The bigger your network becomes, the more amount of threats that could potentially reap disastrous effects to your corporation become present. At a time in history where it is unlikely you can read through a newspaper without reading about some recent incident of a cyber attack, key tools such as network packet brokers are vital to empowering businesses all over the world to take back control over their infrastructure once and for all.
In fact, VSS Monitoring’s network packet brokers drive the functionality of your existing security tools to unparalleled levels, providing real-time, bi-directional insight into all SSL traffic taking place across network boundaries (LAN, WAN, or Cloud). According to the company’s recently released Network Packet Broker for Dummies book, “Network packet brokers (NPBs) enable your tools to perform optimally while providing unprecedented network visibility. Unlike their TAP predecessors, NPBs are sophisticated, high-end devices that provide traffic regeneration, aggregation, load balancing, packet de-duplication, and much, much more.”
Virtually any service provider within the telecommunications, television and IT industries can see multiple advantages from implementing a network packet broker due to the fact that an ultra high level of visibility is vital in enabling companies in every industry to see exactly what is taking up the largest amount of bandwidth and how to better optimize operations. With a network packet broker in place, network operators can achieve higher service availability, lower labor costs for network analysis, lower analysis costs and see greater subscriber and revenue protection.
If you are in search of even more network packet broker-related information, then be sure to attend next week’s complimentary webinar titled, “Blind as a Bat? Or Eagle Vision Into Encrypted Packets,” slated to take place on Monday, November 5 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The not-to-miss event will feature SANS Security Analyst Dave Shackleford in addition to VSS Monitoring (News - Alert) Senior Director of Security Solutions Tony Zirnoon.
