Letter from the Editor

It's hard to believe it is already December! This month, we released the results of our survey on 802.11ac adoption. To that effect, we saw a lot of traction in the media.

With 2015 just around the corner, we've been putting some thought into 2015 trends in the network and wireless troubleshooting sector with a focus on network forensics. Network security is becoming more of an issue in the enterprise with an increased number of breaches and hacks in the past year. In 2014 alone, 47 percent of American adults had their personal information exposed by hackers, that's 432 million hacks. Looking forward to 2015 - the more organizations focus on forensics, and treat security incidents as a series of offenses, the safer the expanding ecommerce marketplace will be for all involved.

To read more about what WildPackets sees for 2015, take a look at our predictions piece on VMBlog.

Happy Holidays and a joyous New Year from all of us at WildPackets!

Sincerely,
Glenn Munlawin

Leave 2014 Cybercrimes in The Rear View Mirror; Look Ahead with Network Forensics

In 2014 alone, 47 percent of American adults had their personal information exposed by hackers, that's 432 million hacks. There may not be any police tape or chase scenes involved, but don't be fooled- cybercrime is just as serious as any other legal violation.

Looking forward to 2015 - the more organizations focus on forensics, and treat security incidents as a series of offenses, the safer the expanding ecommerce marketplace will be for all involved. Heightened awareness and constant vigilance should be a collective goal. With so many shady figures lurking in cyber space, organizations need to treat cyber crime like the serious issue it is.

Join us on Wednesday, December 17 at 8:30am Pacific time, where we will have special guest, Keatron Evans co-author of Chained Exploits: Advanced Hacking Attacks from Start to Finish co-hosting with WildPackets Director of Product Management, Jay Botelho, talk about network forensics. In this webinar, you'll learn how network forensics—network traffic recording along with powerful search and analysis tools—can enable your in–house security team to track down, verify, and characterize attacks. Keatron will walk you through a few real-world security breach scenarios and demonstrate live best practices for attack analysis using network forensics to find the proof you need quickly to take action.
