cPacket Networks, a leading provider of AIOps-ready network-aware application performance and security assurance, has launched the new cProbe® series appliance. cProbe is a purpose-built device designed to collect packet-data from the network, construct flow-data out of it, and export it in standard (NetFlow/IPFIX) format to be consumed by security and performance tools, flow collectors, and analytics applications. This enables network operators to monitor bandwidth identifying client devices, applications consuming most bandwidth, policy shaping, capacity planning, identifying throughput bottlenecks, containing shadow-IT, and using the data for security analysis. cProbe-V® provides the same capabilities in virtualized and multi-cloud environments.

“There are many applications across the enterprise IT and service providers that require flow-data for extended network visibility,” said Nadeem Zahid, VP of Product Management at cPacket Networks. “cPacket cProbe provides superior performance, better efficiency, and lower costs compared to mechanisms such as flow-export licenses with traditional packet brokers, which is expensive and does not scale.”
cPacket also adds the cPacket Extensible Storage (CES) capability to its existing cStor® series packet capture appliances. CES adds external storage capacity of up to 1.6 Petabytes for retaining packet data for compliance and security forensics; desired by financial services, healthcare, and other regulated industries.
