Problem: The fight against the invisible threats
What network managers cannot see, they cannot fight. Threats carefully hidden in encrypted traffic can easily bypass security controls and the watchful eye of IT teams. Application bandwidth explosions with the sudden and rapid expansion of a new or unknown application can go undetected until they threaten the availability and health of the network.
There are ways to amplify these issues, but they often require a complicated mix of tools to gain complete visibility into all the traffic and applications on a network. Managing a myriad of security and performance monitoring solutions can compromise network performance.
Solution: Visibility intelligence strengthens network security and optimizes performance
Ixia Vision ONE™ is a turnkey device that enables organizations to maintain security as well as identify and resolve performance problems across physical and virtual infrastructures from a single platform. Whether fighting against threats hidden in encrypted traffic, or feeding the right data to the right forensic solution, Vision ONE boosts network protection without negatively impacting performance.
Build a layered defense with a combination of best-of-breed inline security and out-of-band analysis tools, or create a strong foundation that helps you understand what is happening in an enterprise network. Either way, Vision ONE is a crucial step toward complete network security.Aided by integrated AppStack capabilities, Ixia's Vision ONE network packet broker (NPB) enables you to filter and visualize not only Level 2-4 traffic, but also Layer 7 application traffic, so that suspicious applications can be tagged and watched.
This provides security advantages as users can quickly spot rogue applications or unusual activity, including traffic or packets coming or going from unauthorized geographies, or questionable file transfer protocol (FTP) transfers conducted on sensitive data in the middle of the night.This capability alone would have short-circuited some of the most notorious data breaches suffered by enterprises and agencies in the past three years.
The integrated AppStack capabilities also offers performance advantages as customers can view real-time application level traffic and metadata through a web application program interface (API), or it can be filtered, decrypted, and sent onto forensic or application monitors for further inspection.Vision ONE is the most critical piece of network infrastructure you never realized you needed.
1 RU Supports Ixia Fabric Controller (IFC) - a highly resilient and extremely easy to use SDN controller providing visibility management through a single pane of glass.
Ixia's Active SSL capability, an addition to its SecureStack feature set, enables organizations to see inside traffic that uses ephemeral key cryptography. Ixia's Active SSL can be used both inline and out-of-band, for outbound and inbound traffic and simultaneously with NetStack, PacketStack and AppStack capabilities.
The Active SSL capability will be available via a high-performance application module that is compatible with Vision ONE™. With a dedicated cryptographic processor, it provides the best throughput integrated with a visibility solution. Moreover, it includes built-in policy management, URL categorization, support for all leading ciphers and reporting.
