Ixia Brings Application and Threat Intelligence to Network Visibility
Visibility Architecture enhancements provide enterprises real-time insight into applications and security events
CALABASAS, CA — December, 2014 — Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) announced enhancements to its network visibility product portfolio, which extends the capabilities of its Visibility Architecture™. With the latest releases incorporating Ixia’s Application and Threat Intelligence, comprehensive solutions come together to meet the needs of enterprises for simplified and actionable network insight.
In an increasingly dynamic environment, network administrators are striving for complete network visibility. This level of awareness requires a robust visibility architecture that is able to apply context and correlation to network applications incorporating factors such as user location, granular application action, operating system, browser, and handset type across physical- and virtual-source traffic. The addition of these capabilities to Ixia’s Visibility Architecture marks a significant advancement in the tools that IT professionals can leverage to better understand the application performance and security implications of network events.
Updates to Ixia’s Visibility Architecture include:
- Application filtering technology – Using Ixia’s ATI Processor, administrators are able to select precise geo-tagged application traffic for forwarding to specific monitoring tools. File transfers to suspicious locations or VoIP connections from a branch office with performance problems can be automatically highlighted and directed to the appropriate tools for immediate analysis.
- New high-density platform – Ixia’s ATI Processor is available in the new NTO 6212 packet broker, which enhances Ixia’s NTO family with application brokering and NetFlow generation in an efficient 48-port 1U package.
- Advanced packet processing and 100G support – Ixia’s NTO 7300 now supports 100Gb interfaces and 1.8Tb of advanced processing (such as header stripping and deduplication), the highest capacity and density in the industry by a substantial margin.
- Monitoring of financial feeds – Ixia’s recent TradeView release allows for the monitoring of market data down to the channel level providing early warning of health issues with channel feeds that can save millions in revenue lost to trading errors.
“As the number of data sources and customer expectations for always-on access continue to rise, its imperative that IT professionals have the right tools to keep networks running securely and at optimal performance,” said Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst, Aberdeen Group. “To accomplish this, organizations must have visibility solutions that provide immediate insight into events in order to capture more accurate application and network data.”
“Application Intelligence is the next wave of network visibility, yielding deeper insight and faster resolution times,” said Scott Register, Senior Director, Product Management for Ixia. “Our recent advances demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with the most advanced, efficient and comprehensive visibility solution in the industry.”
