4 Ways to Strengthen Data Security with Network Monitoring Outlined in new eBook by Ipswitch

New eBook that Reveals Tips on How to Strengthen Data Security with Tools Already in Place Now Available for Download

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Dec. 18, 2018Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy-to-use secure file transfer and network management software, has released the new eBook, “4 Ways to Strengthen Data Security with Network Monitoring,” outlining how your network monitoring solution can be put to work to strengthen security. Tools already in place can provide valuable security at a relatively low cost – good news for organizations with a limited budget.

“Network monitoring is one of the most versatile tools in the IT arsenal, but security is one area where it isn’t always used to its full potential,” said Kevin Conklin, Senior Vice President Marketing at Ipswitch. “It’s really unfortunate because you can easily put the data and insights generated by network monitoring to good use for security purposes. In this eBook, we provide specific, useful techniques for putting your network monitoring solution to work to increase security.”

According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 68 percent of all data breaches took months or longer to discover. As such, IT teams need to do all they can to continuously monitor for breaches. With a little tweaking and creative thinking, IT team members can put the information, alerts and reports that network monitoring tools are designed to give to beef up security posture. If network monitoring tools are already monitoring the health of your network, and security events such as attacks or malware adversely affect the health of your network, then network monitoring tools can monitor for security events as well.

This eBook provides various tips, including alerting for new devices and changes in configuration, detecting DDoS attacks and anomalous network behavior with Network Traffic Analysis, as well as monitoring for cryptominers by watching resource usage.
