Network Analytics Vendor Deepfield to be Bought by Nokia To Fight DDoS Attack

Network Analytics Vendor Deepfield to be Bought by Nokia To Fight DDoS Attack (Companies to Watch)

Cloud providers and large enterprises don't know enough about what's going on in their networks, according to Nokia. The networking equipment vendor wants to remedy that by enhancing its products with technologies from U.S. IP network analytics vendor Deepfield, which it has just announced plans to acquire. Deepfield provides real-time information about application demand and data flows that Nokia intends to use to help its SDN (software-defined networks) steer traffic. Nokia sees Deepfield's analytics tools as a way to help its customers -- including ISPs and telcos, hosting companies and others operating cloud services at scale -- to better control and protect their networks.
