As our industry prepares for the 8th annual SharkFest Conference, Datacom Systems is gearing up for our first ever sponsorship of the event, taking place June 22-25. SharkFest is one of the foremost educational conferences in the network monitoring industry, offering network engineers, architects, and other professionals the chance to exchange Wireshark tips and best practices. In addition to collaborative problem solving and lab projects, attendees and sponsors benefit from expert-led sessions and mentoring.
When customers need to troubleshoot their cloud-based applications, they reach for two things: Wireshark and a Network Tap. Wireshark’s open source network protocol analyzer capability allows users to decode packet communication through their networks to identify problem areas. Inserting a network tap between the Carrier demarc and local firewall provides customers with access to their data without relying on port mirroring techniques or incurring costly downtime. See how Datacom partnered with CVM, Inc to apply this strategy to a client's cloud-managed wireless network.
The Anthem Insurance security breach sent shockwaves through the industry, but many took solace in the organization’s lack of data encryption. In the case of increasingly sophisticated attacks, encryption alone is simply not enough.
Many factors come into play when choosing between copper and fiber taps. For financial institutions large and small, this selection can significantly impact network security and overall budget. Can you afford to make an uninformed decision? See how Datacom's new FTP-1516 fiber tap can maximize your budget.
