Share Article

Innovative products and advanced features designed to address big data challenges add to APCON’s technology advantage.

APCON Inc., the industry leader for intelligent network monitoring and security support solutions will have a strong presence at RSA Conference 2013. APCON will display and demonstrate its suite of advanced network monitoring products to security professionals at the show (Booth No. 2451).

“Effective network monitoring is a critical element in any data security program, and APCON is leading the industry in intelligent network monitoring. We have the strongest portfolio of products designed to facilitate complete network visibility,” said Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON.

Big Data Creates Big Security Challenges

The volume of data passing over business-critical networks continues to grow year-over-year, with no signs of abatement. Network managers are tasked with keeping their networks secure in the face of a tidal wave of data that is certain to include attempts to exploit security weaknesses.

To ensure network security, managers need to create an environment of total visibility, yet keep their efforts within tight budgetary constraints. APCON helps meet total visibility requirements with a collection of tools that offer:

Packet deduplication – Duplicate packets can make up as much as 55 percent of network monitoring traffic. These duplicates reduce the efficiency of network monitoring tools, often leading to dropped packets. Additionally, session-based tools generally cannot monitor streams containing duplicate packets. APCON’s Packet Controller eliminates duplicate packets from up to four streams of 10G data traffic at full line rate.

Packet slicing – The ability to deliver a reduced volume of data to load-sensitive recording and analysis tools at line rate saves enterprises hundreds of thousands of dollars, while providing superior network monitoring performance.

Network taps – APCON now offers both passive and managed Tap products for failsafe enterprise-grade data collection.

Data capture, storage, and analysis – APCON’s INTELLASTORE compact 1G/10G network
monitoring switch offers 1.5TB of onboard disk space and the ability to record, play back, and
analyze network data captures using an embedded copy of the Wireshark® analysis software.

These products and capabilities allow network managers to gather network data from all monitoring points and then supply security tools with an efficiently managed stream of good, clean data, thereby enhancing the ability to identify and respond to security threats.

These products will be on display at the RSA Conference, held February 25-28 at San Francisco’s
Moscone Center. Live demonstrations of APCON technology will be available during all show hours at Booth No. 2451.
