Net Optics (News - Alert), a provider of network access and monitoring solutions such as a network tap and a network packet broker, has recently released its new iTap 2 Platform.
The first iTap 2 solution in the series is coined the iTap 2 Gigabit Port Aggregator while additional iTap 2 solutions are planned for release in the next few months.
The new iTap 2 Platform delivers advanced security, greater enterprise-grade control and lower TCO across a spectrum of Net Optics products. The solution helps users identify developing trends and respond quickly to detected issues. Thus, it helps to maintain the integrity, availability and performance of their networks.
The iTap 2 Platform comprises intelligent network taps such as port aggregators and bypass switches equipped with ProPush statistics technology that proactively sends data to instrumentation layer tools every second to increase visibility and reduce troubleshooting time.
"The flood of new devices and applications is creating explosive growth in traffic," said Daniel Aharon, senior director, Product Management, in a statement. "This poses serious challenges to IT departments tasked with safeguarding and managing the network in a cost-efficient manner.”
The new solution helps IT teams successfully with network threats and pressures, keeping the networks available and safe, Aharon added.
As an advanced measure to offer an unparalleled level of enterprise control, the new iTap 2 Platform also supports SNMPv3, SSH and HTTPS access, audit logs for tracking configuration changes and finer access control. The solution even can fully supports next-generation technologies like IPv6. Its revamped Web interface makes it easy to use and customers can use Indigo Pro, Net Optics' centralized management system, to manage and configure all products in the iTap 2 product family.
