7 Common Visibility Challenges in Industrial Environments

on 4/30/20 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network TAPs TAPs vs SPAN Industrial Ethernet
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?

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 Federal
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.
