Letter from the Editor
High profile network breaches are back in the headlines. Large Internet retailers have reported breaches that put more than 110 million customers at risk of online threats. These events leave you wondering - is your network safe? Do you have the data you need to adequately monitor and analyze suspicious activity, especially on your high-speed network links?
These recent breaches bypassed all intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) and all enterprise-grade antivirus tools. We believe a packet-based network forensics solution that records all network activity 24/7 is the best solution to prevent such events from occurring. To help make sure you’re prepared, this month’s edition of the Peeks Newsletter focuses exclusively on network forensics.
