When you should apply network forensics

Forensics can be applied to many situations to solve performance, security and policy problems on today’s high-speed networks. These include:

  • Finding proof of a security attack
  • Troubleshooting intermittent performance issues
  • Monitoring user activity for compliance with IT and HR policies
  • Identifying the source of data leaks
  • Monitoring business transactions
  • Troubleshooting VoIP and video over IP

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.
