Monitoring of network is a complex process. The process involves monitoring of network components consisting of network devices and the traffic that flows through such devices. Monitoring of network traffic is essential for enterprises, as it has a direct impact on decisions regarding optimal use of network resources and tailored allocation of available bandwidth. The ability to monitor network traffic in real time provides the ability to take critical decisions that address the economic and security concerns of an enterprise. This is more so when the network is spread across different geographical locations with distributed applications. McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis Appliance (NTBA Appliance) effectively addresses these concerns and provides several options for network monitoring that can be tailored by an enterprise to suit its requirements.
