Bring your own device (BYOD) makes healthcare network and information security more difficult to maintain. Implementing a dynamic, strong security system can assist with HIPAA compliance and compensate for the challenges brought about by BYOD.
In my previous articles we reviewed the overall topic of management interfaces to Taps and NPBs and took a deeper dive into Fault Management. In this chapter we will focus on the areas of configuration and provisioning management topics. Subsequent chapters will cover other management topics including software management, accounting, performance monitoring, security and remote access.
Security scanning of critical devices should be standard practice on networks, but what about other devices such as TAPs, Network Packet Brokers (NPB) and Bypass switches?
This article is the second in a multi-part series on the management of Taps and Network Packet Brokers. This chapter focuses on Fault Management including Detection, Correlation/Aggregation, Diagnosis/Isolation, Restoration, and Resolution.
