The labor-intensive practice of applying static thresholds to protocols across segments of a network obviously isn’t practical in today’s complex environments. Riverbed Cascade’s behavior analytics “learn” the normal patterns of interactions between users, applications and systems across an organization’s infrastructure and identify abnormal activities that could signify security or performance threats.
Security, network and data center teams use this rich source of information to accelerate monitoring, troubleshooting, change management and optimization workflows. One benefit is proactive problem resolution and reduced MTTR. Another is keeping capacity planning and change management CMDB data updated. Technicians also gain the ability to facilitate data center moves and WAN optimization initiatives.
Riverbed Cascade offers granular visibility into application delivery dependencies end-to-end, server-to-client. It provides network behavior analysis (NBA) to help network administrators fully secure and manage key business services’ availability and performance. Riverbed's management solution spans network, security, and data center operations groups to provide application performance management, improved threat and compliance management, and CMDB discovery.
Cascade analyzes users’ interactions with the software, systems and network devices of the application delivery infrastructure. It reports the critical data administrators need to quickly resolve the problems that affect service like unauthorized usage, availability and performance issues and security threats. It also provides information that guides consolidation, virtualization and optimization initiatives.
