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 datacenters. Can your security systems keep up as you upgrade your networks to 10G, 40G and 100G?

Security-optimized, Hardware-accelerated Performance

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 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 security systems. At the same time, they ensure uninterrupted monitoring in the event of a power loss or tool failure, so that traffic can be quickly rebalanced.

The Need for Security Visibility at Scale

You need full packet visibility, so that your security 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.

nGenius Packet Flow Systems

nGenius Packet Flow System appliances perform advanced functions in hardware, rather than on a CPU, which can  limit throughput and introduces variable latency. With the NETSCOUT solution, your monitoring systems will see the exact same traffic that comes in—without packet drops or extra latency.

  • The industry’s highest capacity for passive security monitoring—with 6TB of line-rate throughput per chassis

  • Scalability  from 1G to 100G, delivering the highest density on the market in either 100G, 40G, 10G or 1G ports

  • For active (inline) monitoring, full application health checks and conditional triggers ensure that your security systems perform as designed and that your monitoring infrastructure can automatically respond to any contingencies.

  • nGenius software-based tool chaining allows you to place your security systems into a customizable virtual chain. This reduces the port requirement by 50 percent, freeing up ports to connect more systems.
