Ixia, a Keysight Business and leading provider of network visibility and security solutions, announced it has further extended the CloudLens Visibility Platform to include support for Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Bluemix, and Alibaba Cloud, in addition to the existing support for Amazon Web Services (AWS), and for both Windows and Linux. As a result, Ixia CloudLens is now the first visibility solution to support all leading cloud platforms with multiple operating systems.
IT infrastructures are transforming into a mix of self-hosted applications and cloud-based services on multiple cloud platforms.

Ixia CloudLens provides comprehensive visibility across cloud environments, public, private, and hybrid clouds, and is the first to be delivered as a pure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. CloudLens was designed from the ground up to retain the benefits of the cloud, elastic scale, flexibility, and agility, while enabling security, analytics, and forensics tools to acquire the needed data, whether the tool is in a private data center or public cloud.
