Are users complaining “the network is slow?” Or “Skype isn’t working?” Is your security team chasing too many false positives? Will your data center investment produce the return on investment (ROI) your executive e-staff expects? Stronger applications, tighter security, and higher returns on your IT investment all hinge on being able to see inside your network. Only with total visibility across your physical and virtual networks can your teams—and your tools—make exactly the right decisions at exactly the right time.
This online gaming company is a premier developer and publisher of entertainment software. By focusing on creating well-designed, highly enjoyable entertainment, the company has maintained an unparalleled reputation for quality since its inception. The network is at the heart of their business. Last year the company reported customers spent as much time online with their games as other viewers spent watching Netflix. The company was supporting huge volumes of traffic, and planning for more. Throughout 2015 they had searched extensively for the right network packet broker (NPB) to complete their networking and application monitoring solution. Having selected the TruView Application Monitoring tool, the company trialed multiple NPB’s, but nothing had met their complete needs.

Ixia can not only improve, but also simplify, your troubleshooting activities by using context-aware processing to analyze and report on your application data. The Ixia solution contains additional information including geolocation, browser type, device type, BGP Autonomous System numbers for ISPs, and other information. Instead of attempting to “find the needle in the haystack” within all of your web traffic, the metadata provided by Ixia helps you to rapidly and uniquely identify suspicious traffic or activity and drill down to see defining characteristics that reveal further insight on network impairments. Ixia was first to market with these metadata capabilities in 2014 and we have continued to enhance these capabilities to deliver actionable intelligence
The modern application is complex. We know because at Ixia, we have been testing equipment, networks, and applications for decades. As an enterprise, you rely on your development teams to have depth of knowledge across a wide range of technology areas that includes application and threat vulnerabilities. Tracking the latest message board alerts—from the operating system, to the software development environment, to threat and connectivity attack methods— requires multiple focused teams. You have one team and it is under constant pressure to fix bugs faster to meet delivery schedules. But you have a failsafe way to make sure apps rushed to completion do not introduce vulnerabilities…right?
When it comes to security, the industry focuses primarily on layers of defense against cyber-attacks. While a good defense is essential, it crumbles under pressure when not balanced with a good offense. Testing and training against realistic loads and cyberattacks before a product or service is deployed uncovers performance and security issues early. Prevent attacks from occurring in the first place and your operational costs will drop. Discovering vulnerabilities at earlier stages is much less expensive for both your products and your business.
Ixia’s BreakingPoint Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) Program is a comprehensive service and support program for optimizing and hardening the resiliency of IT infrastructures that includes product updates, authentic application protocols, real-world security attacks, and responsive support.
