Ixia, a Keysight Business, Delivers Complete Visibility into All Traffic in Virtual Workloads in Private Cloud Environments


CloudLens offers East-West traffic visibility without requiring
hypervisor access

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced Cloud
Sensor vTap
, a new feature of CloudLens
from Ixia, a Keysight Business. Cloud Sensor vTap enables organizations
to better manage their security risk in private and hybrid cloud
environments, such as Microsoft Azure Stack, with comprehensive
visibility into East-West traffic without requiring hypervisor access.

The rapid increase in cloud adoption has heightened the need for
securing data, applications, and workloads that reside in any
cloud-based environment. In fact, in a recent Ixia survey, Lack
of Visibility Drives Public Cloud Security Risk
1, 82
percent of IT professionals indicated they are concerned with security
and data privacy in the private cloud.

"Private cloud environments, in which access to the underlying
hypervisor platform and virtual switches is not possible, present unique
visibility challenges," said Scott Register, vice president of product
management at Keysight's Ixia Solutions Group. "Organizations have a
limited view of virtualized network traffic which creates network blind
spots for virtual or physical datacenter security, monitoring, and
analytics tools. Cloud Sensor vTap delivers the visibility needed into
incoming and outgoing traffic from a particular virtual workload,
significantly improving overall security of private and hybrid cloud

Ixia CloudLens, with the new Cloud Sensor vTap, is a comprehensive
visibility solution for virtual network traffic in private clouds,
offering customers visibility into their east/west network traffic in
environments where the administrator has no hypervisor access -- to
virtually tap (vTap) or capture, filter and forward a copy network
traffic directly to either tools or a network packet broker. CloudLens
also includes a new management platform for sensors, the CloudLens
Sensor Management Platform (CSMP). Coupled with the CloudLens Manager
for integrated and easy management, sensors can be deployed on premises,
even in security tight environments without Internet access.
