We Have Your Back
 


We understand the delicacy and complexities of the challenges that are faced within the energy industry's networks. With our ability to develop specialized solutions that give our agencies the technology they need, we have been able to play a crucial part in our customers' security.

 

 

Like you, we are constantly striving to improve our technology to best suit your needs. 

The Challenge

Raising
Traffic
Volumes

  • Want access to large amounts of data with existing tools

  • Downtime becomes a greater risk and need for quality TAPs and Packet Brokers increases

Increased

Network
Complexity

  • Increased expenditure in network infrastructure

  • Managing both network and security teams increases in difficulty

  • Less effective network visibility

Failure
To
Optimize

  • Uncompetitive latency and bandwidth damages quality.

  • The user experience, operational efficiency and security suffers

 

The Solution

Raising Traffic Volumes:

Increased Network Complexity:





 


 

Failure to Optimize:

Companies in the energy sector often find themselves wanting to enhance and expand their network without wanting to buy new network tools. Network Critical helps these companies by providing intelligent aggregation methods, which increases the efficiency and effectiveness of current tools while minimizing rack space. The SmartNA-PortPlus and SmartNA-PortPlus HyperCore are excellent long-term solutions, providing 100 to 400G of traffic to your existing monitoring platforms.

 

​To tackle increased network complexities, our customers implement a suitable network packet broker platform in order to see everything within their network. This ensures network teams and network security teams can get the access to the required traffic when they need it, without the internal disputes.

Our packet brokers allow for increased network visibility so users can gain the most accurate information; allowing for well-informed decision making. Plus, you can gain a significant cost saving on your monitoring solutions. Clever aggregating and filtering allows you to send only the required information to the tooling.

Network Critical's tools are precise for the most successful network performance, allowing users to meet external SLAs and gain the most out of their network. Only top-of-the-range products such as the products you see in the Product Comparison Chart (below) will allow for excellent network performance.

'Continuous monitoring is critical to digitization and automation of our many monitoring systems. Being able to monitor remote sites from a single location keeps our systems up to date without having a large staff running around in trucks.'

BP needed to connect multiple tools for monitoring and security of IT and OT systems. They used our Passive Fiber Optical TAPs in over 10 locations for centralized monitoring of critical information and operational systems, providing high level service assurance and robust protection against attacks that can cripple production.​

  • High level service assurance

  • 100% of traffic received

  • Protection against going offline
