APCON announced a new release of its TitanXR switch management software.

This latest release introduces the new IntellaTap-VE feature, making TitanXR a complete virtual network monitoring system with simple point-and-click monitoring of Linux-based KVM virtual machine traffic. TitanXR’s expanded functionality includes centralized physical and virtual network status alerts and alerts to APCON’s mobile application.

“With APCON’s network visibility products, customers can seamlessly monitor both their virtual and physical networks, increase security and lower their budget through a unified monitoring architecture,” said Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON. “A major advantage for users in a virtualized environment is that IntellaTap-VE doesn’t require the deployment of additional agents or VM software, minimizing the impact on network resources and staffing.”

APCON’s IntellaTap-VE communicates to standard Linux KVM hypervisors to easily identify and enable taps of virtual machine traffic, set traffic filters, follow migration events and forward traffic over unidirectional GRE tunnels to monitoring systems. The IntellaTap-VE can aggregate multiple streams of virtual traffic and forward the traffic to one or more security, application and network performance monitoring tools.

With TitanXR, a centralized monitoring and management software, users can select a traffic filter for each IntellaTap-VE virtual machine tap on the server. The filter only forwards traffic of interest to security and network or application performance monitoring tools, thus reducing the impact on valuable server and physical network resources.

APCON’s TitanXR and IntellaTap-VE virtual monitoring solution is available immediately for general release. IntellaTap-VE is a separate licensed feature of TitanXR.
