Don't forget to include your network into your GDPR strategy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU), whilst addressing the export of personal data outside the EU. This directive is very much about processes - some of which inherently need to be supported by technologies. There is no single tool or platform, and incorporating dozens of technologies isn’t the right way to go. Both financially and technically-wise.

What makes Flowmon an important part of your GDPR strategy?

As soon as GDPR goes into effect organizations will have just 72 hours to report detected breaches. If not, they can be fined up to €20 million or 4% of total revenue (whichever is higher). Providing evidence for compromised records in such a short time will force companies to have the visibility needed. And flow monitoring is an effective way to gain visibility.

Flowmon represents a smart and cost-efficient option that helps to fight data breaches with an unprecedented combination of powerful features and ease of use. Read further to learn how to avoid unnecessary penalties, ensure your data security and protect your business critical processes.

Unlike traditional flow-based monitoring tools, Flowmon goes beyond L3/L4 traffic monitoring and provides extensive L7 auditing features such as access to websites, file sharing via SMB protocol, DHCP and DNS troubleshooting and others. On the top of monitoring flow data is proactively used to protect your network. Network behavior analysis reveals deviations from standard behavior, detects infected stations spreading malware and detects intrusions and attacks not visible by standard signature based tools.
