Enterprises are demanding IT organizations leverage all potential advantages from public cloud infrastructure including economies of scale and agility to meet their business requirements. The public cloud is not a panacea so the result is a hybrid approach to cloud migration. As such IT workloads are now operating across a complex infrastructure mix of on-premise virtualized datacenters, public cloud infrastructure, private cloud deployments and VPN connections to remote offices and desktops.
As this additional deployment complexity grows, so do the challenges faced by IT Operations. Securing applications and ensuring service delivery meets user’s expectations requires more visibility from more points across the complex mix of cloud, virtual and physical infrastructure.
For maximum visibility, both network operations and security operations rely on network data that is increasing difficult to collect from workloads that have migrated to virtual and cloud environments. The traditional method of tapping the physical infrastructure is clearly impossible in the public cloud and does not provide any visibility into East-West traffic within virtualized and cloud environments.
Low Overhead Cloud-Ready Instrumentation
Corvil Sensor makes seamless visibility possible, enabling IT operations to secure and manage service performance as enterprises migrate worlds work loads across their hybrid infrastructure. It is a lightweight, easily deployable agent that automatically collects, timestamps, packages and forwards packets for analysis by the Corvil platform.
The Corvil platform continuously captures, decodes, analyzes and learns from both the physically tapped network data and the Corvil Sensor network data. This data is then presented in intuitive workflows and streamed into third party products to enable both network and security operations to manage and secure applications across this hybrid infrastructure.
