Each whitepaper provides details on how the CloudShark solution helps leverage your existing investment in capture files and keeps your data secure.
Packet-capture files—files that store captured network traffic—are essential for network analysis, security analysis, threat remediation, network and application performance tuning, and device testing. Filled with details such as application protocols, error codes, and timestamps, capture files provide invaluable information for anyone interested in analyzing the performance of applications or networks. No wonder that network administrators, security experts, and other IT professionals rely on capture files for their daily work.
Enterprises use capture files every day, but they rarely organize them. In most organizations, capture files are scattered across the network. They're found on the laptops of network administrators and field technicians who generate capture files for troubleshooting. They're found on network devices such as switches and routers that generate capture files automatically for logging. They're found on the desktop systems of help desk personnel, who generate capture files to diagnose problems for the end user. And they're found in network forensics appliances, which monitor network traffic over hours or days for monitoring and trouble-shooting mission-critical services.
