Overcoming Limited Cloud Visibility
Challenge: Having issues gaining visibility in the cloud
In response to the JEDI initiative, our team is in the process of migrating part of our network to one of the major cloud providers. Surprisingly we have limited if any visibility, compared to our on-prem infrastructure. We used the available traffic mirroring capabilities but didn't get much out of it.
Note: Traditional network monitoring tools weren’t designed to monitor cloud traffic, either in public or private clouds. Today’s virtual architecture will not tolerate devices creating traffic bottlenecks and blindspots. Companies are running into challenges with their cloud migrations, including:
• Dealing with network blindspots and bottlenecks
• Having limited access to packet flows in the cloud
• Existing infrastructure based TAP/mirroring limitations
• Performance degradation
• Aggregation issues, pulling more data than they can handle
• Security risks
Using Garland Prisms
Garland Prisms provides complete network visibility by delivering advanced packet visibility for security monitoring and packet inspection in your cloud environments.
Provide an out-of-band packet mirroring and decryption solution, enabling your network-based tools to see deeper into your modern compute environments, providing visibility into Kubernetes and cloud environments without impacting performance or architectures and without modifying your deployment architectures.
Garland Prisms complements native cloud mirrors, providing added visibility and replication [1:N] to multiple destinations, while allowing you to fuel your tools with decrypted visibility.
