Security professionals are well aware of the dangers, but are struggling to cope with a constantly changing landscape and explosion in data, fueled in part by the Bring Your Own Device revolution, mobility, the cloud and virtualization.

APCON, the most comprehensive and intelligent network monitoring solution for Fortune 1000 companies and service providers, is offering commentary on the vital need for total network visibility in addressing today’s emerging security threats. Elaborating on the role of network monitoring switching architecture and the capabilities of tools employed in day-to-day operations, APCON released a free downloadable eBook titled "The Fight for Full Network Visibility in a Dangerous World” to educate network security on how to confront today’s security challenges by achieving full network visibility.
“In today’s network monitoring environment, what you don’t know – and what you can’t see – can expose an enterprise to serious and costly data breaches,” said Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON. “Security professionals are well aware of the dangers, but are struggling to cope with a constantly changing landscape and explosion in data, fueled in part by the Bring Your Own Device revolution, mobility, the cloud and virtualization.”
Total Network Visibility is Vital to Confronting New Threats
In many cases, the information flooding into networks at speeds upward of 10 gigabits is simply too much for the tools put in place to secure networks. Only a tiny portion of that data is analyzed, leading to a lack of visibility that impedes any ability to respond when security problems arise. APCON’s eBook highlights:
- Some of the biggest challenges in the quest for network visibility, from SPAN port contention to the tidal wave of data volume that overwhelms security tools
- Techniques being employed to deal with challenges, from network taps to advanced intelligent packet filtering and load balancing capabilities
- Scalability, uptime and other critical considerations to be made when rethinking network architecture
“To confront the dangerous challenges in today’s environment, enterprises need an entirely new approach to network architecture and analysis,” said Rauch. “It’s a tall order, but one within reach with today’s intelligent network monitoring switch technology. At APCON, our goal is to empower security professionals with a network where no data packet escapes inspection, and where operators can slice and dice data any way they want with maximum effectiveness and without breaking the bank.”
APCON will demonstrate its network monitoring and security solutions at the RSA conference in San Francisco from Feb. 24-28, 2014 at Booth 632.
