White paper: Definitive Guide to Complete Network Visibility
Unless you have taken a close look at network packet brokers recently, you are probably not aware of how rapidly they have evolved. In a few short years, network packet brokers designed to help network administrators monitor networks have morphed into next-generation network packet brokers (NGNPBs) that serve the needs of IT security groups, data analysts, network operations staffs and others.
They provide visibility into network traffic across the entire enterprise; make security tools more effective; help network and application management tools ensure reliable performance; overcome concerns about security visibility in the cloud; save millions of dollars in hardware and software costs; help service providers slash monitoring costs to increase average profitability per user; and help enterprises take advantage of virtualisation and cloud platforms such as VMware NSX, Cisco ACI, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and OpenStack.
The goal of this guide is to give you a short, clear introduction to NGNPBs and all the capabilities you didn’t know they had.
