DPI technology has been an essential component of information technology networks for well over two decades. The volume of Internet traffic and - more importantly - the rate of encrypted traffic has exponentially increased over the years. At the same time, DPI software has evolved into a powerful tool to meet new network challenges and plays a vital role in today's Internet and network infrastructure. With expanding technologies such as cloud computing, 5G or the Internet of things (IoT), DPI is becoming even more important for networks.
