Visibility For Security

IXIA Visibility for Security

IXIA Visibility Architecture

Total Network Visibility is Key to Strong Security

You can't secure what you can't see. That's why IXIA's solution for network security relies on a visibility platform that provides 100% data access to traffic flowing on any network segment--physical, virtual, or cloud--at any speed.

IXIA's powerful packet processing engine pinpoints exactly the right traffic using context-awareness derived from packet details and delivers it to your security solutions at high speed. Integrated security intelligence lets you screen out known malware and other attacks. And IXIA's high-availablity security resilience makes sure active monitoring persists, even during an inline device failure. 

Make sure your security architecture is supported with total network visibility from IXIA.


IXIA Advantages for Security Monitoring

  • Data Access

  • Security Resilience

  • Context Awareness

  • Security Intelligence

IXIA Security Architecture

Data Access Anywhere

You want access to data everywhere it exists in your network, not just where a network switch is located. With a combination of fiber, copper, and virtual TAPs, IXIA provides you with 100% access to physical, virtual, public and private cloud traffic with higher reliability than using only SPAN ports. And even during high-volume traffic conditions, IXIA gives your security and monitoring tools total visibility to network traffic, with zero packet loss.

Security Resilience

You need failsafe security to maximize your defences and protect network availablility. Whether you experience a hardware or software failure, or just need to take a tool offline for maintenance, IXIA bypass switches can route traffic around a security solution that is unavailable or route traffic to an alternate device. With the industry's fastest near-instant recovery, IXIA ensures your security infrastructure operates continuously.

Context Aware Filtering

IXIA uses a powerful, hardware-based processing engine to send the right data to the right tools, at line rate speed. Since sending every packet to every tool is inefficient, AppStack functionality in IXIA network packet brokers lets you filter packets based on geography, browser, end-point device, application, or any other chosen parameter. This helps you isolate issues and more quickly apply a solution to limit potential damage and resolve issues.

Security Intelligence Processing

IXIA helps you keep your defenses strong with unique security features. SecureStack functionality provides active or passive SSL decryption to offload your security tools and help them work more efficiently. PacketStack functionality supports compliance by masking sensitive information like credit card and social security numbers. In addition, IXIA offers a hardware-based threat intelligence solution that blocks traffic from IP addresses associated with malware, viruses, and other attacks, so it never even enters your network.
