Network monitoring and security provider Plixer today announced that they are introducing multi-vendor SD-WAN monitoring support for their network security and intelligence platform Scrutinizer. These additions expand Scrutinizer’s visibility and support for SD-WAN networks, making it easier for network administrators to track SD-WAN deployments regardless of the hardware. With Scrutinizer, users can observe every piece of their SD-WAN network, in addition to their LAN and cloud from a single-pane management system.
“SD-WAN growth and adoption rates are exploding,” said Jeff Lindholm, Plixer’s President and CEO. “Scrutinizer excels at collecting multi-dimensional telemetry from existing multi-vendor network infrastructures and cloud deployments to detect, visualize, report, and respond to network and security incidents. SD-WAN support has now been added to deliver true end-to-end visibility from the user all way the way to the cloud.”
According to Plixer, the new SD-WAN capabilities for Scrutinizer include monitoring traffic paths and tracking dynamic path changes to ensure the network is working correctly for the business. It also proactively notifies your network team of any SD-WAN topology changes to ensure that user experience is consistent. The tool will also inform your team on policy changes, why they occurred, and how they will affect your SD-WAN deployment.
“With VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud, we are disrupting the traditional WAN with software defined network control that delivers transport independent agility, performance and visibility to any hybrid cloud destination”, said Steve Woo, VeloCloud’s Senior Director of Product. “We are very pleased to have Plixer as an ecosystem contributor to provide mutual customers with application and traffic visibility extending from the mobile edge, through the SD-WAN, all the way into the cloud. This combined solution allows VMware customers to optimize user experience for applications being accessed from datacenter, cloud and multi-cloud.”
