Scalable Deep Packet Inspection Provides Visibility Without Borders

Cybersecurity teams face daunting challenges of keeping up to date with increasingly sophisticated bad actors and a continuously evolving network environment and attack surface. Strategically deployed in any network environment (including public cloud), NETSCOUT CyberStream network security sensors use patented, highly scalable, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to convert raw packets into a rich source of layer 2-7 metadata that provide cybersecurity teams comprehensive network visibility and a rich source of data for better network detection and response (NDR).

Visibility Without Borders


Comprehensive Network Visibility

Support for any speed, protocol, physical, virtual, and cloud network environment provides continuous and comprehensive packet-level network visibility.

Advanced NDR

Scalable DPI tools and patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology convert raw packets into a rich source of layer 2 -7 metadata used for more advanced Network Detection and Response. 

Real-time & Historical Threat Detection

Intelligently indexed, compressed, and locally stored metadata and packets used for real-time and longer-term back-in-time investigations before, during, or after an attack occurred.

Cost-Effective Deployment


NETSCOUT offers four Certified Omnis CyberStream models as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software appliances, ideal for the various needs of your enterprise network environment.


NETSCOUT Qualified Omnis CyberStream Software Appliances are well-suited for those organizations standardizing on Dell or Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) server platforms in their data centers.

CyberStream Advantages


Omnis CyberStream network sensors, deployed in any type of network environment, continuously capture packets and in real-time using NETSCOUT’s patented Adaptive Service (ASI) technology, converts those packets into a robust source of layer 3 – 7 metadata called “Smart Data”

Integration with Omnis Cyber Intelligence

NETSCOUT Omnis Cyber Intelligence uses the packets and metadata stored on CyberStream sensors to conduct rapid real-time and historical threat detection and highly contextual investigations in the cybersecurity solution.

Continuous Packet Capture

CyberStream network security sensors continuously capture full packets (up to 100 Gbps) versus starting capture after a threat is detected, using packet slicing, or other forms of less robust network data.

Local Storage & Custom Analysis

NETSCOUT Smart Data is stored locally on CyberStream sensors (that have hundreds of terabytes of storage capacity) versus uploading to a cloud. Smart Data can be exported, combined, and enriched with other datasets and custom analysis.
