  • Robust Application. Able to handle traffic that most businesses will throw at it.
  • Easy to use. Easy to setup captures and filter down to specific traffic types.
  • Relatively cheap for what it's able to accomplish.
  • Needs options to scale to 10Gb/s networks. The cutoff for performance looks to be around 3Gb/sl
  • Needs API access to trigger capturesl
  • Needs Agents for remote capturesl
Capsa is highly recommended to be used in small dense areas of a network where it makes sense to be able to run analytics off of a mirror port to gain insight into traffic trends. It is a costly product to install in branch locations, and requires a decent spec hardware to run appropriately.
