All organizations can benefit from network forensics

Forensics can play an important role in protecting networks from subtle and malicious security threats. Network forensics can enable an organization to adequately investigate and stop data breaches that threaten to cost organizations money, competitive advantage, or both. Collecting a complete record of network activity can be invaluable for addressing a host of technical, operational and organizational issues.

Network forensics is the process of capturing, storing and analyzing activity that takes place on a computer network. While it’s often associated with solving network security breaches, the practice can also help solve far more common network issues, like spikes in utilization, drops in VoIP call quality, identifying rogue activity, and improving both network and application performance.

In this slideshow, WildPackets, provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, explains the basics of network forensics and how it can be used to improve network performance at all organizations.
