NETSCOUT & DLT

Tech Talk Tuesdays are technical discussions on hot topics that NETSCOUT customers are focused on solving. Our subject matter experts are experienced professionals who spend a lot of time helping customers pursue and solve their toughest challenges with innovative products and solutions from NETSCOUT.

We created this series for a couple of reasons. First, customers have asked us to share more technical insights about solving uniquely challenging problems that pose a threat to service availability, security, or the user experience. Second, the current environment has forced more remote working and socially distanced communications, so we needed a way to force multiply our best and brightest technical minds to a one-to-many environment. And finally, we take our "Guardians of the Connected World" roles seriously and we wanted to share technical best practices that might help others not only survive the chaos but thrive in it.

Join us for in-depth Tech Talk Tuesdays as we offer insights in protecting against disruptions in digital services – whether in availability, performance, or advanced cyber threats and DDoS attacks, so you can deliver the speed, reliability, and rapid deployment required for state-of-the-art information services to support your mission objectives.
