Executive Summary

One of the fundamental limitations with most traffic monitoring and management methods in use today is that they are not built into the network itself. CLEAR-Flow represents a new paradigm for network traffic management. For the first time, CLEAR-Flow brings together network monitoring, analysis, and response in a single process inside the Ethernet switching fabric. This creates a powerful toolbox for solving diverse network challenges that were previously difficult or impossible to solve, such as threat detection in high-speed networks. In this paper the authors present an overview of the CLEAR-Flow technology, including the key benefits. Additionally, this paper provides an example of a security application that demonstrates CLEARFlow's value.
