A variety of uses  

Perhaps most surprising is that the survey found organizations are not deploying network forensics solutions for any one particular use. For example, 25 percent of respondents are using network forensics to troubleshoot security breaches, 24 percent are using it to verify and troubleshoot transactions, and the rest of the respondents are using it in some degree to analyze network performance, verify VoIP problems or validate compliance.

Network forensics is the recording, storage and analysis of network traffic. As networks continue to get faster and connect to more devices, it becomes even more important for IT engineers to be able to replay, re-examine or closely analyze traffic so they can identify the cause of performance problems and uncover the source of security attacks.

In a 2014 WildPackets survey, "Trends in Network Forensics: A Look at Adoption, Uses and Importance," findings suggested that organizations are severely limiting their ability to properly monitor and troubleshoot their 10G or faster networks due to the lack of network forensics solutions in place. The survey not only revealed how many organizations currently have a network forensics solution, but how they are using it to effectively monitor and analyze their networks performance.

This slideshow highlights the other findings from WildPackets' Trends in Network Forensics survey.
