Making a Case for Network TAPs to Provide Digital Legal Evidence

Sometimes we come across interesting requests from customers that are outside the normal security and monitoring applications within data centers or branch office locations. Recently, a law enforcement agency reached out to Garland Technology with a question as to whether our Network TAPs could assist them in obtaining sound digital evidence for a trial. This is a great example of lawful intercept, a scenario when a government law enforcement agency is granted legal means to obtain communications network data pursuant to lawful authority for the purpose of analysis or evidence. It’s a similar concept to the examples you see in movies or television shows where the FBI gets a warrant to tap the phone line of someone under a federal investigation, except in this instance, we’re tapping the network data.

Do's and Dont's of Packet Acquisition

on 8/20/19 8:00 AM By | Steve Harris | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN Network Visibility/Monitoring
In a previous post I wrote about the basics of packet data acquisition, why they are the foundation to network performance management tools. Most networks require their NPM tools to analyze packets from multiple network segments. Understanding the do’s and don’ts of packet capture will help you lay the foundation for a network visibility fabric that meets your organization’s monitoring and analysis needs.

Understanding the Basics of Packet Data Acquisition

on 7/11/19 8:00 AM By | Steve Harris | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN Network Visibility/Monitoring
Packets are an essential source of data for network performance management (NPM) tools. They are the foundation of data truth that all network monitoring and security tools rely upon for analytics, forensics, threat detection, and performance monitoring. In order to be able to fully trust the reporting and results of your tools, you have to have full confidence in their data source; the packets.

The Importance of Network TAPs when Packet Capture is Mission Critical

on 5/30/19 8:00 AM By | Harry Berridge | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN
The decision to use Network TAPs instead of relying on SPAN (mirror) ports can be the simplest, yet most important decision that must be answered for any network monitoring or security project. Case in point. The US Military knows the value Network TAPs provide, and that when it comes down to ensuring the effectiveness of a mission, TAPs are a must.

SPAN WARS: Dropping packets in a network near you

on 5/2/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN
You’ve been tasked with implementing a new performance monitoring tool in your network for advanced application layer visibility. After extensive research you’ve decided a Flowmon Probe is the best solution for your needs, allowing the monitoring of network performance, enhancing user experience, and optimizing MS SQL database performance.  Beyond that it will also deliver detailed information about who communications with whom, when, how long, how often, how much data has been sent, and much more information from L2 - L4.

Does packet loss really matter?

on 2/21/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | TAPs vs SPAN
Packet loss is defined as the failure of one or more transmitted packets to arrive at their destination. While every network can expect to encounter some packet loss from time to time, significant or sustained packet loss does require investigation into the root cause.
