According to the Center for Strategic & International Studies, cybercrime costs $375-$575 billion annually and last year caused a net loss of up to 200,000 jobs in the U.S. alone. Data breaches not only damage company performance and integrity, but also impair commerce, competitiveness, innovation and a nation’s overall business growth.
With network forensics–the comprehensive, high-speed capture and analysis of network traffic–IT organizations and in-house security teams gain access to in-depth analysis of network traffic. Security teams can use network forensics to more quickly investigate and stop security attacks by acting on hard evidence about who, what, where, and when.
In February 2014, WildPackets surveyed more than 250 network engineers and IT professionals to better understand the availability and use of network forensics solutions in the enterprise. The survey, Trends in Network Forensics, revealed how many organizations have a network forensics solution in place as well as how organizations are using their network forensics solutions and its benefits.
A year has passed, and thanks to a series of highly publicized data breaches, including the Target and Anthem breaches, security is more than ever on IT organizations’ minds.
This month, WildPackets is kicking off the second annual network forensics survey to better understand how enterprises are using network forensics for security investigations and other IT operations. You can help shape the direction of network forensics in 2015 by participating in our survey. As a thank you, you will automatically have a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
This short survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete. All data is completely anonymous. In order to get accurate results, we need a large sample of respondents across the community. The survey will be running through the month of February so don’t wait!
