NetScout has released nGenius Performance Manager and nGenius InfiniStream version 4.5

Netscout logoNetScout Systems, a provider of network performance management software, has released nGenius Performance Manager and nGenius InfiniStream version 4.5 software, and the evolution of its nGenius InfiniStream continuous capture Deep Packet Inspection devices, the company's next step in executing on the integration of its acquisition of Network General.

The result is a unified solution that raises the bar in service assurance and performance management by combining early-warning capabilities, real-time and historical application flow analysis, and deep-packet forensics. The result of this evolution will have a profound impact on IT operations by enabling network, datacenter and application managers to dramatically improve productivity through more effective collaboration to address the operational challenges of managing the modern IP network posed by virtualization, convergence, SOA and highly distributed network-centric operations.

According to the company, the evolution of the nGenius Performance Management solution integrates the functionality of NetScout's real-time monitoring and rapid top-down troubleshooting and analysis with the former Network General's expert packet analysis and data-mining capabilities.

As part of the product unification, elements from both product lines have come together under the nGenius Performance Management umbrella, with application intelligence and data mining capabilities retaining the well-established Sniffer branding. NetScout has also unified its family of continuous capture Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) devices, formerly known as nGenius AFMon and Sniffer InfiniStream, as nGenius InfiniStream. The new nGenius InfiniStream DPI devices retain important elements from both product lines delivering operational consistency with a flexible range of interface options and storage capacities to meet the most demanding high-performance requirements.

NetScout's thoughtful approach to the integration of Sniffer portfolio into the nGenius portfolio enables customers to efficiently leverage their existing investments and benefit from the blended technical capabilities of two platforms. Companies that have deployed both platforms further benefit as this latest software release allows for the consolidation and unification of performance management tools with an easy-to-deploy migration path that delivers a best of both worlds approach.

Michael Szabados, COO of NetScout, said: "The integration of nGenius and Sniffer technologies into a single, unified solution brings enormous power to our expanded customer base and new customers alike. Managing the Modern IP Network requires a transformative approach to how networks are managed. This latest release of NetScout's nGenius technology addresses this need by bringing top-to-bottom intelligent views that empowers IT managers to solve the hardest performance challenges while providing unmatched investment preservation and delivering greater business value to our customers."
