NetScout Acquires Simena for Packet Flow-based Monitoring Switch

NetScout Systems has acquired privately-held Simena, a developer of high performance, low-latency IP packet flow-based network monitoring switching technology. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Simena enables IT organizations and service providers to aggregate, filter and control network traffic for data, voice, and video monitoring and cybersecurity deployments. The Simena switching technology aggregates, load-balances and disseminates network traffic and offers 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching capabilities. The company is based in Sterling, Virginia.

NetScout said Simena's technology will further strengthen its Unified Service Delivery Management strategy – extending the company's pervasive visibility capabilities by enabling fine-grained packet-flow control for monitoring environments to better leverage critical network monitoring points.
