SAN MATEO, Calif. -- VSS Monitoring, a leader in network packet brokers (NPBs), today introduced a new suite of NPB appliances and software capabilities which deliver the industry’s only fabric-system approach for enhancing global visibility and operational performance for network monitoring and security systems. The new VSS Monitoring product family, called vBroker™, enables customers to uniquely provide network-wide link-layer visibility and access to a broad set of network monitoring and security systems, making them significantly more efficient and yielding higher ROI. The growing number of monitoring and security systems required for today’s increasingly complex networks results in major provisioning and operational challenges for both enterprises and service providers, including limited network visibility, major capital costs due to deployment silos, and complex network upgrades that impact existing tool system speeds and capacities.

“The market need for application-aware network packet broker solutions continues to expand due to ever-increasing network complexity and upgrade cycles of network capacity due to the pressure public and private cloud infrastructures place on the network,” said Jonah Kowall, Gartner research director. “Network packet brokers make today’s increasing data stream manageable. The placement of monitoring tools must be accomplished and tested easily in centralized locations, and NPBs enable better visibility and longevity of tool investments.”
