Level Visibility into Your Public Cloud Environments with CloudLens SaaS
While public clouds offer increased elasticity, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, it is easy to forget that security is a shared responsibility between you and your cloud service provider. Without packet-level cloud visibility, your tools are powerless to prevent performance problems or secure vulnerable blind spots.
When visibility matters most, CloudLens SaaS gives you complete access to packet data in your public cloud. Moreover, it is compatible with all major service providers, so you can rest easy knowing your tools have the data they need to protect your cloud.
Get Maximum Flexibility for Private Cloud Monitoring with CloudLens Self-Hosted or CloudLens SaaS
Private clouds give your users faster access to applications and services. But a lack of access to inter-VM traffic risks hampering your security, APM, and NPM tools with vulnerable blind spots.
No matter your hypervisor, CloudLens gives you ultimate flexibility when it comes to monitoring your private cloud. Choose either CloudLens SaaS for pay-as-you-go versatility or CloudLens Self-Hosted, which gives you a perpetually licensed solution deployed in your own data center.
Monitor Traffic Across Your Hybrid Cloud with CloudLens SaaS
Both public and private clouds have their merits. That's why many organizations utilize both. These hybrid cloud implementations maximize versatility, however many solutions cannot capture packets in both public and private clouds without complex and costly workarounds.
Hybrid clouds demand a seamless, stress-free visibility solution. With CloudLens SaaS, you can access crucial packet data without the headaches. Compatible with most major public, and private clouds, its easy-to-use management platform simplifies packet capture and saves valuable time.
