  1. Saving every heartbeat: How DPI helps secure IoT networks for healthcare

    IoT healthcare devices lacking relevant data protocols and standards become easy targets for cyber-attacks. This risk is indefinitely higher with legacy healthcare equipment that cannot be or is not updated to present security standards. This article takes a look at the importance of securing IoT networks and systems against cyber-threats. It lays out the vulnerabilities of present-day IoT networks and systems and highlights how real-time traffic intelligence can mitigate them.

  2. Uncovering hidden devices: using DPI to deliver NAT transparency for enterprise networks

    Network address translation (NAT) allows devices in a private network to keep their own private IP addresses yet conceal this information from the public internet for secure and safe networking bringing about security challenges to enterprise networks. With insights on the devices and applications used in a NAT setup, IT administrators can implement better BYOD policies, formalizing unauthorized usages and aligning existing network security measures.

  3. Video streaming: networks and the game of bandwidth

    It is evident that video streaming is on a fast track to becoming the new definition of the ‘Internet’, easily outdoing other bandwidth-intensive applications such as cloud gaming, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). The demand for video content seems to move in tandem with network speeds, given that better speeds translate into faster streaming and improved quality of experience (QoE). One of the immediate effects of a rapid increase in video traffic is the strain it puts on network resources, resulting in network congestion and poor network performance. While this impairs almost all applications to some degree, video takes the biggest hit given its dependency on real-time availability of bandwidth and speeds. What operators need now are the right tools that deliver the required intelligence, timely and accurately, to maintain the required QoE and to successfully deploy their video streaming strategies.

  4. Seeing the unseen: enhancing application observability through DPI

    Observability has become an important component in application performance monitoring, as application telemetry continues to grow broader, deeper and more granular. It ranges from broad data on network conditions such as latency and speeds, to granular insights on each server. It sheds light on each individual transaction that collectively make up the performance of the application. Why is observability important for APM and what is the role of DPI in it?
