Video: Government and Defense Network Monitoring Solutions

Government and Defense IT network infrastructures are challenged by a variety of vulnerabilities from several sources. Cloud migration and user operations in unstable networks are considered as increasing risk of data breaches and, more broadly, cyber threats for government and defense entities. The demand for IT modernization is growing, as is the level of risk around it.

To mitigate cyber threats, governments and defense agencies are developing specific programs and frameworks, like the Zero Trust cybersecurity model.

This framework requires all users to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validating security configuration before being granted access to applications and data. 

However, according to this framework, government IT networks must upgrade all the technical infrastructures to make it fully operational.

Modernizing the network infrastructure is also needed to face and solve these challenges:

  • Achieving real-time network monitoring
  • Detecting networking and operational issues before they cause downtime
  • Preventing unplanned downtime due to equipment failure
  • Network forensics
  • Remote access control
  • Remote troubleshooting (intermittent) issues on hard to reach remote sites
  • Managing cyber threats effectively

To gain full control of the networks, and therefore avoid data breaches and lower the risks of cyber-attacks, visibility is the only solution.

Where to start?

Accessing the network traffic

Get a reliable, real-time overview of the network with physical and virtual TAPs placed at strategic points. 

Managing & optimizing data flow

Complete the visibility architecture with the help of Network Packet Brokers (NPB) to deliver actionable network data to monitoring and security tools.

Data capture and analysis

Leave no blind spots: get dedicated tools that enable monitoring on the spot, but also remotely, as well as back-in-time analysis.
