TETRATION FOR DEEP NETWORKING FORENSICS AND PROTECTION
What if you could actually look at and understand every data packet that has ever traversed your network?
In today’s environment of rapid application deployment and application mobility, network traffic is predominantly east-west, and data centers are becoming increasingly complex. This surge in east-west traffic exacerbates the challenges for data center operations. Without full visibility into network traffic, IT has difficulty fully understanding exact application communication patterns and implementing policies between different application tiers.
The Cisco Tetration Analytics solution provides pervasive visibility into your data center and cloud environments that was not possible before. By using both hardware and software sensors deployed across the data center infrastructure, Cisco Tetration collects every packet and every flow at every speed. Moreover, Tetration uses third-party configuration data, such as server load-balancing configurations and configuration management database information to the sensors, to increase the solution’s full understanding of your environment. In addition to the granular packet-based telemetry, Cisco Tetration also collects and maintains inventory about the processes running on each of the servers. This new visibility enables you to have a nimble and responsive environment to support all the network and application changes coming your way.
Cisco Tetration also dramatically simplifies your zero-trust operations. Using behavior-based application insight and machine learning, it allows customers to build dynamic segmentation policy models and automate policy enforcement. Its infrastructure agnostic approach supports both on-premise and public cloud workloads.
By deploying Tetration, Cisco IT bought another 7 to 8 years out of existing data centers and saved $50 million. Read the IDC report.
