The directive for many IT departments is to be part of the business innovation process. How do you innovate? The average IT team spends more than half of their day just on problem resolution or network security issues.
Network visibility starts at the foundation of your network. It allows you to expose and resolve hidden problems (blind spots) faster. Faster resolution times mean more TIME to innovate the network design and the applications running on top of it.
Improve Network Visibility
Better network visibility delivers the highest performance data access and data distribution to your monitoring and security appliances.
Learn how easy it is to innovate your inline security and out-of-band network visibility.
Network Visibility for Enterprises
The new business environment demands IT support for a wider range of monitoring, security, and compliance requirements. This creates significant burdens on network performance and network security as more appliances need access to incoming data.
- Improve the security of your network
- Decrease troubleshooting costs and time
- Satisfy regulatory compliance initiatives
Network Visibility for Service Providers
Service Providers need clear visibility into their networks. Questions like these arise daily:
- Where are traffic bottlenecks?
- Why are applications running slow?
- Do I have a security problem?
These are serious questions that need quick and complete answers. See how the deployment of a visibility architecture can eliminate network blind spots to give you the answers you need.
Are you an expert on network monitoring terminology?
If not, learn what all the terms mean. Becoming an expert is easier than you think. In fact, it is as simple as the ABC's of Network Visibility.
Network Visibility Use Cases
Once you see what network visibility can do, you will discover lots of use cases where it can be applied. While not all solutions apply to every network, every enterprise should be able to find at least one.
Look at these general categories to see where visibility solutions can change business outcomes:
- Improve network security
- Provide cost reduction capabilities
- Speed up troubleshooting efforts
- Remove network blind spots
- Optimize network performance
- Strengthen regulatory compliance initiatives
Architecting For Network Visibility
When selecting a visibility architecture, performance matters.
Measure for yourself why we are the industry leader in network packet broker performance.
4X Better Performance
If you had a choice between one processor and two, which would you pick? Our network packet brokers have four times higher performance because we use a high-performance FPGA to make sure you never drop a packet.
8X Easier to Use
Would you rather program every connection one at a time or drag and drop them? What if one way was much faster and much less prone to mistakes? Find out how:
Zero Packet Loss
Would you be worried if your network packet broker was dropping packets? You should put yours to the test because many customers are discovering their current visibility solution is not keeping up.
Will you still be protected if your security infrastructure suffers a temporary outage? Or be able to upgrade without service disruption? Make sure security and monitoring tools can recover from unexpected disruptions with the industry's fastest failover.
You buy a full-featured network packet broker because of its rich feature set. You should ensure that you can run simultaneous features since some packet brokers do not allow that. Ixia network packet brokers give you the flexibility and choice to select and deploy the features you want and need.
Frost & Sullivan Global Market Leadership
