In traditional data centers, IT teams can access the racks and stacks of servers to feed their tools with packet traffic from physical TAP and SPAN ports. In the on-premises world, cables and tables connect the systems we need with the tools we trust.
The public cloud has changed all that. New resources, services, and network architectures are available that significantly increase speed and availability while making configurations to adapt to changes in resource demand dynamically. All this power comes at a cost. The fact that the cloud is virtual has eliminated the network intersections we used to monitor. It is no longer possible to install physical TAPs, SPANs mirrors and packet brokers needed to feed packet traffic to the security tools, and applications. As a result, the teams in charge of protecting the network and its resources are starved of the packet traffic they require.
The business impact of moving to the cloud without a viable solution leaves organizations with limited options:
1) Move to the cloud without critical visibility. The can impact the business by adding significant risk or falling out of compliance etc.
2) Build solutions in-house or implement a vendor patchwork created to enable cloud migrations.
3) Prolong cloud migration to identify, wait for and implement a viable solution and thus slowing down the business from reaping cloud benefits.
No matter which route organizations pursue, it is likely that there is a significant loss of ROI on current network monitoring, application monitoring, and security monitoring tools that are no longer feasible with the move to the cloud.
Nubeva Prisms is intended for CIOs and CISOs overseeing Networking, DevOps and cloud security, and their technical staffs of cloud architects, security teams and tool owners who need to direct cloud traffic to traffic monitoring and analysis tools. Nubeva Prisms is the most advanced, easiest to use, and most affordable solution to get cloud packets to monitoring tools and services, enabling superior visibility and control for cloud operations.
Nubeva Prisms integrates with Azure’s VTAP architecture through Prism Services Processor. This unique integration enhances VTAP capabilities, allowing traffic to be concentrated from multiple VTAPs and multiplexed to various tools, allowing intelligent filtering, reducing traffic duplication and optimizing bandwidth utilization. Nubeva Prisms can also connect directly between sources of traffic and destination tools.
