Network Probe: Introduction

  • Network probe is an advanced protocol analyzer that helps to capture data traffic and analyze the signal over a communication channel. The network probe helps to find out the sources of any network slowdown in a few seconds, and it also helps to monitor network traffic in a real-time scenario.
  • Network probes allow security teams and IT departments to capture performance analysis and network traffic of the captured data to identify network traffic problems or potential malicious activity.
  • In a network probe, traffic data can be detected in real-time by an operator for troubleshooting purposes, observed by a notifying tool to detect dynamic network threats, or retained to execute forensic analysis in case a network breach is discovered.
  • The network probe uses SNMP and other types of internet protocols such as command-line, HTTP, and TCP to recover data by polling a device. Once the data is received, the probe feeds data into a display within network monitoring software solutions.

Network Probe Market: Key Drivers

  • The network probe gives an overview of the most active protocols, listeners, talkers, hosts, and conversations on a network, and it also notifies if something out of the ordinary occurs and proactively fixes the problem before it turns serious.
  • The network probe helps in the filtering and searching process for any conversation, protocol, or host. One needs to just type in the search field, and a network probe helps to suggest entries found on the network.
