How to get complete and unrestricted traffic visibility and control - Beyond your wifi, firewall or SD-WAN equipment
Complement any network, cloud and security project with an overlay stack for unfettered traffic visibility & control.
Understanding what’s running on the network is all about having the right perspective. A visibility & control function designed to do just that, which has no boundaries of where and what it can see and can process enormous amounts of traffic to present in realtime (every second), provides what’s required for complete and unfettered visibility to not only solve problems and provide a great user experience but to mitigate risk, assess productivity, provide continuous insightful analytics and enable an agile IT organisation.
Visibility as a feature inside a network appliance like a firewall or router, is designed in the context of the appliance’s primary function and limited by design. Traffic visibility inside a firewall is security-centric and provides a specific perspective. Layer 3+ devices, devices which are not transparent to the network, like routers & firewalls, are limited in where they can be deployed and what they can see. Security and connectivity equipment are complex and typically part of big projects (Cisco & Palo Alto seeking change). Agile IT organisations don’t wait for the next firewall, telco and equipment refresh and hope for a better performing network. Speed is a weapon.
Abstracting the traffic visibility & control function from the connectivity and security functions enables a more agile IT organisation. Similar to the recent abstraction of the control plane from the data plane for networking, it enables ubiquitous visibility and control regardless of connectivity and security equipment. While in the physical world this abstraction translates to dedicated appliances for each function, in virtual networking, where we’re all headed, it’s about best of breed functions.
Sinefa’s dedicated visibility function is dead simple, offers complete coverage, high granularity best of breed technology and will complement all security, connectivity & cloud solutions. It’s for the agile IT organisation which is embracing the cloud, is distributed, is mobile, is dynamic and wants to adapt fast. To thrive in today’s IT , speed is a weapon - act now.
