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.

The convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT), has exposed many challenges for the industrial space, including increased vulnerability to cyber attacks and network blindspots. Unfortunately, many companies are on the wrong side of a hack when they discover they do not have proper visibility into their OT systems, like they may enjoy with their IT infrastructure.

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?

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.

How Does Garland Prisms work with Azure?

on 2/20/20 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Cloud Solutions
By now, we all know due to the rapidly evolving digital transformation, Amazon, Microsoft and Google have all created environments where infrastructure and networking is elastic, on-demand and extremely fast. As part of this three part blog series, exploring AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, this week we will focus on the benefits and limitations of Microsoft Azure, and how Garland Prisms can work within the platforms to provide additional value to customers by providing packet level visibility in the public cloud. If you’ve just started following along, check out our first post on AWS. As the No. 2 cloud provider, behind AWS with 15.5% of the market share, Microsoft Azure has an ever-expanding set of cloud services built to help organizations build, deploy and manage cloud applications through a global network of data centers. With Azure’s rapid rise, at a growth rate of 60% year-over-year, the gaps in their application services start coming into focus for cloud architects, including the lack of a virtual tapping solution to get packet visibility to monitoring and security tools.
