SilentRunner® enables you to answer the difficult question of “What happened?” in the aftermath of a security incident by tackling the complicated tasks of capturing, analyzing and visualizing network data. It is a passive network monitoring solution that visualizes network activity by creating a dynamic picture of communication flows, swiftly uncovering break-in attempts, weaknesses, abnormal usage, policy violations and misuse, and anomalies — before, during and after an incident. Operating like a surveillance camera, SilentRunner can play back events from thousands of communications to validate system threats and investigate security breaches. This dramatically boosts incident response capabilities by enhancing your ability to identify offenders, determine root cause, and mitigate the recurrence of the same security incident. In addition, it helps monitor infractions to regulatory controls and policy violations, providing supporting reports for auditing requirements and contributing to your ability to demonstrate compliance.
