Virtual Network Packet Broker | Data Monitoring Switch
Maximise network visibility
with our cost-efficient and innovative
virtual Network Packet Broker platform!
With our Network Packet Broker product family NEOXPacketTiger you do not compromise on security, performance and end-to-end quality of service.
Today’s network infrastructure has to do a lot, while functioning 24×7 without interruptions and providing critical applications with the necessary data connections. The advantages of virtual data centres, cloud solutions and SD-WAN technologies are obvious. Due to higher complexity of communication channels, you often lack transparency in both physical and virtual networks.
But without this visibility, threats can go undetected and reduce the performance of your security and monitoring tools.
The increased shift from physical systems to virtual and hybrid environments presents network managers with unprecedented challenges when it comes to performance quality and enterprise security. Because of this migration to the cloud and virtual environments, your existing physical monitoring, analytics and security tools lose access to your critical network traffic, further degrading visibility.
In addition, new solutions are currently being deployed in virtual form, posing another challenge to the network infrastructure.
With NEOXPacketTiger we provide you with a Network Packet Broker solution to meet the requirements for more visibility and transparency in both physical and virtual network environments. This gives SecOps and NetOps the comprehensive and necessary functions of a hybrid Network Packet Broker that you need for your security and monitoring tools.

FEATURES und BENEFITS
|Aggregation||Aggregate and redirect network traffic for further processing|
|Replication||Allow multiple tools to analyse the same traffic|
|Inner Tunnel Filtering||Filtering according to inner tunnel parameters (GTP, VXLAN, L2TP)|
|GRE Tunnelling||Interconnection of Packet Brokers across multiple sites using L3GRE & NVGRE protocol|
|Filtering||Filtering out unnecessary network traffic with conditional 5-tuple classifiers|
|User Defined Filters (UDF)||Track packets that match a specific “window” in incoming traffic|
|AND/OR/NOT Operatoren||Simplify the operation of the Packet Broker with logical filter actions|

|Layer-7 Filtering||Perform DPI and identify thousands of Layer 7 protocols|
|Regex Filtering||Identification and filtering of data traffic (stream- or packet-based) containing certain strings|
|Weighted Load Balancing||Distribute traffic across multiple tools and prevent over-subscription|
|Session Tracking||Track the entire session once the desired pattern has been identified|
|Port Labelling||Track packet path by adding VLAN tags that indicate its ingress port|
|Header Stripping||Remove headers (MPLS, VLAN, PPP, QinQ, VN-TAG, VXLAN, GRE, GTP, L2TP, Geneve)|
|Header Editing||Modify MAC, VLAN and IP headers|
|Deduplication||Maximize tool performance by eliminating duplicated packets|
|Data Masking||Protect sensitive data by overwriting it before it is sent to the tools|
|Packet Slicing||Reduce data overload by removing packet payload and/or any unnecessary data|
|Meta-data Extraction||Generate Metadata to Syslog or Kafka servers|
|Capping & Sampling||Reduce traffic by sampling traffic and/or limiting rates|
|Time Stamping||Enhances network visibility with nanosecond time stamping capabilities|
|Capture & Replay||Capture PCAP files in filter granularity and replay for further analysis|
|De-Fragmentation||Assemble packet fragments to complete packets|
|IPFIX/NetFlow||Generation and distribution of IPFIX/NetFlow flows|
|Management||Web UI, SSH, CLI, SNMP, Net CONF, REST API|
