Why You Need Cloud Performance Monitoring For Network Visibility

on 3/19/20 8:00 AM By | Boris Rogier | 0 Comments | Technology Partners Cloud Solutions
By moving workloads to a cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) platform, you may think your infrastructure layers are completely outsourced, including the network side, and don’t need cloud performance monitoring.  You might also assume that since you’re not managing the network layer, you can keep using your current on-premise data center network visibility tools and don’t need to deploy a cloud traffic-specific monitoring solution.  There are specific reasons why you will need to have cloud traffic analysis capabilities. Some reasons are old. Some are new and have come with the ubiquitous presence that is the cloud. Let’s start with the old ones, the reasons you had network monitoring in place within your traditional  environment, which remain valid in the cloud:

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.

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.

Lights, Camera, Security! Cisco Shines a Spotlight on Garland Technology With Threatwise TV

on 10/24/19 8:00 AM By | Jason Drewniak | 0 Comments | Network Security Technology Partners Cisco Solutions
The strong relationship with Cisco and Garland Technology encompasses a host of supported products. At this year’s CiscoLive in San Diego, our alliance laid the foundation for an interview with Jason Wright on Cisco’s Threatwise TV. Covering the latest developments in Cisco cybersecurity, this video series featured Garland’s extension of specialized products, focused on ensuring 100% network uptime and visibility. Our Regional Sales Manager, Juan Garza, eloquently voiced why Garland leads in the network visibility space.  The purpose of a TAP is to gain full visibility into network links. Garland’s breadth of network TAP and packet broker technology retrieves packets from the network enabling a set of security application performance and network performance tools, which ranges from 1G Copper to 100G Fiber networks. Using Garland’s EdgeSafe™: Bypass TAPs, inline tools including SSL decryption, next-generation firewalls, and IPS's can mirror traffic to out-of-band tools.
