According to a new press release, “NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., a leading provider of business assurance, a powerful combination of service assurance, cybersecurity, and business intelligence solutions, today announced new security capabilities on the nGenius® 5000 series packet flow switch, its open compute-based packet broker platform. Today, IT and security teams often use disparate products to achieve security and service assurance visibility, which results in high capital expenditures and silos of visibility. The newly-available inline security functionality from NETSCOUT addresses these challenges by providing network professionals with a common, unified packet acquisition plane that is both software-driven and cost-effective.”
The release goes on, “As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to connect more and more devices and systems to networks, the need for pervasive security visibility is more critical, requiring scalability and potentially increasing cost. To address these challenges, the nGenius 5000 packet flow switches provide the smart and cost-effective data acquisition layer needed for today’s distributed networks. Built on open compute-based hardware with software-based packet broker functionality, the nGenius 5000 packet flow switches enable economies of scale, while keeping costs down. Adding active security capabilities enables organizations to address their security risks in both passive and active modes with a unified architecture. With support for 100Gbps inline security, nGenius enables even the most data-intensive inline security applications.”
