As IT moves into the Cloud for delivery as a service, organizations lose visibility of their network infrastructure. be.Analyzer Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) gives users back control and informs their strategic decisions.
As Internet penetration continues, and users shift towards online platforms, organizations are making heavy demands on cloud services due to their cost-effective nature, scalability, high performance, facility for automatic system updates, and easy integration with existing infrastructure.
Increasing cloud traffic has resulted in growing concerns about network security across businesses, which is driving the need for managing distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and maintaining the quality of experience (QoE).
These factors present network administrators with a dynamic environment, owing to the rising volume of system applications, increasing numbers of mobile end devices that are often employee-owned (BYOD), and amount of transferred data in corporate and WAN networks. Data rates can reach ten gigabits, with distributed infrastructure, virtualizations, and cloud services. These trends have created a huge demand for stability and improved network administration.
The global network traffic analysis solutions market is growing through meeting this demand with tools for high transparency communication at both system and device levels and requirement, and control over applications. Such solutions aid in maintaining high network security, reduce the time needed to resolve network issues, and monitor user behavior and network capacity consumption, while pre-empting problems relating to networks and applications.
A well-performing network is critically important to digital business; however, its visibility and users’ understanding of it often don't meet operational requirements.
IT is no longer contained within a controlled internal environment. Infrastructure is moving steadily out of the office, being consumed instead as a service. Yet the equipment that inevitably remains on site comprises many devices from different manufacturers that cannot easily be monitored.
That’s why network traffic analysis (NTA) solutions are increasingly popular: they provide a much broader view of their network’s activity without calling for assumptions. They deliver the essential information needed to impose control and make strategic decisions that allow users to optimize their existing infrastructure with confidence.
NTA is easy to implement, and lets users
Collection: Distributed high-speed collectors digest the telemetric and flow data coming from the network devices at real-time speed.
Normalization: No matter the origin of the network event, the normalization process unifies all sources into standard system dimensions to allow interoperability
Enrichment: Using third party and internal intelligence feeds, the platform enriches every event to provide real insights derived from the raw data
Analysis: Through machine learning techniques, the platform learns the network behaviors and discovers anomalies
Visualization: A powerful query system will interrogate any aspect of the network performance, usage, KPIs or relevant security information at the granularity level required.
ACT: With the correct network information, network operations teams can reliably manage the network.
All companies increasingly depend on third-party service solutions. This means they are unable to check or monitor for themselves whether their contracted services meet their SLA or are performing well. They may suspect they are not fully benefiting from their network, or are paying for under-utilized infrastructure – but cannot be sure.
be.Analyzer is the perfect answer: It is a next-generation NTA (Network Traffic Analysis) platform that gives users the increasingly critical ability to view their network’s status and control it accordingly. This view is in-depth, detailed, unbiased, and user-controlled, while being compatible with any network vendor.

How tax authorities are improving their collection services with cloud technology
Cloud technology is offering tax authorities an opportunity to improve the tax experience for themselves and their users. By digitizing tax, tax authorities, accountants, and taxpayers can exchange tax information via cloud-based applications rather than paper records or spreadsheets.
Applying this digital transformation will reduce IT downtime for internal and external services, maintain daily IT service standards, and deliver IT projects on-time and to quality standards.
Network traffic analysis products like be.Analyzer can provide effective solutions to tax offices seeking to meet these commitments.
Tax authority organizations are large and complex – yet be.Analyzer can help. It allows configurations for all organizations of any complexity. Users and devices (physical and virtual) can be nested in an organizational/regional hierarchy that best reflects their reality. Information can be freely filtered and analyzed into multilevel hierarchies. Dashboards and reports can be configured to show a specific view of the hierarchy or by arbitrary labels.
be.Analyzer’s performance analysis also provides comprehensive information for users to detect bottlenecks. Results can be filtered by branch, department, or user to better understand traffic behavior and increase knowledge about application usage.
be.Analyzer allows a multivendor environment, with collection and analysis of streams from devices like Teldat and many other leading vendors.
Its business-oriented interface means that all users, not just technical specialists, can easily obtain the information they need.
Pharmaceutical industry globalization increases dependence on data infrastructure
The pharmaceutical industry is globalizing; two significant drivers are global clinical trials to gain a broader and more diverse participant base, and expansion into less-saturated developing markets. However, this creates the challenge of connecting a global network of employees, researchers, clinicians, customers, suppliers, distributors, and manufacturing sites to foster collaboration. Globalization necessarily means a heavier reliance on Internet data transmission, creating new risks from poor web performance, and inadequate end-user experience, and often, the resulting regulatory slow-downs.
Mitigating these risks requires monitoring of new implementations, checking migrations, and obtaining full visibility into the network status. NTA allows users to achieve these goals.
