IntellaTap-VM software supports private cloud monitoring and insights
APCON, a leading provider of intelligent network visibility and security solutions, delivered its IntellaTap-VM to customers today. This latest advanced feature in APCON's TITAN centralized management application offers magnified visibility into VMware environments with support for vCenter 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5.
"The amount of virtual network traffic has increased significantly and administrators are seeing a growing visibility gap," said Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON.
IntellaTap-VM agents allow users to easily mirror and forward traffic of interest to security tools - meaning threats that were previously hidden in your VMware environment can now be found.
APCON's virtual agent IntellaTap-VM filters user-selectable virtual machine traffic, encapsulating and forwarding the packets to physical and virtualized network and security tools for forensics and analysis. The centralized management application, TITAN, communicates with VMware's vCenter and, with an easy-to-use point-and-click functionality, users can identify and activate TAP points within the virtual network.
The benefits of APCON's network visibility solution for VMware deployments include:
- 100% visibility of VM traffic
- Automatic deployment of IntellaTap-VM agents through vCenter
- Mirroring of traffic by port groups
- Tunneling capability
- Filtering packets (to eliminate unwanted traffic) for analysis tool optimization
- vMotion support providing constant visibility of VM movements
