Azure Virtual Network TAP

Posted on Monday, September 24, 2018

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.
