The deployment of SD-WAN solutions has become the key network transformation priority for organizations to improve network performance and cut down communication costs throughout their remote offices.
However, this has created a unique challenge for NetOps teams. They are often found struggling to manage the performance of SD-WAN deployments due to a lack of visibility.
This is where LiveAction steps in. The company enables NetOps teams to gain end-to-end visibility into network and application performance from a single location. As a result, enterprises can align network usage with business priorities and reduce overall operational costs. “Our close working relationship with Cisco and other SD-WAN providers ensures that key application performance is baselined and network policies and configurations have a targeted application behavior,” says Steve Stuut, the CEO, LiveAction.
One of LiveAction’s core offerings is LiveNX. The unified visibility platform has been designed to eliminate the cost and complexity of managing point solutions and deliver enterprise network management and monitoring capabilities. It can also be utilized by NetOps professionals to trace and track anomalous activity or monitor the undesired communication between two devices. LiveNX enables clients to unify diverse data types across multiple domains. Data types including flow, packet, SNMP, WiFi, and APIs ensure complete network coverage, visualization, and reporting.
LiveAction also delivers LiveWire, an extended visibility technology that integrates with LiveNX to see to the corners of a network and any remote locations. This solution pairing helps clients swiftly transition from flow analysis to packet analysis for forensic-level troubleshooting, using both real-time and historical data.
It is designed for the hard-to-see edges of a WAN, remote sites, branches, public cloud, and data centers. LiveWire can capture packet data from virtually anywhere within the network and channel its analysis through LiveNX. Following this method, clients can easily identify and resolve network issues concerning flow or packet data from one console.
Regarding network detection and response (NDR), LiveAction has recently expanded their portfolio to include deep packet dynamics, threat detection, and proprietary encryption visibility. LiveAction leverages ML capabilities to analyze encrypted network data in real-time without actually decrypting it. “Our ThreatEye NV product sits on the cloud, can capture the packets, create the flow, and bring it all into a single unified platform,” adds Stuut.
These robust solutions are rightly complemented by the LiveAction team, who play a crucial role in supporting clients throughout their network management journey. They often go the extra mile in writing code and custom programs for clients. This dedication has resulted in an industry-wide reputation for excellent service, trustworthy support, and long-lasting relationships with clients. LiveAction follows a methodical market-responsive process by collecting information from sales engineers and customer support that inform roadmap solutions and product innovations for end-users. The company also has an extensive network of partners and offers generous benefits to channel partner members. LiveAction enables partners through training to give live demonstrations of LiveAction’s products and showcase its usability and value as a monitoring solution overlay to hardware sales.

Having already made a global footprint, LiveAction shows no signs of slowing its pace in introducing innovative offerings in the network management space. With analytics becoming a more crucial aspect of network monitoring and performance optimization, the company will soon be launching an AIbased platform to further automate network management and monitoring activities. LiveAction will also add supplementary layers of innovation to its unified visibility platform, LiveNX, for enhanced guidance and support to users.
