Leading the Way in Network Technology

The Essential Network Visibility Triad

on 3/28/19 8:00 AM By | Rick Aguirre | 0 Comments | Network Visibility/Monitoring Technology Partners
Today’s hybrid networks challenge complete network visibility. Traditional data centers, virtual machines, and the Cloud serve to obscure and leave networks vulnerable to operational inefficiency and security risks. The critical triad of tools for network visibility are: Packet Capture & Processing, Metadata Capture, and Streaming Analytics. These tools provide a holistic understanding of all the network activities of an organization, whether it is a communications service provider or enterprise, while retaining forensic evidence for performance or security investigations.

How to Make 40G Fiber More Accessible—A Primer on Cisco BiDi Technology

Just as large enterprises settle into 10G networking, bandwidth intensive applications and big data demands are forcing companies to adopt 40G network speeds. However, the shift from 10G to 40G requires a major investment in a new cabling infrastructure, leaving architects in a difficult position when trying to make upgrades. To make 40G more accessible, Cisco, a Garland Technology partner, created bidirectional (BiDi) 40G fiber connectivity. But the technology is not without its challenges.

TAP into Complete Visibility for SDN

on 1/10/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Technology Partners Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Centralized control of traffic flows is critical for monitoring 10G, 25G, 40G and 100G networks. But before implementing SDN, network architects must ensure that they have a solid visibility plane that ensures 100% of packets will be seen by the SDN controller. To achieve complete transparency with application monitoring tools, comprised of network analyzers, computer forensic analysis and data capture, data leakage prevention (DLP), intrusion detection, content filtering, lawful interception and data recording, network architects must provide a complete foundation of visibility.

Ensure Digital Integrity to Comply with GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a mandated regulatory standard designed to unify data privacy and security requirements. This regulation affects companies that provide services within the European Union; however, any company that provides services over the internet can be subject to this regulation.  With the ubiquity of internet based services, whether it is social media, streaming content, shopping or accessing your personal records online, personal data privacy and security practices will need to be regulated. Adoption is currently taking place in other regions around the world while using GDPR as a model to scrutinize privacy and security practices.

How to enable efficient and secure Industrial Control Systems

The factory of the future is digital and networked.  The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are a further optimization of processes and faster production cycles for production companies and critical infrastructures.  Industry 4.0 refers to the current trend of automation and data communication in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.  The basic principle of Industry 4.0 is that by connecting machines, work pieces and systems; businesses are creating intelligent networks along the entire value chain that can control each other autonomously. In an Industry 4.0 factory, components and systems are able to gain self-awareness and become self-predictive, which will provide management with more insight on the status of the factory.
