The complexity of network IT within educational organizations continues to grow as students and staff use a variety of devices on campus. Ensuring network and application performance, while protecting student data and faculty research, and guarding against copyright infringement and malicious downloads are critical tasks for network and security management.

How can IT provide the flexibility and security that students and staff need, while remaining agile enough to support strategic and tactical projects?

With VSS Monitoring network packet broker (NPB) solutions, IT can easily manage growing complexity by optimizing network intelligence and security tools. In particular, the Unified Visibility Plane centralizes the access, optimization, and delivery of network data for security systems and performance management tools. This visibility plane eliminates management complexity and ensures each tool receives the right data at the right time at the right speed - maximizing efficiency, reducing mean time to repair (MTTR), and increasing return on investment (ROI).
