Data Leakage Prevention
Data leakage prevention tools are designed to detect and prevent the unauthorised transmission of data to outside sources. These tools are particularly important to organisations that process highly classified or sensitive information, such as government agencies or banking and insurance companies.
Why do you need to use an access technology solution with your data leakage prevention tool?
Because these tools need to be installed inline, they can become a source of network downtime. When the device fails or needs to be maintained, the entire network needs to be brought down to perform these fixes.
Gaining access to 100% of network traffic is essential for successful data leakage prevention. Switched portanalyser (SPAN) ports may not provide 100% of network traffic if they are over-subscribed or they may not be available for use when needed. It may also be necessary to monitor multiple network segments simultaneously and aggregate the data to your data leakage prevention tools or to replicate the data to more than one network tool at the same time.
Network Critical solutions for Data Leakage Prevention
With Network Critical’s V-Line™ products and their fail-safe technology, it is possible to install these network tools virtually, inline. If one of the connections to the V-Line Test Access Point (TAP) is lost, the other connection is automatically dropped. This will allow the network traffic to continue to flow if power is lost to the TAP or if the connected device needs to be disconnected or updated.
By implementing a Network Critical Access Solution within your network infrastructure you can solve the problems associated with installing a data leakage prevention tool. Breakout TAPs provide easy single-segment monitoring, while the Aggregating and Regenerating TAPs allow you to combine different network segments as well copy your data traffic to several network tools at the same time. The Smart Network Access System gives you the ability to do all of these things in a high-density environment and provides the flexibility to adjust to the changing needs of your data centre.
