TCP/IP Works so why are IT Teams Flying

Among all the change within IT, the one constant has been TCP/IP technology!

When Vinton Cerf and Robert Kahn invented and deployed TCP/IP in the 1980's no one expected it to be the foundation of all modern communications! Yet still today we are still discovering new ways to use this foundation technology and we are still struggling with Knowing our Networks and Protecting them! Visibility is the Key - The more you see the better you can manage and protect.

While reliable and scalable, this reliance has consequences:

  1. IT teams know less about how IT infrastructure connects and functions

  2. There are no open standards defining the who, what, where, and how users and devices are communicating

The result: IT often struggles to keep on top of user experience, performance issues, and security threats.

The answer is enriched flow records combined with sustained line-rate packet capture and analytics. Enriched flow strengthens standard/extended flow with network connectivity, user identity, and infrastructure KPI's ( Key Performance Indicator ) retained in a single record and stored unaltered over time.
