What started as a humble beginning of a software consulting business named Frontier Software in 1984 by two budding entrepreneurs Anil Singhal and Narendra Popat, has transformed into NETSCOUT [NASDAQ : NTCT]—the definitive market share leader in continuous network monitoring and management. Under Singhal’s leadership as the president and CEO, NETSCOUT has undergone numerous innovations in network traffic monitoring and analysis with the end-goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of network operations in real-time, while also providing deep insights into all aspects of the IT infrastructure under any condition. In the wake of the new age of IT environment where both cloud and on-premise business models work simultaneously, “NETSCOUT today helps companies to have a robust infrastructure monitoring in place, while providing transparency, visibility and deep insights into an organization’s IT infrastructure,” says Singhal.

Digital transformation has brought endless benefits of agility, flexibility, and scalability with public, private and hybrid cloud environments, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and software-defined data centers (SDDC). In the thick of such advancements, uninterrupted, high-quality service delivery entails real-time, holistic view for identifying issues and adept troubleshooting tools to fix them. This is where NETSCOUT’s prowess lies. With its business assurance solutions, the company propagates the visibility and insights required to speed up, transform, and innovate organizational networks and services for improved and affordable delivery.

NETSCOUT introduced the patented technology—Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI)—which is prevalently used by multi-million dollar enterprises to identify potential issues way before they start adversely affecting any of the critical business functions.
NETSCOUT’s ASI technology not only provides organizations with the operational insight necessary to drive competitive differentiation, but also helps them in their transition into the virtual world, the cloud and beyond. NETSCOUT, today has made ASI at the core of all its offerings, since organizations realize that the networks will be at the heart of businesses in the future. ASI technology allows organizations to have a centralized view of service delivery regardless of platform, architecture, OS or application. “ASI derives its power from the traffic data—the truth behind every network,” says Singhal. “Organizations need to analyze the reason behind the issues and also examine the direct transactional traffic traversing the network; and ASI makes this possible.” ASI converts traffic data into the ‘intelligent’ metadata in real-time, which can then be used for service assurance, cybersecurity, Business Intelligence (BI) and big data analytics.

The company’s patented technology provides trusted and comprehensive real-time insights into the performance of the network, applications and user communities. All these capabilities enable CIOs and other IT staff members to predict, preempt, and resolve network and service delivery problems while facilitating the optimization and capacity planning of the network infrastructure. “By viewing the overall traffic patterns and analyzing transactional data, organizations can better understand what network and other service delivery infrastructure components can handle, and where they need to expand or compress the computing or bandwidth,” notes Singhal.

Since “Smart data” is arguably the best source of data for service assurance and business analytics, NETSCOUT plans to take its rich legacy forward by offering most advanced solutions to make organizations more effective, secure and productive. “Overall, we continue to make important progress to further evaluate our value proposition with both enterprise and service provider customers and help them advance a wide range of digital transformation initiatives, including virtualization and the cloud,” concludes Singhal.
