A Fail-Safe Inline Security Tool Platform
Problem: The balance between security and availability
Organizations need the right mix of security tools to proactively block threats. But deploying multiple inline tools in production networks increases the risks of outages and failure. All it takes is for a single inline tool to break down, and the network becomes instantly unavailable, resulting in business interruption, poor productivity, and lost revenue. To reduce security vulnerabilities and still protect the bottom line, organizations need to find a reliable way to balance security tool infrastructure with business availability.
Solution: A broker for high-speed network traffic
Ixia xStream is a powerful network visibility platform that lets IT organizations safely deploy inline security solutions while protecting network and business availability. xStream hosts a complete recovery and scalability mechanism for troubleshooting issues with inline deployments, and it automatically reroutes traffic should a tool break down, ensuring network and business continuity. xStream also saves money, because a network outage can cost thousands of dollars per minute. Moreover, by aggregating, filtering, and load balancing traffic to inline tools, xStream provides a scalable inline tool infrastructure and enhanced security.
