Welcome to 2015! As we begin this New Year, WildPackets looks forward to beginning 2015 off with a bang. Last month, our very own Jay Botelho, director of product management for WildPackets cohosted two webinars with Keatron Evans, principal of Blink Digital Security. The webinars highlighted how network forensics can enable your in-house security team to track down, verify and characterize attacks. Keatron dove into a few real-world security breach scenarios as well as demonstrated best practices for attack analysis using network forensics. We looked at common “browse by” hacks, rootkit based exfiltration and covert channel communications as the attack vectors and how to investigate them. Both webinars were well received and participation numbers were high.
As we look forward to 2015, we understand the importance of getting your IT teams ready for what is in store. The job of network engineer seems to grow more difficult each day, as these teams continue to see an increasing number of complex tasks. Still, solutions do exist that can help lighten the load for these IT professionals. WildPackets is committed to providing solutions that enable network engineers to do their jobs more efficiently with pinpoint accuracy.
