This new Quick Start deploys the Ixia CloudLens platform with Eastwind Cloud Network Sensors in a highly available environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 10 minutes. 

CloudLens is a data visibility platform that provides data access and capture, data grooming, and data delivery to security and monitoring tools. Eastwind Cloud Network Sensors are powered by CloudLens to provide intelligence and insight to help you identify and respond to threats in the cloud. This Quick Start deploys the Eastwind CloudVu sensor.

This Quick Start is for users who would like to use these technologies to identify malicious activity, insider threats, and data leakage in their virtual private clouds (VPCs) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. Container-based CloudLens agents are deployed on your monitored instances, capturing packet traffic as they flow through these instances. The packets are sent over a secure tunnel to be analyzed and visualized in Eastwind’s software as a service (SaaS) platform. This gives you clear visibility into your network traffic, so you can identify unexpected network behavior, perform network analysis, and detect any intrusions.

The Quick Start includes AWS CloudFormation templates and a guide that provides step-by-step deployment instructions.

To get started view the deployment guide for step-by-step instructions.

You can also download the AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment from GitHub.

Quick Starts are automated reference deployments that use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy key technologies on AWS, following AWS best practices. This Quick Start was built by Ixia, a Keysight business, in collaboration with AWS solutions architects. Ixia is an AWS Partner Network (APN) Partner.
