Capture 6X more network traffic.
Easily obtain enterprise wide network traffic, at scale, to vastly improve your network performance, troubleshooting and forensic capabilities.
LiveWire records network packets to provide in-depth network and application performance insights.
LiveWire is the only solution designed to collect and process the data that network engineers need – both network telemetry and network packets. LiveWire integrates with LiveNX to extend network monitoring and application troubleshooting to remote sites and branches, the WAN edge (including SD-WAN), data centers, and the cloud. When telemetry data is not enough to solve complex problems, easily transition from monitoring to packet-level forensics and back using LiveNX as your single pane of glass.
Network monitoring systems rely on telemetry from network infrastructure devices like switches and routers to provide dashboards and analysis. But telemetry is not available everywhere, creating blind spots, especially at remote sites, virtual environments, and in the cloud. LiveWire provides NetOps teams with the same in-depth level of analytics across these locations as they do for physical networks.
By creating unmatched telemetry from packet data, LiveWire creates a level of intelligence not found in other NPM solutions. LiveNX leverages this rich packet-based telemetry to quickly identify and resolve application issues, such as VoIP and video performance problems, using hop-by-hop visualizations, often without the need for deeper analysis. And with LiveWire, the network packets are always available should deeper analysis be required.
With LiveWire, telemetry data generated directly from packets provides more detail than typical telemetry data from NetFlow or other flow-based standards, adding to the rich network monitoring data that already exists in LiveNX. LiveWire and LiveNX make it easy to transition from packets to network monitoring data and back to packets for detailed analysis when needed, all from a single network monitoring dashboard.
By using a network tap or bridge to mirror traffic, LiveWire monitors packet data without impacting the performance of production network traffic, which can often be a problem with network infrastructure devices. LiveWire also optimizes packet storage with intelligent packet capture, automatically detecting encrypted traffic and retaining only packet headers when enabled. Why store data you can’t decrypt?
For security incident response, there’s nothing more valuable than the packets. LiveWire provides a recording of all activity – the network packets – to help determine both the fingerprint and the extent of a breach. A recording of the packets is unalterable proof of what happened on the network before, during, and after an intrusion is detected. In addition, LiveWire generates telemetry for LiveAction’s network detection and response solution, ThreatEye, which provides powerful, encrypted traffic analysis for network security professionals.
LiveWire offers both virtual and physical appliance configurations that allow you to deploy high-speed packet capture where it is needed most and with the right level of performance.
LiveWire Grid is a SaaS solution that simplifies and scales the management and administration of LiveWire devices, no matter how many are deployed. LiveWire Grid offers streamlined installation and ongoing administration of LiveWire appliances for an exceptionally low total cost of ownership and delivers usability features like Single Sign On, cloud-based backup and restore, and template-based mass configuration pushes.
