“Who Makes the Rules?” The Hidden Risks of Defining Visibility Policies

Imagine what would happen if the governor of one state got to change all the laws for the whole country for a day, without the other states or territories ever knowing about it. And then the next day, another governor gets to do the same. And then another. Such foreseeable chaos is precisely what happens when multiple IT or security administrators define traffic filtering policies without some overarching intelligence keeping tabs on who’s doing what. Each user acts from their own unique perspec...

5 Ways to Get Agents to Embrace Quality Monitoring

Few processes in the contact center are as contentious as quality monitoring. When not carefully explained and carried out with tact and sensitivity, monitoring smacks of spying.

Advanced Packet Filtering with Ixia’s Advanced Filtering Modules (AFM)

An important factor in improving network visibility is the ability to pass the correct data to monitoring tools. Otherwise, it becomes very expensive and aggravating for most enterprises to sift through the enormous amounts of data packets being transmitted (now and in the near future). Bandwidth requirements are projected to continue increasing for the foreseeable future – so you may want to prepare now. As your bandwidth needs increase, complexity increases due to more equipment being added to...

The Brains of Sapling’s Clock Systems

The human brain is responsible for everything that we do. It is responsible for the decisions we make, our reasoning behind that decision, and then physically carrying out that decision. The human brain may possess the same general structure as other mammals, but is much larger relative to body size.

Just like the brain in a human system, the master clock acts as the brain in a Sapling S...

For example one can enter the info hash into a search field and get back information such as the IP address, user name, etc. Bittorent is a complex protocol, tracking it and extractin...

Wire Data – More Flexible Than Log Data?

Just after finishing a pretty long road trip around the US, New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Chicago, Austin and San Francisco. Travelling around the US this time of year can be very ‘challenging’ for sure, some airports can handle the snow and some like Newark do an OK job. Although sitting in an airplane at the gate for over 3 hours in Newark Saturday night, waiting for my flight to Shannon to leave and one of the pilots to arrive was not an act of God. Imagine he was the one guy who got c...
