Best Practices for Network Monitoring

Proper network monitoring consists of more than just attaching a security and monitoring tool to a tap or SPAN port. Learn how a network packet broker can be effectively used to:

  • Filter out unnecessary data flooding your security monitoring tools to make them more efficient
  • Load balance data across multiple tools to extend the life of those existing tools
  • Perform packet slicing to improve network security and increase regulatory compliance
  • Perform header stripping to make security and monitoring tools more efficient
  • Take advantage of component automation to reduce costs and improve service efficiency

This document provides the basic information you need, in a straight forward and condense format, to help you optimize your network visibility and monitoring architecture.
