ProtectWise and Ixia Announce Integration Partnership

Posted 07/17/2017

  Strategic Alliance will Deliver Unparalleled Visibility across Mixed and Multi-Cloud Environments

DENVER, CO AND CALABASAS, CA, July 17, 2017ProtectWise™, the enterprise security company that delivers pervasive visibility, automated threat detection, and unlimited forensic exploration, and Ixia, a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions, today announced an integration partnership that will offer enterprises a comprehensive solution for end-to-end visibility across enterprise, mixed cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

ProtectWise delivers a new utility model for enterprise security. With The ProtectWise Grid, analysts get automated detection of advanced attacks, and the ability to intuitively interact with massive volumes of security data through an advanced visual presentation — transforming how enterprises handle complex threats with security delivered entirely from the cloud.

“Moving enterprise workloads to the cloud can create stumbling blocks for security teams, as they no longer have the network packet visibility needed to be effective,” said Ramon Peypoch, Chief Product Officer at ProtectWise. “Ixia CloudLens helps ProtectWise solve this problem by providing full, easy, and highly scalable visibility in the public cloud. The joint Ixia and ProtectWise solution also provides automated threat detection and unlimited forensic exploration.”

The Ixia CloudLensTM platform provides visibility across all cloud environments - public, private, and hybrid clouds. CloudLens is able to tap, filter, process, and manipulate traffic all in a private cloud environment, while also being able to addresses cloud security needs through a secure, intelligent visibility platform that leverages metadata tags and is built as a cloud-native SaaS with a serverless architecture.

“CloudLens simplifies capture of network traffic from public cloud, virtual, or physical environments and delivers it seamlessly to The ProtectWise Grid,” said Scott Westlake, Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategic Alliances at Ixia.  “Through this integration, ProtectWise and Ixia offer security professionals pervasive visibility across all of their network environments.”

ProtectWise and Ixia will hold a joint webinar to deliver an overview of the joint solution’s capabilities for customers on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET. Sign up and learn more at
