Leading the Way in Network Technology

How to Manage the Network Edge

The ability to detect and remediate cyber attacks pose an existential threat to IT organizations worldwide. A study from IBM and Ponemon found that companies that detect and contain data breaches within 30 days save, on average, more than $1 million compared to organizations that take longer to respond. Managing the Network Edge is vital to secure and protect these critical corporate assets, ensure network performance, identify systemic anomalies and identify insider/outsider cyber threats. This applies to banking, healthcare, telecom, brick-and-mortar retail as well as water/energy utilities.

Using Load Balancing to Improve Your Security Solution

on 7/2/20 8:00 AM By | Steve Harris | 0 Comments |
Packet brokers play an essential role in creating a visibility fabric that spans your entire network. And as you evaluate the market for network packet brokers (NPB) or inline packet brokers, you’ll notice that many vendors offer a similar, core set of features. One of these features, which plays an important role in the performance of your security and monitoring solution, is load balancing. Even though load balancing is a common function of network packet brokers, it’s not a set-it-and-forget-it feature. To take advantage of load balancing features, you need to know the basics: what is load balancing? Why do you need load balancing? And how does load balancing work?

Packet Capture: You Can’t Protect What You Can't See

on 6/25/20 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments |
Packet capture is the ultimate tool for troubleshooting your network and protecting it from cyber threats. As important as your advanced security and monitoring tools are, there are two primary reasons why they make incident response and root cause analysis as efficient as possible with packet capture best practices. First, security and monitoring tools can’t get a complete view of your network activity without strong packet capture capabilities. Without 100% visibility of packets, your tools aren’t getting enough details about activity to accurately identify when issues occur or tell you where those issues occur.

Reducing Network Complexity for an Oil & Gas Giant

With the digital revolution Oil & Gas (O&G) companies are facing, integrating their operations environments through AI, robotics, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), with increasing connectivity chasing the ultimate goal of faster and more efficient systems to improve performance and streamline the supply chain, they inevitably open themselves up to increased cyber security risk.

Monitor and Maintaining Your Zero Trust Environment

on 6/11/20 8:00 AM By | Harry Berridge | 0 Comments | Network Security Network Visibility/Monitoring Federal
Cybercrime on local and state governments is continuing to rise, as cybercriminals understand the government possesses lots of data and information that are vital and highly classified. The risks to these federal IT systems are increasing, with insider threats from witting or unwitting employees, escalating threats from around the globe, and the emergence of new more destructive attacks. The U.S. Government Accountability Office reports that over 35,000 security incidents were reported by federal executive branch civilian agencies to the Department of Homeland Security in fiscal year 2017. In response, the government has adopted a Zero Trust (ZT) strategy, which shifts focus toward individual access and away from protecting wide segments of the network, away from a perimeter-based only cybersecurity approach. As we reviewed in our previous blog, “Building A Zero Trust Visibility Architecture,” a few main architecture concepts, including ZT Network Requirements, ZT Framework, and ZT Visibility fabric. Here we will introduce how to implement a regular cycle of monitoring, maintenance and updating.

Debugging and Troubleshooting Performance Issues with the FieldTAP

With the launch of Garland Technology’s new FieldTAP, one of the perks I can boast about is getting to test and use new technology. Especially working remotely, I was excited to have such a versatile TAP to add to my gear. With the new circumstance we all find ourselves in, this came in handy as we are finding an influx of remote performance issues around the industry and the need to quickly solve any issues. Debugging and troubleshooting performance and operational issues in a Wi-Fi Access Point or VoIP phone deployment often involves taking packet captures of the device’s network traffic using Wireshark.
