Network analysis is inevitable. Todays companies can't afford downtimes and can't take the risk of illegal actions on the wire.
Firewalls and Intruder Detection Systems (IDS) may block attacks from the Internet. But they are less effective against illegal action from internal sources. And they can't really tell you in advance what to do in order to shut hidden doors that attackers may use – from inside or ourside. And if "it" has happend they'll send warning messages but won't provide administrators with trace data for forensic analysis.
Facing the possible attack vectors needs knowing them, needs enganging them every day, based on intelligence provided by permanent analysis of data communication and underlying configurations (clients, servers, switches, routers, VoIP nodes, etc.).
Furthermore, performance degrations as well as performance reserves have to be acknowledged and put into action on a daily basis.
Actually, all this should happen. Normally.
But in fact data communication analysis doesn't take place in many companies – because it's expensive and cumbersome. If ever done, it's on a random basis. The answer on this can only be:
Full automated analysis
From data recording (writing communication data to disk) to data analysis and reports and notification, everything should be full automated. Administrators should be allowed to rely upon.
The Synapse analysis suite provides you with all this.
- Analysis agents permanently save data communication streams to disk, perform expert analysis of saved LAN packets, create statistics & reports and send event notifications to (one or more) central event log collector(s).
- Event log collecors aggregate all incoming event notifications. Event log filter engines perform a permanently running task: Collected events are scanned, categorized, filtered, saved to reports – and at least e-mails are sent to administrators. Each single event filter may define one or more individual mail recipients.
This is real quality management
Automated data recording, data analysis, and event notification to all responsible technicians and administrators.
- 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year.
Synapse Networks will you provide you with the software or with managed services (remote access).
Synapse Networks operates analysis agents on five continents for monitoring customer's data communication: In Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia customer's LAN/WAN traffic is analysed by Synapse Networks.
- Precisely. Automated. All the time.
