Niagara Networks Presenting at Netnod Stockholm, March 2018 achieving network visibility network packet broker tap bypass active passive data securityAs part of Netnod Meeting March 2018, André Vink — Senior Sales Engineer EMEA and India for Niagara Networks — delivered a session exploring “Network Visibility in Datacenter and Provider Networks”. In the session, André walked through the basics of how to gain pervasive visibility in your network. André’s presentation also highlighted  how SDN functionality within the visibility management layer can facilitate flexible allocation of resources and allow optimized utilization of security tools. In addition, André demonstrated how Niagara Networks’ visibility devices can be further enhanced using Niagara Networks Packetron module, which uses hardware accelerated packet processing. This allows the visibility nodes (especially the bypasses and the packet brokers) to perform extra manipulations on the data flow.

For example: It can handle deduplication, packet slicing and netflow generation and aggregation. Allowing your visibility devices to perform such functions allows better utilization of the capacity of security tools that are more “real-time savvy”.
