Increase Network Visibility with SSL Decryption | Niagara Networks

Why SSL Decryption? The growing adoption of protocols to secure Internet traffic, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), is, paradoxically, giving cybercriminals a way to evade network defenses.  For example, Gartner Group predicts that, through 2019, more than 80 percent of enterprises' web traffic will be encrypted an...

Pervasive Network Visibility for SD-WAN Deployment | Niagara Networks

By: Yigal Amram January 28, 2019

In contrast to the other components of enterprise networks, the wide-area network (WAN) stands out as the most demanding to administer because it often includes a variety of services and devices with most of those devices at unsupported sites.

GUI for Network Visibility and User Experience

By: Yigal Amram November 27, 2018

As the saying goes: “Seeing is believing”. Seeing gives you the ability to react very quickly to what you view – on a required basis. In contrast, it also enables you to take your time to thoroughly study a situation (maybe viewing it from different angles and perspectives) before you go ahead and decide to act. This is the power of the user interface (UI) – specifically the graphic user interface (GUI). It optimizes the user experience (UX) and empowers

SPAN and Port Mirroring

By: Yigal Amram November 15, 2018

Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) is another way of saying “port mirror”. What’s helpful about the term “SPAN” – if you know the acronyms’ description – is that you are then aware that it is related to providing visibility of switch data traffic to other tools.
