Building a Modern Observability Stack with Garland, Corelight, and Humio

From Packets to Logs to Dashboards   Beginning with packets In its most basic form, data travels across the internet in packets — each carrying a maximum of 1,500 bytes — until they reach a pre-determined destination. As packets arrive, the network receiving the data assembles the packets like a puzzle, recreating the message. Today, data transmission involves unprecedented volumes of data at increasing speeds. And with initiatives like the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing, new layers of complexity emerge from the ever-widening diversity of communication protocols. Having full visibility of all network data is critical to securing your business and keeping complex systems operational. Incident responders rely on network data as a foundational source of truth to resolve security alerts, but common network data sources either fail to provide the full picture or make storing and searching the full picture too difficult and cost-prohibitive to scale. Without comprehensive and readily-actionable network data provided in real time, it can take incident responders hours or even days to diagnose and resolve a single security alert.

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.

Top 10 Security Challenges of 2019

on 12/5/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network Security Network Visibility/Monitoring
In 2019 our team was at dozens of trade shows and conferences around the world. While we were out in the field, we surveyed thousands of people at events like CiscoLive, InfoSec, RSA, Cyber Security Summits, and FutureCons, asking them, what is the biggest security challenge facing your organization this year? We spoke with consultants, technology partners, resellers, integrators, and end users across all industries, with organizations of different shapes and sizes, and while the responses were extremely varied, these 10 topics kept coming up in responses.
