cPacket Networks, a provider of next-generation network performance/security monitoring and packet brokering solutions, has launched the cCloud cloud-based network visibility-as-a-service (VaaS) offering by working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and using the traffic mirroring feature offered by Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
“While many of our customers are migrating workloads to the cloud, until now it happened to be a black box for them, from a performance and security perspective. The cPacket solution builds on Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) traffic mirroring to remove blind spots, provide complete visibility, and make the cloud transition smooth for our customers,” said Brendan O’Flaherty, CEO of cPacket Networks, in a statement.
Traffic mirroring duplicates the traffic from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances within an Amazon VPC and forwards it to performance and security monitoring tools. Because traffic mirroring is built in Amazon VPC, it removes the need for AWS customers to deploy an ad-hoc forwarding agent in each of their Amazon VPCs for every monitoring tool they have. cPacket cCloud allows deep inspection, threat investigation, performance, and capacity planning.
