Abstract

See full text

A system and method for monitoring and dynamically managing all user traffic at point of log-in and throughout a user's network experience. Rules may be enforced based on observed traffic of users at and after log-in and up until log off. The system automatically detects network traffic and dynamically responds to potential attacks with extremely high speed and efficiency. Rich Traffic Analysis (RTA) offers greater network traffic characterization accuracy, detection speed, network management options and intrusion prevention capabilities. The system has ability to view all network traffic in the full context of users, applications, data and system access which offers strong, verifiable and accurate protection of networked assets. The system employs several traffic sensor devices communicating with a central manager device enabling the high-speed characterization of each network packets traversing the network. This provides a more solid basis for legitimately taking action and enforcing rules on the observed traffic.
