Is Security “Tool Sprawl” Your Hectic Reality?

The threat landscape is constantly evolving and so are the security systems designed to address it. More tools mean more security, right? If only that were true. Unfortunately, evaluating, upgrading, testing, and adding security systems places new demands on security and network operations. The challenges are especially acute when it comes to scaling out security deployments across your networks and data centers. Can your network security systems keep up as you upgrade your networks to 10G, 40G and 100G? Our IT network security visibility tools and software can.

Pervasive Security Visibility

Packet flow systems from NETSCOUT solve the problem of limited packet visibility by creating a unified packet plane that logically separates security systems from the network, thereby de-risking and streamlining your security deployments. nGenius Packet Flow Systems (PFS) are appliances that optimize the flow of packets from the network to the security monitoring systems.

They perform key flow management functions, such as speed conversion, aggregation, and load balancing, acting as a “traffic cop” and taking the load off your network security systems. At the same time, they ensure uninterrupted network and security monitoring in the event of a power loss or tool failure, so that traffic can be quickly rebalanced, all within one powerful IT network security visibility tool set.

The Need for IT Network Security & Visibility at Scale 

You need full packet visibility so that your IT network security monitoring systems can perform their job effectively. In order to achieve the highest efficiency, they should only be processing the traffic they are designed the see. Otherwise, precious processing resources are consumed by filtering or load-balancing the packets, before the security logic can be applied to them.
