Get Real-time and Historical Insight

Wire data is data contained within the headers and payloads of network packets as traffic moves from one node to another. It is a rich source of user and application information. Wire data can be derived from SPAN ports, TAPs, packet brokers or locally on systems using promiscuous mode packet captures. PCAP captures from tools like Wireshark are also useful wire data sources.

Wire data analytics transforms raw packet data into human readable formats.

Wire data analytics is the process by which raw packet data is transformed into real-time and historical business and IT insight. This data in motion is what you’re learning in “continuously updated” mode, a constant mind-boggling flow of information that might include usernames, filenames, or website names. It is the only way to get to granular detail and fully understand what is happening on a network.

Why do you need Wire Data Analytics?

Gathering data off the wire can be accomplished without invasive probes or software agents that add overhead and complexity. Wire data capture does not require auditing on servers so will not slow down business critical applications. Use wire data analytics for:

  • Network security monitoring.
  • User activity monitoring.
  • Root cause analysis.
  • Real time and historical troubleshooting.
  • Bandwidth usage analysis.
  • Detailed web usage monitoring, both proxy and non-proxy.
  • Network and user forensics.
  • Trending and reporting for management.
  • Drill down to granular information; usernames, file names, web domains and URIs.
