vBroker Series

The vBroker Series provides you with flexible yet advanced network visibility by accessing, optimizing, and delivering traffic from multiple networks to multiple network monitoring and security tools – both passive and active (inline).

Featuring both fixed and modular configurations, vBrokers allow you to choose the technologies and hardware you need to get the right network visibility to all of your tools. Modular vBrokers enable you to deploy, swap, and scale ports and capabilities to keep pace with the network and all of your tools.

Policy-based triggers, health checks, and fail-open/fail-closed options for inline tools combine with filtering, traffic optimization, and other special features to provide redundancy and high availability for inline and out-of-band visibility.

Combined with the VSS-patented vMesh™ architecture, you get a flexible and scalable Unified Visibility Plane™ that gets your network monitoring and security infrastructure the data it needs to operate at its best.
