ProtectWise + Ixia: 3 Things to Know When Securing Mixed, Multi-Cloud Environments
Enterprises cannot move to the cloud quickly enough. In fact, Gartner estimates that by 2020, “cloud-first” and “cloud-only” will be standard corporate policies rather than exceptions.
That’s a big problem for traditional security infrastructures. There’s a hodgepodge of disparate, disconnected security products that were not made to secure the cloud. Some vendors have “cloud-washed” their products, but these deliver questionable value. In real-world situations, these products perform poorly, lack critical functionality, and cannot provide the visibility time-strapped security teams require to be effective.
ProtectWise and Ixia make it easy to secure workloads in the cloud, including multi-cloud environments, in addition to traditional on-premises networks. Running entirely from the cloud, the ProtectWise Grid delivers pervasive visibility via automatic real-time and retrospective threat detection, long-term retention of full-fidelity packet capture (PCAP) and unlimited forensic exploration. Ixia CloudLens™ simplifies capture of network traffic from public cloud, virtual, or physical environments and delivers it to The ProtectWise Grid seamlessly. Through this integration, ProtectWise and Ixia give security teams a single solution for end-to-end visibility across heterogeneous public cloud, enterprise, and hybrid environments.
