Comguard to offer Ixia network visibility products in ME
Dubai-based distributor partners with California-based network optimisation firm
Dubai-based security VAD Comguard today announced it has partnered with California-based network optimisation specialist Ixia, to offer network visibility solutions that are intended to revolutionise the way Middle Eastern enterprises and service providers monitor their networks.
Comguard will offer Ixia's portfolio of network visibility solutions including the Anue Net Tool Optimizer (NTO) and GTP Session Controller (GSC) to their customers in the region. The NTO portfolio of network monitoring switches, also known as network packet brokers, provides visibility into physical and virtual networks, improves network security monitoring and optimises monitoring-tool performance. The GSC enables mobile carriers to gain better insight and control over individual user sessions.
The Ixia Anue NTO solutions connect data centres and service provider networks with performance monitoring tools to aggregate, filter, load balance and de-duplicate network traffic. Comguard claims the NTO's patented filtering and de-duplication technology differs from other network packet brokers by ensuring each monitoring tool gets exactly the right data needed for analysis.
"This partnership with Ixia will enable us to further expand our market base with innovations for equipment manufacturers, service providers, enterprises, and government agencies," said Jayadevan K, senior vice president, Value Business, Comguard.
"These solutions provide leading network visibility platforms that offer clarity into physical and virtual production networks for improved performance, security, resilience, and application delivery of cloud, data centre, and service provider networks."
"Increased visibility into the network has become critical for IT organisations," said Paul O'Reilly, director of sales, Network Visibility Solutions, Ixia.
"Corporate IT teams need comprehensive and flexible access to network data if they are to effectively monitor, manage and maximise their network resources. Ixia is dedicated to working with the best channel partners to deliver and support our network visibility solutions in local markets in The Middle East. Ixia is proud to join forces with Comguard FZ LLC, which has a strong history of delivering leading-edge solutions to The Middle East markets."
Comguard is now the authorized distributor for the entire range of Ixia's network visibility solutions portfolio and is authorized to sell across the Middle East including the GCC.
