NAT transparency plug-in for enterprise IT security

Detecting network address translation (NAT) and the devices behind a NATing device in enterprise networks


Connecting BYOD devices to an enterprise network requires network address translation (NAT), a process that translates public IP addresses into private ones and vice versa. While NAT has its benefits, it is not without risks. Devices hidden behind NAT can lead to various network security issues. These can be broadly divided into two kinds: negligence and sabotage. Malicious entities outside the physical protection perimeter could access the internal network and launch an attack.
With the easy-to-integrate mobile tethering transparency plug-in in combination with the leading OEM DPI software R&S®PACE 2, IT administrators can prevent cyberattacks by proactively detecting unauthorized NATing devices within their network.
