The explosion of Web portal based applications in private or public cloud(based on 3tier architectures that are deployed in HA environments with database clusters), mobile devices, cloud applications, new IP class devices(non-traditional), has caused monitoring business cases to significantly increase.
Datacenter Performance: Ability to detect the root cause of the performance challenge at the different application infrastructure layers in order to identify which team should own troubleshooting:
DMZ: Detect Evasive Behavior attacks, enforce patching Identity: Verify and prevent privelige escalation attacks Security Event Management: SIEM/Logging solutions are overwhelmed and no longer able to accurately identify an attack methodology File Auditing/Change Mgt: Need to identify attempts at IP theft and Data Leakage from critical platforms
Unfortunately, when business-critical applications fail, the impact can be serious and you need tools that put you one-step ahead before your business is impacted, or perhaps your network is clogging as you try to transfer large files across it for central analysis? Continuously and easily, troubleshoot network activity in real time with state of the art appliance products.
A change management plan should:
Delve into the complex software framework and operating systems of modern servers to extract vast amounts of performance and forensic data to support all aspects of Application Performance Management (APM) from the server perspective. These solutions provide analysis for any type of application environment. The APM solution constantly monitors thousands of system and application metrics within each server, across all application tiers and automatically detects and ranks performance and behavior anomalies. Provide your IT team with the visibility and actionable insight to deliver the application performance users and your business demands.
Employ a real-time view and APM solutions will help to ensure the reliability and speed of business-critical applications in the following key areas:
The anti-evasion portfolio consists of unique technologies and solutions for organizations and enterprises of all sizes – from all sectors. Our edge is our 24/7, automated evasion testing environment – that runs 1-2 million AET test runs every day – and our dedicated team that collaborates with academics and test labs. If your organization has data assets of value to cyber criminals, you could be a target for AET-borne stealth attacks.
As major enterprise customers have moved partial application deployments to global SAAS datacenters, performance in between the datacenters has become difficult to monitor. Amazon AWS, Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce.com, internal datacenters, and partner datacenters, all are communicating over private and public links, as well as a rapidly growing population of mobile users.
Traditional infrastructure performance vendors required significant amounts of probes at key datacenters in order to verify infrastructure performance. Currently, a new generation of vendors with SAAS capabilities is enabling the visibility of the life of a transaction request from the mobile device, across the Internet, in and out of a SAAS datacenter and the corporate datacenter, and back.
Deploy private agents within the enterprise environment as a Linux package or virtual appliance, or use the Public Agent infrastructure to set up tests to collect performance metrics for HTTP, DNS, TCP, IP, as well as BGP from multiple locations. Examine the different layers of application delivery one by one with X-Layer and navigate from layer to layer to find the root cause of problems, whether inside or outside your network. See for the first time how BGP routing changes affect the network quality and affect the application performance. Visualize complex network problems using the interactive path visualization, generate custom reports, configure alerts, create dashboards and use our API to pull data for your custom analysis. Remove the finger pointing and time consuming manual data exchange process with interactive sharing capability that enables enterprises and cloud providers to see the same picture. Cloud providers can now interact with data shared by Enterprises and even set alerts on them.
Available statistics include:
These solutions provide End to End metrics layer with Layer 2- Layer 7 shareable information with a SAAS console, to be able to query all the different points/hops that a global, national, regional request takes in order to provide you with the exact device that is having performance challenges.
Many organizations have no way to detect when:
To answer these questions requires continuous and non-intrusive auditing of every single access event on your network. Today’s solutions offer the ability to detect critical events, notify the right people, provide the context needed to address potentially unauthorized access or changes and can helps CISO's make their risk management processes more efficient and effective. Improve your ability to detect possible security breaches, misconfigurations, and other issues in real-time by providing real-time alerting based on file activity, Active Directory changes, permissions changes, and other events. Alert criteria and output are easily configurable so that the right people and systems can be notified about the right things, at the right times in the right ways.
