Overview

Network packet brokers (NPBs) filter traffic to send only the right data to the right tool. Packets are aggregated and filtered from Layer 2 through to the application layer. Duplicate packets can also be removed and sensitive content stripped before the data is sent to the monitoring tools if that is required. This provides a better solution to improve the efficiency and utility of your monitoring tools.

  • Aggregates monitored traffic from multiple links and segments
  • Deep packet inspection and filtering grooms traffic to relieve overburdened monitoring tools
  • Extended burst protection, available with the Advanced Feature Module, offers traffic management, and protection to online businesses subject to bursts of activity
  • Installs, configures, and sends clean traffic to appliances in less than thirty minutes
  • Time stamping and data masking aid in compliance and working with sensitive data
