ProtectWise and Ixia Announce Integration Partnership

Strategic Alliance Will Deliver Unparalleled Visibility across Mixed and
Multi-Cloud Environments

DENVER & CALABASAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IxiacomProtectWise™,
the enterprise security company that delivers pervasive visibility,
automated threat detection, and unlimited forensic exploration, and Ixia,
a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security
solutions, today announced an integration partnership that will offer
enterprises a comprehensive solution for end-to-end visibility across
enterprise, mixed cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

ProtectWise delivers a new utility model for enterprise security. With The
ProtectWise Grid
™, analysts get automated detection of advanced
attacks, and the ability to intuitively interact with massive volumes of
security data through an advanced visual presentation — transforming how
enterprises handle complex threats with security delivered entirely from
the cloud.

“Moving enterprise workloads to the cloud can create stumbling blocks
for security teams, as they no longer have the network packet visibility
needed to be effective,” said Ramon Peypoch, Chief Product Officer at
ProtectWise. “Ixia CloudLens helps ProtectWise solve this problem by
providing full, easy, and highly scalable visibility in the public
cloud. The joint Ixia and ProtectWise solution also provides automated
threat detection and unlimited forensic exploration.”

The Ixia
™ platform provides visibility across all cloud
environments — public, private, and hybrid clouds. CloudLens Private,
the arm that supports private cloud technologies, is able to tap,
filter, process, and manipulate traffic all in a cloud environment.
CloudLens Public addresses cloud security needs through a secure,
intelligent visibility platform that leverages metadata tags and is
built as a cloud-native SaaS with a serverless architecture.

“CloudLens simplifies capture of network traffic from public cloud,
virtual, or physical environments and delivers it seamlessly to The
ProtectWise Grid,” said Scott Westlake, Vice President of Corporate
Development and Strategic Alliances at Ixia. “Through this integration,
ProtectWise and Ixia offer security professionals pervasive visibility
across all of their network environments.”

ProtectWise and Ixia will hold a joint webinar to deliver an overview of
the joint solution’s capabilities for customers on Wednesday, July 19,
2017, at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET. Sign up and learn more at
