More mobile devices are now connecting to more data from more sources. IT challenges are complicated by increasingly high customer expectations for always-on access and immediate application response. This complexity creates network "blind spots" where latent errors germinate, and pre-attack activity lurks. Stressed-out monitoring systems make it hard, if not impossible, to keep up with traffic and filter data "noise" at a rate that they were not designed to handle. Network blind spots have become a costly and risk-filled challenge for network operators.


The answer to these challenges is a highly scalable visibility architecture that enables the elimination of your current blind spots, while providing resilience and control without added complexity

Includes physical and virtual taps, bypass switches, and full-featured network packet brokers that solve network visibility needs - from single-point solutions to large-scale enterprise and service provider network deployments.


Extends the life of existing IT tools investments and maximizes the usefulness of the current tool capacity.

Easily integrates into automated and software defined data centre environments.


Provides network visibility that is scalable in every sense of the word, from product, to portfolio, to design, to management and support.
