Eliminating Blind Spots to Detect and Decrypt Deep Packet Traffic

When securing your network, obtaining useful data to reduce vulnerabilities is the epicenter of an infrastructure. To protect your data, acquiring a full picture of your network is important since various security issues arise when data traffic is missed. By gaining complete packet-level visibility, networks can ensure continuous monitoring by detecting vulnerabilities in potential blind spots. Because these files are difficult to detect, security devices require active scanning and continuous non-intrusive monitoring.

The Nessus Network Monitor (NNM) and Garland Technology’s visibility solution provide fully comprehensive solutions for optimal data collection and continuous visibility. Delivering a full stream of network visibility and continuous monitoring, the solution completes active scanning with non-intrusive monitoring.


Portable Solution For Quick Monitoring Performance

1. For easy network access, Garland’s Portable TAPs provide complete packet visibility from any segment.

2. The packets are delivered to the Nessus Network Monitor, which delivers continuous monitoring and profiling of assets and analyzes network traffic at the packet level to provide visibility to vulnerabilities with full asset discovery.

Scalable Security at the Perimeter of Your Network Infrastructure

1. The modular Garland SelectTAPTM provides complete packet visibility and scalability to maximize port efficiency.

2. The PacketMAXTM aggregates, load balances, filters, and then distributes the optimized tapped traffic.

3. The aggregated traffic is sent to the Nessus Network Monitor where the data traffic is managed and monitored.


Eliminating Blind Spots And Continuous Monitoring Across Critical Infrastructures


1. Intelligent network visibility starts by using physical and virtual TAPs to copy full-duplex traffic from any IT and/or OT network at each layer and site. Garland’s network TAPs help overcome limitations that occur when SPAN Ports (switched port analyzer) are used, providing complete network visibility from each Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic control unit (PLCs), or segment that needs monitoring.

2. To optimize the network traffic, the tapped data is delivered from each station to Garland Technology’s PacketMAXTM for aggregation, load-balancing, and filtering.

3. Once aggregated, the packet-level data feeds tenable.ot for efficient and continuous monitoring.

Integration Benefits

By capturing and sending packet traffic from anywhere in the network from the Garland visibility products, the Nessus Network
Monitor can gain full visibility for deep packet inspection and vulnerability assessment. Nessus executes an intuitive vulnerability assessment for less time and effort to assess, prioritize, and remediate issues. The solution provides compliance and configured templates to audit against CIS benchmark and best practices. The scalable modular solution allows for future growth with port efficiency and zero overall cost per-port.

IT Ops and Sec Ops Benefits

• Live discovery of any digital asset across any computing environment.
• Continuous visibility into where an asset is secure or exposed, and to what extent.
• Prioritization of remediation based on business risk.
• Measurement of cyber exposure as a key risk metric for strategic decision support.
• Complete network visibility bypassing all live wire data ensuring no dropped packets for out-of-band tools.
• Over 450 out of the box, pre-configured templates are included for a range of IT and mobile assets to help quickly
understand where there are vulnerabilities.
• Reliable traffic aggregation, load balancing, and filtering – full control over traffic behavior and flexibility for aggregation
and regeneration.
