Azure Virtual Network TAP
Updated: 13 November, 2019
Azure Virtual Network TAP enables you to continuously mirror traffic from a virtual network to a packet collector. The mirrored traffic is a deep copy of the inbound and outbound virtual machine network traffic and can be streamed to a destination IP endpoint or an internal load balancer in the same virtual network or peered virtual network. The packet collector or aggregator is a network virtual appliance solution that you can deploy from a growing list of security, network and application performance management partners who offer a solution that works with Virtual Network TAP. Validated partners for Virtual Network TAP include:
- Network packet brokers or aggregators: Gigamon, Bigswitch, Ixia.
- Security tools: ExtraHop, Fidelis Cybersecurity, Nubeva.
- Application and Network Performance management tools: Netscout.
