Network Packet Broker Week in Review
February 09, 2013
Network packet brokers can provide the high level of visibility needed by today’s enterprise in order to see every single action taking place within the corporate infrastructure. Not only will this highlight small issues before they can become major problems, but it will also help to thwart cyber attacks once and for all.
This week in the space, it was revealed that network packet brokers are an essential tool to firms these days. “One important factor is many-to-many port mapping, with a graphical user interface (GUI) or command line interface (CLI) for adjustments of packet flow. In addition, the filtering of packet data through variables found in packet headers is extremely important as well as packet slicing and deduplication. These let part of the full packet data be passed to a monitoring device. That improves efficiency,” a recent article revealed.
VSS Monitoring it touted as being a leader in this rapidly expanding space due to the systems-based approach it uses and its meshed technology that can scale up or down according to individual business requirements, while providing a much higher return on investment (ROI).
In other news, Anturis Inc. has officially unveiled the Anturis IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting solution that enables organizations to avoid downtime and the negative consequences that it can cause including lost profits, tarnishing a brand’s reputation, and even prompting customers to turn to a competing provider.
Free of charge for now at least, the robust solution is deal for small to medium-sized companies and is reportedly very easy to get set up and running.
Serguei Beloussov, Anturis co-founder, Parallels founder and chairman of the board said in a statement, “Today small and medium sized businesses are experiencing growing IT complexity, and we all know that if your network or online site is down you’re dead. However, many SMBs do not have dedicated teams to deal with this growing complexity. Anturis simply offers the solution that doesn't require an IT department.”

Closing out the week, Network Packet Broker Senior Editor Peter Bernstein unveiled a news worthy piece discussing that” vigilance must be both 24/7/365, proactive as well as reactive, and state-of-the-art. It is why creating a zero-day plan to protect from cyber attacks wherever they occur be they external or internal requires adding superior visibility, agility and resilience to augment and improve your network security fortifications. Not being current is an invitation for those who wish you harm to test your readiness and exploit your weaknesses.”
