Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research Webinar entitled “Network Visibility Controllers: Best Practices for Mainstreaming Monitoring Fabrics,” featuring EMA VP of Research, Jim Frey.
Within the past few years, a new class of network packet access products has evolved to handle the challenge of distributing packets for multiple analytic techniques for network and security monitoring and management. Known variously as aggregation switches, matrix switches, network monitoring switches, and network packet brokers, these solutions provide flexibility, resilience, and cost control for monitoring products that rely on packet inspection. EMA describes this category of solutions as Network Visibility Controllers (NVCs), acknowledging the important primary role they can play in managing the distribution and control of packet streams for network and security visibility.
EMA has conducted a major research study to investigate and better understand the impact that this technology is having on networking & security management disciplines, including how deployments are taking place and which features and capabilities are having greatest impact.
In this 30-minute Webinar, Frey will discuss the results of this new research and:
-Review the ways in which NVCs are being used, both today and looking forward.
-Reveal which NVC capabilities are having the broadest impact and delivering the most value.
-Detail the architectural and administrative qualities that are making the most difference.
-Analyze the impact of server and network virtualization technologies.
-Unveil perceptions and experiences regarding alternative product types and choices.
The Webinar is Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/network-visibility-controllers-research-webinar-pr.html.
