Application Session Filtering

Filter all traffic from any session.

Application Session Filtering identifies application sessions and filters their traffic based on signatures or patterns that appear across any part of the packet payload. While Adaptive Packet Filtering identifies matching content in packets, Application Session Filtering goes a step further to extract entire sessions corresponding to a specific application. Readily-available scripts for popular applications are available to accelerate the deployment of this powerful feature.

The numerous benefits of Application Session Filtering

  • Improve the efficiency and limit the performance degradation of monitoring tools by offloading session filtering to the GigaSMART module
  • Optimize security tools for application inspection by filtering out safe streaming traffic such as Netflix and YouTube and forwarding sessions of interest to security tools
  • Eliminate “Patch Tuesday” monitoring challenges by filtering out Windows Update traffic
  • Reduce the traffic loads on security tools and offload application identification to GigaSMART technology
