Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager (Brocade vTM) is a Layer 7 application delivery controller designed to deliver a faster, high performance user experience. Highly portable, Brocade vTM is ideal for hybrid environments, moving with your application as required.
Brocade vTM processes application traffic with full payload inspection and streaming. Optimization techniques can be applied so requests are presented in the most suitable manner to back-end servers. Responses can be compressed, cached and returned to the client at optimum speed, freeing up server resources. TrafficScript software controls how requests are optimized, routed and transformed.
Brocade Virtual Web Application Firewall (Brocade vWAF) adds a strong, scalable security perimeter around applications and third-party frameworks to guard against vulnerabilities, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting. It analyzes requests against the ruleset assigned to the application and decides whether to pass it or reject it. It monitors outgoing responses so sensitive information can be filtered out to ensure that data leakage is captured. The behaviour of the application and traffic patterns can be monitored to aid policy development.
