RNCAP Satellite is deployed as a small, light-weight application on Windows, MacOS, and Linux operating systems.
Satellite uses very little resources, and has built-in traffic filtering, so you only send the traffic you want to inspect. The Satellite configuration is SaaS based which allows for filter changes on the fly. Each Satellite agent checks in on a schedule providing uptime monitoring on all your traffic mirrors.
Once the Satellite agents have checked-in, they will pull down the latest con-figuration. This configuration specifies the traffic filters, encapsulation proto-col, and SPAN destination (NDR/NTA appliance).
Braintrace Dragonfly NDR sensors accept VXLAN encapsulation natively and will process the RNCAP SPAN alongside traditional SPAN. This hybrid approach extends visibility into dark areas of the network, including virtual environments that may not include a SPAN feature.
