What is SSL and TLS and How it Works in Today’s Security

on 1/16/20 8:14 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Network Security Cloud Solutions
As today’s enterprises deploy more software to the cloud, while integrating software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications into their critical business infrastructure, the need for security and monitoring is obvious. With this need, SSL/TLS Decryption has become the security protocol designed to facilitate data security and privacy for internet communications. Heading into 2020, over 80 percent of internet traffic is being encrypted, including communication between web applications and servers, such as a web browser loading a website, to other communications such as email, messaging, e-commerce, banking, file storage, and voice-over IP (VOIP). Understanding how this affects your network performance and security strategy becomes imperative. With the amount of today’s encrypted traffic, the importance of traffic inspection, balancing performance bottlenecks between tools, and protecting encrypted traffic is quickly becoming one of the top security architecture challenges. SSL/TLS Decryption can seem complicated, so we’ll try to break this down and understand why to incorporate this into your security strategy.

Monitoring Business Critical Application in the Cloud with Garland Prisms and Flowmon

When you’re driving on a foggy day, how can you stay safe when you can’t even see the road in front of you?  Blind spots in the car are similar to blind spots within your cloud-based data center if not properly monitored.  Securing your network and keeping data integrity in the cloud can equate to millions of dollars lost in operational and downtime costs, if not done properly. It’s imperative to weather the storm and be prepared for your organization’s cloud migration to deliver sufficiently detailed network insight.  Most operations can’t forge a comprehensive overview of their user experience. This helps to instantly distinguish between problems that arise in the network as opposed to the application. In today’s economy performance equates to dollars, so having business-critical applications are expected to perform at a consistent quality.

How to Mirror Packets to your Monitoring Tools in AWS and Public Cloud Environments

on 1/2/20 8:00 AM By | John Rampart | 0 Comments | Network Security Cloud Solutions
Traffic visibility is a crucial component in securing a business and keeping systems operational. Organizations have made significant investments in specialized tools that ingest and analyze packet-level data for on-premise data centers. However, network monitoring has been blinded in the cloud.   With compute resources, application development and core business systems moving to the cloud, IT teams are no longer able to properly acquire, process and distribute packet-level cloud traffic to their selected tools. Consequently, the move to the cloud creates significant blind-spots and loss of ROI on vital tools that are powerless without access to packet-level cloud data.

Today’s increasing needs in the digital world require us to not live in the present, but look towards the future. Not just in technology, but in the way we do business. Hyper cloud, hybrid cloud, the cloud, the cold front without clouds, everything but what it was called, the Internet. Nothing has been changed in the way we apply the Internet to our lives, but what has changed is the way it has been marketed.
