As your networks and traffic volumes grow, so too should your readiness to respond to issues as they arise.
The NETSCOUT nGenius® packet flow switch (PFS) and TAPs family enables multiple IT groups to aggregate, replicate, and manage the flows of traffic throughout the monitoring network, whether it’s for application performance monitoring, unified communications (UC), or security. Traffic management and security enablement capabilities ensure risk-free deployment of inline security and threat detection systems.
Inline packet flow switch deployments enable a pervasive defense architecture for inline and passive network protection.
In the ongoing race to stay ahead of advanced persistent threats and and continually improve cybersecurity posture and capabilities, organizations must take a proactive approach. NETSCOUT packet flow switches provide critical visibility to combinations of security solutions, such as inline network protection and passive out-of-band intrusion detection appliances, as well as active payload analysis offerings.
PFS systems, in an active-protection deployment, increase reliability and simplify scale out. If any active inline security applications fail, they may be bypassed or traffic can be sent to another system. A unified visibility plane enables you to implement multiple security systems and create a pervasive defense architecture against a broad range of attacks.
Inline or passive decryption gives visibility in the face of pervasive encryption.
Purpose-built decryption/encryption provides low latency, high performance visibility into encrypted traffic. Inline and passive deployment models give architectural flexibility while supporting the latest encryption standards.
Simplify traffic acquisition and distribution for diverse network monitoring applications including performance management, service delivery management, and security monitoring.
By combining industry-leading NETSCOUT nGenius packet flow switches, passive and bypass TAPs, and our highly flexible nGenius PFS management platform, NETSCOUT simplifies traffic acquisition and distribution for diverse network monitoring applications including performance management, service delivery management, and security monitoring. Our robust family of passive TAPs provides InfiniStream appliances (powered by Adaptive Service Intelligence® (ASI) technology) and nGenius packet flow switches with full access to network traffic, while remaining transparent to the networking infrastructure and eliminating disruption to traffic or protocol transactions.
