Packet inspection technologies for monitoring network activity and network security are not only here to stay, their use continues to expand. The scale and criticality of networked infrastructures within the enterprise is growing as well. Finally, the cost of management tools for maintaining vigilance and assuring reliable performance within IT is similarly growing apace. This perfect storm has led to a rapid evolution of a specialized product technology category that Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has defined as Network Visibility Controllers (NVCs). Also known as network monitoring switches or network packet brokers, NVCs have quickly established themselves as an essential building block for network and security packet monitoring fabrics, allowing flexibility and resilience along with significant cost savings for the race to monitor and secure modern enterprise networks. This EMA research report investigates current uses of NVCs, the influence of the changing monitored environment, and the best practices experiences of organizations large and small who have embraced this technology.
