Network traffic is increasing exponentially imposing ever increasing challenges to network monitoring and analysis tools. BYOD, Vx workloads, migration to SaaS etc. add complexity and unpredicted traffic patterns and unexpected latencies.
Detailed traffic visibility in these changing scenarios is key and is resulting in a new breed of event analytics tools that ensure network security, business continuity and solid network performance. Big Data analytics tools, traditionally the realm of deep learning and large-scale computations, are now being deployed widely to do APT Detection, Machine Learning, Anomaly Detection, Behavior Usage, Opportunity Identification, Sentiment Analysis. Big data stores such as Hadoop/ kx kdb+, Tableau, Splunk are now deployed widely.
