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.

Provide Visibility and Improved Operational Efficiency for Banking Cloud Endpoints

With the migration to cloud networks underway, companies are focused on the long term benefits of lowering their costs, utilizing faster innovation and improving customer satisfaction. Many industries have been taking a wait and see approach due to maturing technology and the limited monitoring and security capabilities available, but they are busy testing and planning for the eventual leap to the cloud. The banking industry - known as a leader in technical innovation - is again at the forefront. Banks must design solutions that protect sensitive and valuable customer assets and comply with stiff regulations and security protocols along with a high-volume of data.

How does Garland Prisms work with AWS?

The advantages of public cloud computing can’t be beat. Companies around the world are taking advantage of the cost-saving measures associated with public cloud to help scale their infrastructure, provide disaster recovery services, elastic storage, and hosted services. As public cloud became more popular over the last few years, leaders quickly developed in the space. According to a recent Gartner report, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is by far the leading public cloud infrastructure platform, owning 47.8% of the market share. After AWS there is a big drop down to the next leaders: Microsoft Azure holds 15.5% of the market, Alibaba owns 7.7%, and Google Cloud has just 4%. In this new, three part blog series, I’ll explore AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, describe some of the benefits and limitations of each platform, and how Garland Prisms can work within the platforms to provide additional value to customers by providing packet level visibility in the public cloud.

Network Packet Visibility for Hybrid Cloud Environment

Nearly all cyber attacks must cross the network, so extracting security-relevant data from network traffic is essential across a wide range of security operations. As teams are moving to the cloud, they lose physical access to applications that previously were housed in the data center. Just as traditional network test access point (TAP) and packet broker solutions fuel monitoring tools traffic from across the network, a solution is needed to continue to feed these tools when there is no longer physical access to applications that now reside in the cloud.

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.
