Addressing Monitoring, Access, and Control Challenges in a Virtualized Environment

Today, network traffic between Virtual Machines (VMs) is skyrocketing past predictions, while network administrators continue to lag in terms of visibility and control of that inter-VM communication. As this traffic soars to more than 50 percent of all traffic on the network, the security and compliance challenges raised by lack of visibility into the virtualized environment have become acute. The financial and legal consequences of this visibility deficit are severe and of long duration, with a...

TAPs Overview: The Start of Visibility

Change is coming to networks faster than ever before.

NETCONF Integration with Net Optics

What's your SDN story? This is a question that I hear more and more recently. Here's the short version of my answer: Net Optics NPB devices are located between the network elements and the different monitoring / security tools. As such, they are typically not involved in switching or forwarding decisions. However, we felt that there is a need to change the static nature of configuration and provide a method to respond to networking changes in a better way, by providing SDN integration. That's th...
