Using a Network Analyser as a Security Tool
Because firewalls and other defensive security measures are not failsafe, you need additional tools to detect and respond to security breaches as they occur. A network analyser can detect known (and even some unknown) virus attacks and make the clean-up process much more efficient.
Network Analysers are designed to watch the network, identify issues and alert administrators of problem scenarios. These features make the analyser an excellent tool to locate network security breaches, and to help identify and isolate virus-infected systems.
This whitepaper shows how using a network analyser can enhance network security, which analyser features are essential for this task and how an analyser should be a part of any IT professional’s security incident response plan.
