With its support for Veryx virtual TAPs (vTAPs), RETINA provides visibility to the traffic between VMs and thus ensures that the IT Administrators are able to better understand the nature of such traffic, whether it be for compliance or security.
In conjunction with Veryx vTAP, IT Administrators have complete visibility of inter-VM traffic both within and across hypervisors. vTAP works in conjunction with existing physical network tap solutions, thus supporting existing hybrid networking environments where both physical and virtual components co-exist. It supports advanced traffic filtering capabilities and tunneling encapsulation.
