Server Log Files Do Not Always Have the Answer

In today’s world, security information and event management (SIEM) systems are hot technology. Some people deploy them because of compliance needs, others because they need access to data to troubleshoot problems. SIEM systems themselves are useless without sources of data and most of them connect to server log files and other network devices. The problem is that there are limitations with server log files when it comes to usability analysis. A good example of this is Ransomware . It is a big is...

Campus to Cloud Network Visibility

Visibility. Network visibility. Simple terms that are thrown around quite a bit today. But the reality isn’t quite so simple. Why? Scale for one. It’s simple to maintain visibility for a small network. But large corporate or enterprise networks? That’s another story altogether. Visibility solutions for these large networks have to scale from one end of the network to the other end – from the campus and branch office edge to the data center and/or private cloud. Managing and troubleshooting perfo...

None of these are good, and unfortunately, they are all very hard to dia...

It does not matter whether the activity is security or performance related. If users are reporting the ‘network is slow’ or an ISP notifies you of suspicious activity, you need that single reference point to actually see what i...
