A network packet broker (NPB) is a device that aggregates, filters, and manipulates network traffic for security and performance monitoring, it enables the monitoring of multiple traffic streams providing more efficient and cost-effective network visibility.
The main objective of implementing a network packet broker (NPB) is to improve network visibility and control.
ITSecurityC&T provides the expertise and resources to properly design, implement and maintain an NPB solution, including hardware and software components, based on the customer’s requirements.
Taking into account the complexity of implementing a network packet broker, implementation can be broken down into several phases, which include the following:
As a result, this approach ensures that the implementation is successful and that the NPB meets the needs and requirements of the customer.
After ensuring that the NPB is deployed in a matter that meets the specific needs of the customer, such as network traffic filtering and forwarding rules, the below are delivered:
