A Simple Solution To Combatting Virtual Data Center Blind Spots

Blind spots are a long-established threat to virtual data centers. They are inherent to virtual machine (VM) usage and technology due to the nature of VMs, lack of visibility for inter- and intra-VM data monitoring, the typical practices around the use of VM’s, and the use of multiple hypervisors in enterprise environments. Virtual machines by their nature hide inter- and intra-VM traffic. This is because the traffic stays within in a very small geographic area. As I mentioned in a previous blog...

Why Just Backing Up Your Router Config is the Wrong Thing To Do

One of the most fundamental best practices of any IT organization is to have a backup strategy and system in place for critical systems and devices. This is clearly needed for any disaster recovery situation and most IT departments have definitive plans and even practiced methodologies set in place for such an occurrence. However what many IT pros don’t always consider is how useful it is to have backups for reasons other than DR and the fact that for most network devices (and especially ro...

Encryption: The Next Big Security Threat

As is common in the high-tech industry, fixing one problem often creates another. The example I’m looking at today is network data encryption. Encryption capability, like secure sockets layer (SSL), was devised to protect data packets from being read or corrupted by non-authorized users. It’s used on both internal and external communications between servers, as well as server to clients. Many companies (e.g. Google, Yahoo, WebEx, Exchange, SharePoint, Wikipedia, E*TRADE, Fidelity, etc.) have tur...

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...
