Preventing failures is much more effective than repairing them, especially when it comes down to providing a reliable and secure data environment to customers. With proper visibility into your network, you can capture the data you need to prevent costly outages. Network packet brokers provide comprehensive network visibility solutions for monitoring networks. The final goal of a visibility architecture is to be able to capture data smartly at regular intervals for troubleshooting or any other monitoring needs.
