SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- RSA Conference -- Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader in high speed networking and network visibility systems, today announced their official partnership program, the Visibility Alliance Program (VAP). Interface Masters Technologies complements the Application and Monitoring appliance market by offering innovative network visibility solutions. The goal of this program is to partner with companies that will be able to mutually increase the value of the partnered companies Application and Monitoring products by providing a combined turnkey solution.
Hardware tools are continually being added to data centers to keep up with the constant demand and growth. With the addition of tools, networks become highly dense and as a result begin to become not as efficient. To keep up with the growth and to ensure that each tool is efficiently being used, the intricacies that may slow down a network need to be addressed. Network Visibility is optimizing the environment around network tools so they do not affect network performance and can be fully utilized. As a result of better visibility, it becomes easier to make network decisions and lower strain on the bandwidth.
Interface Masters targets the Network Visibility market with a wide product line including: Network TAPs to send copies of traffic to out of band appliances, Bypass Switches, connected to Inline appliances, that will protect the network and redirect traffic if the inline appliance fails and PacketMasters (Network Packet Brokers) that perform aggregation, mirroring, filtering, load balancing and Deep Packet Inspection of network traffic.
The market this program is going to focus on is the Application and Monitoring market. Using application appliances, network architect can have a better view of what is happening on the network to pinpoint where and how to maintain a healthy network. These tools will also help analyze and monitor end-user experience, and speed network and application troubleshooting. Some of the products that this market focuses on are: Wan Optimization, Network Performance Management and Application Performance Management. Monitoring appliances allows for traffic to stay secure so that companies can ensure data flowing in and out of the network is not compromised. These types of products include: Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Firewalls, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Web Filters.
"We are excited to kick off the Alliance initiative as it will provide better solution, better support and higher value to mutual customers," stated Matthew Butrimovitz, Marketing Manager of Interface Masters Technologies, "teaming up with the appliance vendors will enable Interface Masters to test and evaluate the interoperability between the systems which will lead to higher quality and customer satisfaction."
"We are excited to work with Interface Masters and show a broader audience the benefits of the Riverbed Performance Management product family," said Frank Rubio, Strategic Technology Alliances, Riverbed Performance Management, Riverbed Technology. "Together, we will help give customers solutions that help end users overcome the challenges of application performance."
"Palo Alto Networks is pleased to team with Interface Masters," said Chad Kinzelberg, Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development of Palo Alto Networks. "Working with Interface Masters and using the Interface Masters Bypass Switch, we are able to deliver increased network visibility and ensure high availability and network connectivity protection for end users."
"As customers want to deploy an Untangle, Internet Content Control (ICC), into larger networks, we have partnered with Interface Masters to create the visibility fabric to do this," says Joe Lowry VP Business Development, Untangle. "Utilizing a Network Packet Broker to load balance the traffic, opens new and much larger opportunities, where network administrators need an ICC to diagnose and resolve internet traffic problems."
"By offering innovative network access solutions, Interface Masters adds incredible value to our customers WAN Orchestration deployments," said Kevin Suitor, VP, Strategy & Corporate Alliances, Exinda.
