The article goes on to say that excavating and searching through endless traffic data and logs manufactured by your network system is a lot like mining for gold, and punching random holes to look for a few nuggets of information isn't very efficient. Your search will be much more fruitful if you know where to look and what it will look like. Fort...

Once upon a time, all you needed was a firewall to call yourself “secure.” But then, things changed. More networks are created every day, every network is visible to the others, and they connect with each other all the time—no matter how far away or how unrelated. And malicious threats have taken notice . . . As the Internet got bigger, anonymity got smaller. It’s impossible to go “unnoticed” on the Internet now. Everybody is a target. Into today’s network landscape, every network is under the t...

5 Reasons Why You Must Back Up Your Routers and Switches

I’ve been working in the Network Management business for over 20 years, and in that time I have certainly seen my share of networks.

I find that a little amazing, since I also can’t ...
