How to Troubleshoot the Network Part 1: Common Problems and the Tools to Solve Them

on 4/9/20 8:00 AM By | Mark Graham | 0 Comments | Network TAPs Network Visibility/Monitoring Wireshark
The availability of your network and IT services can make or break business performance. A full-blown outage costs 86% of companies more than $300,000 per hour with 34% saying the costs would exceed $1 million per hour. But it’s not just outages that come with high costs. Slow performance and frequent brownouts will also lead to significant damages. While IT decision makers say that 51% of outages are avoidable with proper monitoring, we have to recognize that troubleshooting is a fact of life. Being able to do so effectively and efficiently will keep your business running smoothly even when issues arise. This is Part 1 in a two-part series explaining how to troubleshoot your network. Here, we’ll talk about how to troubleshoot the most common network issues and the tools needed to do so. And in Part Two, we’ll talk about how to troubleshoot network forensics issues.

Providing Visibility to your Industrial SCADA Virtualization Environment

With ever-present and growing security threats from both foreign and domestic sources, safeguarding utility networks and communication infrastructure has become paramount to protecting utility grids from hacking and providing uninterrupted delivery of services to consumers.  Recently, we’ve seen an influx in industrial customers from power utilities, oil & gas, to manufacturing looking to modernize their networks. Like many industries, industrial networks are looking to virtualize their environments to reduce hardware, infrastructure and facilitation costs as well as enabling better SCADA software integration into the existing IT environment.

What is Network Visibility and How to Guarantee 100% Data Capture

Network visibility has never been more important to the success of a business, regardless of industry. Addressing increasingly demanding business requirements has led to highly complex IT environments. And unfortunately, blind spots have become more common as a result. Any blind spots in your network can lead to costly consequences from both performance monitoring and security perspectives. If a blind spot leads to system outages, you could be faced with, on average, $300,000 per hour of downtime. And if blind spots open the door for attackers to launch a data breach, the global average cost of a data breach is $3.92 million. Eliminating these blind spots starts with maximizing network visibility. But what do we really mean by network visibility and how do you achieve it?

Why You Need Cloud Performance Monitoring For Network Visibility

on 3/19/20 8:00 AM By | Boris Rogier | 0 Comments | Technology Partners Cloud Solutions
By moving workloads to a cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) platform, you may think your infrastructure layers are completely outsourced, including the network side, and don’t need cloud performance monitoring.  You might also assume that since you’re not managing the network layer, you can keep using your current on-premise data center network visibility tools and don’t need to deploy a cloud traffic-specific monitoring solution.  There are specific reasons why you will need to have cloud traffic analysis capabilities. Some reasons are old. Some are new and have come with the ubiquitous presence that is the cloud. Let’s start with the old ones, the reasons you had network monitoring in place within your traditional  environment, which remain valid in the cloud:

Using Packet Capture to Enhance Public Cloud Confidence

on 3/12/20 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network Visibility/Monitoring Cloud Solutions
When moving to the cloud, application data security remains a chief concern among CIOs, DevOps, NetOps and SecOps teams. While the advantages of moving apps to the cloud is clear, well-run IT organizations refuse to risk a security slip in the public cloud that ultimately costs money and damages corporate reputation. The solution to data security in the cloud, is to incorporate full packet capture, analysis and distribution with a born-in-the-cloud, host-based read-only sensor for packet mirroring. Traffic mirror solutions like Garland Prisms exist today and provide the best solution to full packet-level data monitoring the enterprise is familiar with in their current data center environment.

Single Points of Failure: Understanding and Eliminating Them from Your Network

With so many mission-critical processes relying on network connectivity, data center outages simply can’t be tolerated. And yet, nearly one-third of all data centers experience an outage annually. According to an ITIC survey, 86% of businesses say that an hour of data center downtime costs more than $300,000. Worse yet, 34% say the costs of data center downtime can reach anywhere from $1 million to $5 million per hour. Regardless of the specific costs of data center downtime in your organization, the reality is that 80% of outages are preventable. However, many IT teams make the mistake of attributing a majority of outages to malware and other cyber threats. While cyber attacks can certainly cause downtime, there’s a more fundamental root cause that you need to address—single points of failure (SPOFs) across your network. By understanding and eliminating SPOFs on your network, you can maximize the effectiveness of inline security tools and increase resilience at the same time.
