Description

One of the most difficult challenges facing Security, VoIP, and Network Management Solutions is how to implement network tools onto enterprise networks. Enterprise networks are becoming more complex when looking at how to monitor and capture data. It can be difficult or impossible to gain access to network SPAN Ports or inserting In-line Devices like Intrusion Prevention Systems into enterprise networks. Contention for network access is a major problem. Learn how to design a network access solution that meets the requirements for security, network monitoring, and overall network access solutions. We help solve the questions, How do I get secure access to the network for capturing data or monitoring data traffic? Why TAP your network?

We make it easy to access, monitor, and collect your Network Traffic. WHY TAP YOUR NETWORK? Presented by Chris Bihary, Director of Sales www.criticaltap.com

How do I connect my Network Tool? Brief History It’s simple, I need access to the data!

Brief History

How do I connect my Network Tool? How are Network Tools Deployed? SPAN or Mirrored Ports (switches) TAP – Test Access Port In-Line Appliances

How are Network Tools Deployed?

SPAN or Mirrored Ports (switches)

TAP – Test Access Port

In-Line Appliances

Mirrored Port or Cisco Term SPAN ( S witch P ort An alyzer) With SPAN, traffic from any port on the network switch can be mirrored or copied to another port, which is designated as the SPAN port. You can then connect the SPAN port to the Network Tool SPAN / Mirrored Switch Port Managed Ethernet Switch SPAN Port

Mirrored Port or Cisco Term SPAN ( S witch P ort An alyzer)

With SPAN, traffic from any port on the network switch can be mirrored or copied to another port, which is designated as the SPAN port. You can then connect the SPAN port to the Network Tool

Benefits Internal Switch Traffic Visible VLAN’s are Visible Limitations Contention for SPAN Ports Network Engineers, Security, VoIP, etc I have no SPAN Ports Available Monitoring device is missing packets due to port over-subscription Degraded network switch performance when monitoring a busy segment Cannot view physical layer 1 & 2 errors Full duplex monitoring is not available Requires re-configuration of the network switch Authorization Problems Switch Configuration Errors can cause major Network Problems SPAN / Mirrored Switch Port

Benefits

Internal Switch Traffic Visible

VLAN’s are Visible

Limitations

Contention for SPAN Ports

Network Engineers, Security, VoIP, etc

I have no SPAN Ports Available

Monitoring device is missing packets due to port over-subscription

Degraded network switch performance when monitoring a busy segment

Cannot view physical layer 1 & 2 errors

Full duplex monitoring is not available

Requires re-configuration of the network switch

Authorization Problems

Switch Configuration Errors can cause major Network Problems

What is a TAP? Test Access Port (TAP) Provides a copy of the traffic flowing between two (2) Network Devices Fail Safe Technology - 100% Network Availability even in an event of power loss 100 % Visibility of the Full Duplex Network Traffic including Layer 1 & Layer 2 Errors Sensor are 100% Isolated & Secure CriticalTAP is a layer 1 device – Easy to install & Manage Creates a Permanent Access Point for Network Tools
