Phantom vTap


Get visibility into the traffic between virtual machines in virtualized environments 

A cost-effective answer to securing Virtualized Environments

Problem: The high cost of network blind spots

Virtualized environments can create dangerous blind spots for organizations that need to properly secure and protect their networks. One solution is to purchase a separate set of tools to monitor security and compliance in virtualized environments. Unfortunately, this approach can be costly, may still not offer 100% visibility of the virtual traffic, and fails to make use of your existing monitoring technology. No wonder, then, that many enterprises, government agencies, and service providers are seeking a solution that can bridge the divide between today’s physical and virtual environments

Solution: Extending network visibility with your existing tools

Ixia’s Phantom vTap™ helps you achieve breakthrough visibility and control of traffic flowing between virtual machines for greater security, compliance, and performance. And, in addition to providing integrated management and filtering capabilities for virtualized monitoring layers, these software devices send monitored traffic in encapsulated tunnels to physical or virtual monitoring tools. This allows you to use existing security and monitoring tools and infrastructure to monitor virtual environments—delivering significant cost savings without increasing your management burden.
