Arista DANZ Framework



With Arista DANZ, organizations that have requirements to perform critical analytical and monitoring functions with increasingly higher data volumes and higher network bandwidths can maintain security, compliance and reporting for all traffic without the addition of proprietary out-of-band monitoring infrastructure or backhaul networks. Troubleshooting applications and performance problems, performing traffic interception when required (such as for Lawful Intercept or compliance), and managing overall customer satisfaction and response times can be accomplished cost-effectively with limited new investment and using existing tools.
