TAP Into Technology

Leading the Way in Network Technology

See Threats in Real Time with 100% Visibility

Posted by Chris Bihary | 3/29/18 8:00 AM
Network security becomes increasingly complex with each passing day, making it critical that busy security teams have full visibility and threat detection capabilities. These resource-constrained teams already support a wide range of security appliances like firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and forensics to help guard enterprises from a growing threat landscape. That's why Garland Technology partnered with ProtectWise™, an industry leader in cloud-based automated network detection and response, to create an infrastructure solution that eliminates blind spots.

The Challenge

With enterprises moving core business functions to the cloud, network security teams have an even bigger challenge ahead of them to properly protect their networks without sacrificing accuracy or the time it takes to detect and respond to threats to both the physical and cloud environments.

The ProtectWise and Garland Technology Joint Solution

The Garland and ProtectWise solution provides 100% network visibility with an end-to-end infrastructure that eliminates blind spots in your network. With Garland Network TAPs tapping the wire and ensuring 100% packet capture, The ProtectWise Grid™ is capable of providing automated network detection and response all in one single interface.  The solution offers:

  • Continuous, automated threat detection and analysis both in real-time and retrospectively
  • See packets before and after they go through active, inline security tools with historical look-back
  • Deliver and analyze decrypted SSL, TLS, and SSH traffic
  • Collect unidirectional traffic, that does not go back to the network

Record Everything. See Everything.

Visibility is essential to The ProtectWise Grid, which creates a lasting, high-fidelity memory of activity on the network, by capturing and storing traffic into a single destination in the cloud. This gives you the ability to know whether threats have ever jeopardized your network. Without 100% visibility, The ProtectWise Grid would be unable to guarantee that the historical data being presented and analyzed  is accurate. 

Garland Technology's Network TAPs and purpose built packet brokers also provide the flexibility to make policy changes based on real-time data, determine baseline traffic and eliminate the risk of oversubscribed SPAN ports.
