Reduce performance impact

Most respondents (86%) use active network security devices despite concerns over diminished application performance, potential outages and latency. Many (48%) turn on 50% or fewer of available features, citing performance concerns. NETSCOUT can help you eliminate blind spots and achieve deep visibility at scale. See how we help customers de-risk security deployments in this 3-minute video.
