Peeks Newsletter Heading

Letter from the Editor

In October, we released a survey on the state of faster network deployment. Surveying more than 100 network engineers and IT directors on their network capacity and performance management, we learned about the problems they faced through the transition to faster speed, higher capacity networks like 10G and higher.

One of the most interesting things we found was that network visibility and network forensics at 10G speeds and higher are the biggest challenges to those surveyed. Because of this, we have dedicated this edition of Peeks to these topics so that you have all the information you need when you’re organization makes the transition.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and we hope you can join us for some of our upcoming events and webinars.

Blog: Key Components Every Network Forensics Solution Should Have to Avoid Data Breaches

In a recent report conducted by Verizon on data breaches, the typical data breach is discovered only after many months. Worst of all, 70 percent of the time, an organization learns about a data breach from an outsider – not a good way to start your day when your company is featured in a New York Times data breach scandal .Read the blog.
