Public and private cloud environments have the potential for blind-spots. These are data connections in the network that are not easily accessible, which makes them susceptible to threats like malware. In on-premises networks, taps access intra-and inter-rack traffic, then send it to network packet brokers for distribution to security and monitoring tools.

CloudLens addresses the unique considerations of capturing and processing data in public, private, and hybrid cloud deployments.
