Scalable network observability for network and application performance.

LiveWire provides an additional source of data for network and application performance monitoring – the packets themselves.

LiveWire Delivers:

  • Telemetry data from network packets from virtually anywhere in the network
  • Detailed network and application performance data not available from traditional data sources like NetFlow, SNMP, or APIs
  • An easy transition from high-level monitoring to detailed packet analysis to quickly isolate root cause without being a “packet head”
  • Seamless integration with LiveNX and ThreatEye for comprehensive NPM, NDR, and root-cause analysis

Capture data that is the source of truth – network packets

Analyze and store packet data from virtually anywhere in your network, generating telemetry for seamless integration with the LiveNX platform for hop-by-hop traffic visualizations and custom alerting for immediate notification of anomalous behavior.

Store what matters with intelligent packet capture

There’s no benefit in saving data you can’t analyze, like encrypted packet payloads for which you’ll never have the key. Intelligent packet capture detects encrypted traffic and automatically slices off payloads to capture only the data you need, allowing you to retain the data that matters for longer.

Eliminate time wasted reproducing problems

With LiveWire, you have a recording of what happened. If LiveNX shows a problem and the solution is not obvious, a single click brings you to the specific packets for that transaction. LiveWire analyzes the  packets and automatically provides detailed information about network, application, and VoIP issues that occurred during the transaction, so you don’t need to be a packet expert.

What you could do better with LiveWire

Network telemetry and packet capture

Generate telemetry for monitoring and capture packets from anywhere.

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.

Eliminate Blind Spots

Protect every physical and virtual inch of your network.

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.

Identify Application Issues

Quickly pinpoint performance issues.

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.

Forensic-Level Analysis

Go from network monitoring to packet-level forensic analysis.

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.

Minimal Performance Impact

Fix traffic performance without leaving a trace.

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?

Security Incident Response

Resolve security incidents with the help of rich packet data.

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.

Scalable Deployment

Tailor LiveWire to your unique network needs.

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.
