To assure security, IT operations over many years have optimized the real-time analysis of network traffic and device information as the most economical approach to address infrastructure availability and performance. Collecting statistical information such as NetFlow, events, or aggregated data allows for use of less storage and analysis for event detection, alarming, and performance analysis, and planning for network, application, and security operations.
As cost-effective as this approach might seem, it is insufficient when it comes to detecting security vulnerabilities and validating mitigation attempts:
These issues have tangible impact on the organization. IBM-Security stated in their “2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report” that a data breach to the average US company results in over 25,000 data records stolen, costing the company as much as $8.2M per data breach.
Axellio developed PacketXpress™ to provide detailed packet data for any event and buffer the monitoring and analysis infrastructure from traffic spikes, which extends the useful life of the diverse security, network, and application operations infrastructure while reducing operation costs.
