Traffic Access

Profitap Academy

Network analysis starts with getting actionable data in a reliable and secure way. There are two common methods for gaining access to the network: test access points (TAPs) and switch port analyzer (SPAN). Deploying network TAPs is the key method for accessing network traffic. Network TAPs are more reliable and offer significant advantages over the use of SPAN ports to monitor the network, such as providing secure access to packets of all sizes and types by creating an exact copy of all traffic flowing across the network without impacting the network performance.

    Complete Network Visibility for Real-Time Detection and Response

    A threat that goes unseen will go undefeated. Network visibility is crucial to protecting organizations from cyber-attacks.
