The RSA NetWitness Suite is designed to provide pre-emptive, proactive detection of known and unknown threats, and understands the full scope of a cyber attack across endpoints, networks, and the cloud.
“We’re pleased to see Ixia complete RSA Ready certification testing for a use case that will help enable our mutual customers to reduce operational costs, while improving network and data protection,” said Mike Adler, Vice President of Products for RSA.
Vision ONE boosts network protection without negatively impacting performance
Ixia’s Vision ONE enables organizations to maintain security as well as identify and resolve performance problems across physical and virtual infrastructures from a single platform. The solution directs traffic of interest to monitoring tools to relieve oversubscription, leverages tool investment across groups, and centralizes monitoring in the Security Operations Center (SOC). It simultaneously collects traffic feeds from important network segments through Ixia’s comprehensive line of network and virtual taps.
“The evolving challenges of cyber crime cannot be tackled without cooperation among security leaders,” stated Scott Westlake, Vice President of Business Development at Ixia. “Bringing RSA’s cyber security expertise to work with Ixia’s visibility solutions will facilitate the efficient and effective deployment of security risk management (SRM) projects for customers of all sizes.”
