Letter from the Editor

We at WildPackets certainly hope your 2013 was successful and prosperous. Are you ready for 2014?

Based on top networking trends of 2013, 451 Research found security (22 percent) is the top networking pain point, followed by capacity (19 percent), budget (18 percent), network monitoring (13 percent) and wireless (12 percent). We believe this will continue into 2014 and WildPackets is here to help you with your New Year's Work resolution to improve and optimize your networks.

Our first newsletter of 2014 is focused on Network Forensics…a hot topic to address these top networking issues across security, network performance and monitoring and wireless reliability.

We wish you and your organization a happy and prosperous 2014 and hope you can join us for some of our upcoming events and webinars.
