Benefits of a NetFlow Performance Deployment in Complex Environments

Since no two environments are identical and no network remains stagnant in Network Monitoring today, the only thing we can expect is the unexpected! The network has become a living dynamic and complex environment that requires a flexible approach to monitor and analyze. Network and Security teams are under pressure to go beyond simple monitoring techniques to quickly identify the root causes of issues, de-risk hidden threats and to monitor network-connected things. A solution’s flexibility refers to not only its

5 Ways Flow Based Network Monitoring Solutions Need to Scale

A common gripe for Network Engineers is that their current network monitoring solution doesn’t provide the depth of information needed to quickly ascertain the true cause of a network issue. Many already have over-complicated their monitoring systems and methodologies by continuously extending their capabilities with a plethora of add-ons, or relying on disparate systems that often don’t interface very well with each other. There is also an often mistaken belief that the network monitoring solutions that they have invested in will suddenly give

The Strategic Value of Advanced Netflow for Enterprise Network Security

 Networks today are exponentially faster, bigger and more complex than those of just a few years ago. With thousands of devices going online for the first time each minute, and the data influx continuing unabated, it’s fair to say that we’re in the throes of an always-on culture. As the network becomes arguably the most valuable asset of the 21st century business, IT departments will be looked at to provide not just operational functions, but, more importantly, strategic value. Today’s

How NetFlow Solves for Mandatory Data Retention Compliance

Compliance in IT is not new and laws regulating how organizations should manage their customer data exist such as: HIPPA, PCI, SCADA and Network transaction logging has begun to be required of business. Insurance companies are gearing up to qualify businesses by the information they retain to protect their services and customer information. Government and industry regulations and enforcement are becoming increasingly stringent. Most recently many countries have begun to implement Mandatory Data Retention laws for telecom service providers. Governments require

NetFlow for Usage-Based Billing and Peering Analysis

Usage–based billing refers to the methods of calculating and passing back the costs of running a network to the consumers of data that occur through the network. Both Internet Service Providers (ISP) and Corporations have a need for Usage-based billing with different billing models. NetFlow is the ideal technology for usage-based billing because it allows for the capture of all transactional information pertaining to the usage and some smart NetFlow technologies already exist to assist in the counting, allocation and

How to Improve Cyber Security with Advanced Netflow Network Forensics

Most organizations today deploy network security tools that are built to perform limited prevention – traditionally “blocking and tackling” at the edge of a network using a firewall or by installing security software on every system. This is only one third of a security solution, and has become the least effective measure. The growing complexity of the IT infrastructure is the major challenge faced by existing network security tools. The major forces impacting current network security tools are the rising

5 Benefits of NetFlow Performance Monitoring

In today’s global marketplace there has never been more pressure on organizations to reduce costs in order to be competitive. No longer can an organization afford to ignore the ever-escalating costs associated with increasing complexity and the lack of visibility of network traffic. Time is money! A great deal of time is spent on painstaking and often unsuccessful searches for the causes of performance and security incidents and monitoring inappropriate network use and risk. Applications continue to grow in complexity

Deploying NetFlow as a Countermeasure to Threats like CNB

Few would debate legendary martial artist Chuck Norris’ ability to take out any opponent with a quick combination of lightning-fast punches and kicks. Norris, after all, is legendary for his showdowns with the best of fighters and being the last man standing in some of the most brutal and memorable fight scenes. It’s no surprise, then, that hackers named one of their most dubious botnet attacks after “tough guy” Norris, which wreaked havoc on internet routers worldwide. The “Chuck Norris”
