Strategic packet visibility for the connected world

You need unified visibility that allows multiple IT groups to access packet flows without creating disruptions. With NETSCOUT products, there is no off. That’s why you need the ability to make dynamic connections from any TAP point in your network to any tool.

Inline Security and Threat Detection Systems

As your traffic volume grows, 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 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.

Eliminate Disruption to Traffic or Protocol Transactions

By combining industry-leading NETSCOUT nGenius packet flow switch, passive TAP, and our highly flexible nGenius PFS management platform, we simplify traffic acquisition and distribution for diverse network traffic operations, including performance management, service delivery management, and security monitoring. Our robust family of 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.

Strategic Packet Visibility

The packet flow switch architecture enables strategic packet visibility that scales and operates dynamically, enabling pervasive visibility through the use of NETSCOUT's InfiniStream appliances, part of the nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform, or security systems, regardless of infrastructure modifications or changes in the source of network traffic. With packet flow switches from NETSCOUT, enterprise service assurance and monitoring tools can be physically anywhere and logically everywhere.

Active Security:

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.
