Packet Flow Switches (PFS) and TAPs

Strategic Packet Visibility for the Connected World

You need unified visibility that allows multiple IT groups to access packet flows without creating disruptions. With NETSCOUT products, there is no off. That’s why you need the ability to make dynamic connections from any TAP point in your network to any tool.

Inline Security and Threat Detection Systems

As your traffic volume grows, so too should your readiness to respond to issues as they arise. The NETSCOUT nGenius packet flow switch (PFS) and TAPs family enables multiple IT groups to aggregate, replicate, and manage the flows of traffic throughout the network, whether it’s for application performance monitoring, unified communications (UC), or security. Traffic management and security enablement capabilities ensure risk-free deployment of inline security and threat detection systems.
