Best Practices for 10G and 40G Network Forensics
The network analysis tools that organizations have invested in over the past decade or so are simply not able to keep up with today’s high-speed networks. New tools and IT practices are necessary if IT organizations are going to keep new networks running as well and as securely as old ones.

By investing in network forensics solutions and following the best practices listed in this paper, IT organizations can ensure that speed does not come at the expense of visibility, control, or security.
