* Feature included with every vBroker, Distributed, vProtector, and Finder Series models
The vBroker™ Seriesprovides network-wide visibility by accessing, capturing, and brokering traffic from one or more full-duplex networks to multiple passive network monitoring and/or active security tools. Policy-based triggers, health checks, and fail-open / fail-closed configurability combine with filtering, grooming and load balancing to provide redundancy and high availability for in-band and out-of-band visibility.
VSS vBroker modular appliances solve a variety of network-related IT challenges in your network and data centers, including improving the link-layer visibility and data access of monitoring and security tools, accelerating the time to diagnose performance problems and security incidents, and making sure CapEx and OpEx costs remain stable as network size and speeds grow.
With VSS' visionary vMesh™ approach to architecture, you get the flexibility and modularity to deploy just the appliances you need with the ability to scale link-layer visibility and data access to a system-level architecture with over 250 devices and 10,000 ports globally. The business benefits include more flexible capital requirements, higher tool utilization and ROI, and lower operating costs.
