Monitoring IT networks to improve performance and mitigate risks

Avoid data breaches and fortify the cybersecurity of government networks

Network connectivity is the foundation for any critical work: from law enforcement to public policy to defense. But if there is a lack of clear visibility into the network’s performance, unexpected downtime or breaches could endanger governments and national defense entities worldwide, especially if these become the target of skilled hackers.

Government IT network infrastructures are challenged by a variety of vulnerabilities coming out from several sources, reflecting the need for a broad digital transformation. Cloud migration and user operations in unstable networks have been considered as the activities lifting risk of data breaches and, more broadly, cyber threats for government or 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 currently developing specific programs and frameworks, like the Zero Trust cybersecurity model. This framework requires all users, including those inside the organization’s enterprise network, to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validating security configuration and posture, before being granted or keeping access to applications and data. However, to adopt 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 the following 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

Do not wait for a breach before deploying network security solutions

Upgrading to first-class network infrastructures is the key to mitigating cyber risks and improving performance. A network can lack security capabilities if, for example, it relies solely on signature-based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), or makes use of traditional firewalls that have reached end-of-life. To gain full control of the networks, and therefore avoid data breaches and lower the risks of cyber-attacks, visibility is the only solution. Monitoring government IT networks: where to start? Here is the path to follow:

Accessing the network traffic

Get a reliable, real-time overview of the network with physical and virtual TAPs placed at strategic points. To ensure fail-safe access for active in-line network security and performance tools, Bypass TAPs can be deployed to actively monitor tool availability.

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.

Real-time network monitoring starts with high-quality infrastructures. Discover the Profitap portfolio, or request a quote for customized government IT network monitoring infrastructure solutions.
