Government agencies of all sizes—federal, state, and local—leverage IT assets to deliver public services. Caught between a rapid increase in government-related IP traffic and constant pressure to do more with shrinking budgets and legacy infrastructures, the number of IT challenges at most government agencies has never been higher.

Because governments hold vast amounts of confidential information, they are also prime targets for increasingly advanced cyber attacks. Against a backdrop of increased risk (and operational complexity), more and more specialized tools are required for comprehensive security. Government IT teams are further tasked with pushing the limits of existing resources as network speeds accelerate, and users increase and demand better experiences.

VSS Monitoring solutions help government agencies:

  • Achieve complete network visibility, regardless of location, speed, or the applications streaming over the links
  • Test, deploy, and manage multiple inline tools with zero network downtime, while exposing threats hidden within encrypted traffic
  • Reduce the number of network analytics, security and WAN acceleration tools required for 100% network coverage
  • Extend the life of existing tools even as network speeds increase

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).
