    Source: Ixia, a Keysight business
    White Paper: In the past, static programming for data filtering to security and monitoring tools has been a good practice. Unfortunately, with the myriad of changing security threats and the need for maximum network uptime, IT personnel cannot accept the time limitations of that process anymore.

  • Validate Your Security Device Readiness Before Bad Actors Get A Chance
    Source: Ixia, a Keysight business
    White Paper: Networks are under constant attack by hackers and security threats. To thwart many of the attacks, security equipment like firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and web application firewalls (WAF) are being deployed. However, these devices must be loaded with the software updates (patches) that actually protect against the various threats. In fact, patches being up to date is one of the most critical lines of defense against security threats. However, keeping up with patch management can get confusing.
  • The Key To Reducing SIEM Alerts and Lost Productivity
    Source: Ixia, a Keysight business
    White Paper: Even with firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and a wide array of security tools in place, businesses still miss attacks and suffer major breaches every day. Why? One reason is that the sheer volume of security alerts being generated places a huge processing strain on the security team and the infrastructure itself. According to a Ponemon Institute report1, security teams at large enterprises waste more than 20,000 hours per year chasing false-positive alerts. In addition, 44% of security alerts are never investigated. This translates into wasted time and money along with an increased risk of falling victim to an attack.
