LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Winter will soon be on its way out and Spring on its way in. We are looking forward to the upcoming installment of our Coffee Corner chat series with Jay and Chris on Cyber Security. You can check out previous chats on our YouTube channel as they address everything from VoIP analysis to wireless.
Cyber security has been a topic on everyone's mind with the recent Symantec security breach and other publicized network hacks, driving home the fact that companies need to have contingency plans in place, as no amount of security can protect all of your data all of the time. With this in mind, we are releasing our Cyber Attack Preparedness kit as well as a whitepaper dedicated to network forensics. Be sure to check out all we have to offer on the security front.
We're having another quiz this month! The topic? Application visibility. The prize? If you ace it, you have a chance to win one of two $125 Amazon Gift Cards (US entrants only). Good luck!
As always, we would like to thank you for subscribing to the Peeks Newsletter. We continue to strive to provide you with engaging and informative content and hope that you'll join us this Spring – virtually at one of our webinars or in person at one of our roundtables.
FOCUS ON: Cyber Security
In light of the recent headlined cyber security breaches, we wanted to highlight an integral, but often overlooked, part of your network security plan: network forensics. Network forensics is crucial both for protecting your network from breaches as well as understanding what has happened after an attack has occurred. Not only does network forensics help you solve security attacks, it can also help you on a business front with violations of industry regulations to degradation in application performance. Whether accidental or malicious, the key is to have a solution in place now – before you have a need for incident analysis or require data to investigate an attack.
EXTENSIBILITY SOFTWARE: New Cloud Stats Plug-in
As more companies transition to the cloud, the use of IT systems and networks also undergoes a transformation. Users make less "internal" connections in exchange for connections to hosted, cloud-based systems. In order to help ease this transition, WildPackets has come up with a Cloud Stats plug-in that makes it easier for network administrators to manage their networks by recognizing a cloud service by name, not IP address. Now you can display the host names of cloud services in OmniPeek. If you are an OmniPeek user, you can download the plug-in here.
