Load Balancing | Net Optics, Inc

Keywords: Intrusion Detection, Load Balancing, detection systems

Load Balancers relieve overloaded monitoring tools by distributing traffic, by flow, to multiple replicated tools working in parallel. Tool replication enables you to increase the throughput of your security and performance monitoring by factors of 2, 3, 4, or more without incurring the CAPEX, integration, and learning-curve costs of acquiring new, unfamiliar tools. The complete line of Net Optics devices with load balancing functionality encompass solutions for all topologies of monitoring load balancing including.

  • Out-of-band, as with traffic recorders and intrusion detection systems (IDS)
  • Inline, as with intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and next-generation firewalls
  • Tool sharing, where multiple independent links can share a load-balanced pool of inline tools
