US testing and measurement company Keysight Technologies has announced Cloud Sensor vTap, a new feature of CloudLens from Keysight's Ixia business.

Cloud Sensor vTap is designed to help organizations better manage security risks in private and hybrid cloud environments, such as Microsoft Azure Stack, by providing comprehensive visibility into East-West traffic without requiring hypervisor access.

The rapid increase in cloud adoption has heightened the need for securing data, applications, and workloads that reside in any cloud-based environment. In fact, in a recent Ixia survey, 82% of IT professionals indicated they are concerned with security and data privacy in the private cloud.

“Private cloud environments, in which access to the underlying hypervisor platform and virtual switches is not possible, present unique visibility challenges,” said Scott Register, vice president of product management at Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group.

“Organizations have a limited view of virtualized network traffic which creates network blind spots for virtual or physical data center security, monitoring, and analytics tools. Cloud Sensor vTap delivers the visibility needed into incoming and outgoing traffic from a particular virtual workload, significantly improving overall security of private and hybrid cloud environments.”
