Traffic Analysis

Actively Monitoring Network Traffic

In cybersecurity, the attacker has the advantage

Hackers are growing more sophisticated and are frequently finding ways to penetrate or circumvent firewalls

Traffic Analysis is a part of the defense-in-depth security strategy, ProStratus is not content to assume that firewall protections are enough to thwart attackers. We recognize that hackers are growing more sophisticated and are frequently finding ways to penetrate or circumvent firewalls to find their way past the network defenses of outer boundaries. 

Network Traffic Analysis

At ProStratus, we believe a proactive approach to cybersecurity is the only approach, this is why traffic analysis is a critical component of our defense-in-depth strategy. Our team of highly trained and experienced experts use a customized suite of network monitoring and analysis tools to create a baseline of normal network activity and establish acceptable levels of traffic.

This allows us to detect any suspicious activity that deviates from the normal behavior and quickly respond to potential security threats. Our traffic analysis solutions includes real-time monitoring, alerting, and reporting capabilities, providing your organization with the peace of mind that your network is being continuously monitored for potential security breaches. Our goal is to protect your organization, data, clients, devices and employees from unwanted intrusion, reducing the risk of any data loss, and keep your businesses operations running smoothly.

What is traffic analysis?

ProStratus will monitor the amount and type of traffic on your network. This includes activity like emails, file transfers and downloads. Both internal and external traffic is logged and monitored so that we can review it while establishing a baseline of normal behavior.

Once that is established, we can set parameters in consultation with you, to determine what would be alarming behavior. Do you not have anyone in the office on the weekends? We can establish alerts that would tell us if someone was moving a lot of files off of the network during downtime.

Why is it important?

Unusual traffic, whether it be traffic through ports that are normally not used or increases in traffic at times when users are not logged in, are key indicators of an attacker’s presence on your network.

Threat actors do not just steal data. They also hack in to networks to install software so that bandwidth and other network resources can be used to mine cryptocurrency. This is extremely costly for organizations and can often go unnoticed if network traffic is ignored.

How does analyzing traffic make my network more secure?

By alerting ProStratus of unusual traffic, we can investigate it and figure out the source of the traffic. It is very possible that the unusual traffic is a user doing something that are authorized to do in a different way. But we would rather verify that information than assume that all traffic is legitimate.
