Join us to learn more about the latest release of Big Monitoring Fabric, now offering elastic cyber-defense, container & cloud monitoring, and advanced analytics. Big Switch has introduced an industry-first security capability for a broad range of workloads in the DMZ, as well as new cloud-native monitoring use cases. 

The volume and cadence of network threats are at an all-time high, and network operators are increasingly challenged to keep up. Traditional network packet broker (NPB) architectures are disadvantaged in the new data center environment because they use proprietary boxes that are challenging to manage, slow to scale and create tool silos that introduce visibility gaps. Big Switch Networks is the only vendor to deliver an SDN-advantaged security delivery architecture that enables proactive and rapid response to known and newly discovered threats.

John Fruehe, Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, will discuss the mandate for network security in scale-out data centers where thousands of both physical and logical nodes can expose enterprises to added risk as they transform to support the next-generation of software-driven applications and services.  

Doug Murray, Big Switch CEO, and Prashant Gandhi, Chief Product Officer, will discuss the new requirements necessary for data center network monitoring to better recognize and mitigate cyber threats and attacks and will demonstrate the powerful capabilities delivered in the latest release of Big Monitoring Fabric.

Discussion topics include:

  • What are the major issues driving the shift to next-generation data center networks?
  • What’s the new mandate to protect enterprise networks from continual security attacks?
  • What’s new in Big Monitoring Fabric?
  • Introduction of new use cases that are rapidly becoming the standard for agile and intelligent networks.
