What Network Analysis Systems Are (And Why They Matter)

 

Network Monitoring systems like Perception are designed to give the user a deep level of understanding about their network and the activity on it.  From a protection perspective they differ from perimeter security and endpoint solutions by ignoring the exploits themselves and instead identifying the behaviour that results from the exploit.  This means that Network Monitoring systems are able to identify all malicious behaviour regardless of source or intent.  They also have the added benefit of being able to discover network weaknesses or points of greatest vulnerabilities before they are taken advantage of.
