Unveiling the Shocking Truth: The Looming Threat of Cyber Insecurity and the Blind Spots in Network Critical Visibility

In the realm of cybersecurity, where we strive to safeguard our businesses and data, a glaring oversight persists—a colossal elephant in the room: data.

Amidst our efforts to fortify our cyberverse, where do the vulnerabilities lie that pave the way for malicious actors? The answer lies in the obscure depths of our data packets. Without comprehensive real-time tracking of this data, our cyberverse, systems, and businesses are riddled with gaping vulnerabilities.

Picture a bustling nightclub brimming with security personnel to thwart troublemakers, only to realise that the malevolent intruders are already within the premises. Now, envision bouncers at the nightclub entrance equipped with X-ray vision, peering into not just the attire but the very intentions of those seeking entry. What if you could intercept these threats long before they breach the threshold? While conventional firewalls boast of such capabilities, they often fall short against Trojan horse tactics, akin to judging a book by its cover—ineffective and inadequate.

If technologies can scrutinise every packet, it leaves us singing the familiar tune of "there's a hole in my bucket." Any loss equates to a lack of genuine security, with some packet analysis systems reporting staggering packet loss rates of up to 30%.

Driven by the fear instilled by this vulnerability, Newgen Systems endeavoured to craft a superior solution—a foolproof mechanism to prevent packet loss and safeguard systems monitoring tools from incognito attacks. Collaborating with cPacket Networks and leveraging their cutting-edge packet capture, analysis, and storage technology, Newgen Systems offers unparalleled solutions that mitigate the rampant packet loss plaguing conventional packet capture solutions.

In the realm of cybersecurity, the implications of losing any core data are profound and alarming. An AI-powered cybersecurity solution, vital for both performance and security, operates at a severe disadvantage when not all of the essential data is available for Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to analyse and act upon. This scenario mirrors a state of artificial stupidity (AS), akin to navigating with blinkers on—a perilous situation where critical insights are obscured, leaving systems vulnerable to undetected threats and potential breaches.

Businesses Face $18.2B in Potential Losses Amid Staggering 96,000 Cyber Attacks: cPacket Technology Real-Time Visibility Safeguards Australian Businesses

The chilling reality facing Australian industry and government is a staggering 96,000 cyber-attacks reported by the Australian Signals Directorate in the 2022-2023 financial year. But the true cost of this crisis extends far beyond the headline figure, with the top 10% of targeted businesses each facing an average of $1 million in losses per attack - a devastating $9.6 billion blow to the nation's economic backbone.

In the face of this escalating threat, the need for comprehensive, real-time network visibility and protection has never been more critical. cPacket technology is a transformative solution empowering businesses and government agencies to fortify their mission-critical infrastructure, enhancing reliability, safety, and control - all while delivering a return on investment.

By arming decision-makers with the granular, real-time intelligence they need, cPacket is helping businesses and government entities not only to safeguard their operations, but also unlock new levels of efficiency and competitive advantage.

In an era of escalating cyber-attacks, forward-thinking leaders are turning to cPacket technology to protect their most valuable assets and empower their businesses to navigate the dangers of the modern threats with confidence and clarity. cPacket is a revolutionary technology redefining how businesses understand and manage their computer networks.

cPacket's real-time data capture and advanced analytics capabilities provide businesses with an unparalleled view into their network infrastructure. By analysing the data flowing through the network at line speed, cPacket empowers businesses to identify and resolve issues faster, detect security threats, and optimise performance – all while driving significant cost savings.

The true transformative power of cPacket's technology is amplified through its strategic alliance with Newgen Systems, a preeminent provider of network infrastructure solutions across Australia. By combining the expertise of these two industry specialists, businesses can gain unprecedented visibility and control over their mission-critical IT assets.

Newgen's deep understanding of network design and implementation, coupled with cPacket's cutting-edge monitoring and analytics capabilities, enables the delivery of a comprehensive, end-to-end solution that addresses the most pressing challenges faced by businesses. This collaborative approach empowers businesses to harness the full potential of their network infrastructure, driving enhanced reliability, security, and operational efficiency.

As the digital landscape grows increasingly complex, the partnership between cPacket Networks and Newgen Systems stands as a beacon of innovation, equipping businesses with the transformative tools and expertise required to navigate the evolving threats and capitalise on new opportunities in today's data-driven marketplace.

Newgen plays a vital role in Australia, helping organisations leverage the transformative power of cPacket technology. As a strategic partner, Newgen's team of experts work closely with customers to assess their unique network requirements and seamlessly integrate cPacket's solutions into their existing infrastructure.

"By combining Newgen's deep understanding of network design and implementation with cPacket's cutting-edge visibility and monitoring capabilities, we're able to deliver a comprehensive, end-to-end solution that addresses our customers' most pressing challenges," explains Newgen Systems CEO Robert Perin.

As companies increasingly rely on complex, interconnected networks to drive their operations, the need for comprehensive, real-time monitoring and management has become paramount. "This is where the partnership between Newgen Systems and cPacket Networks steps in to offer organisations a transformative suite of tools," explains Iain Kenney, cPacket's Senior Director and Head of Product Management.

cPacket started building chips that powered its customers products. However, the company soon realised it could create an even more powerful solution by developing its own products. This led to the launch of the cVu product family, which delivers full line-rate performance analytics.

Packet analysis is the critical starting point for cPacket, but the company's true vision is to capture and deliver a comprehensive set of network data to connected tools, which is the ultimate value for customers. While the cVu device provides standalone value, it is primarily designed to send a complete set of packets to various tools, including security solutions.

cPacket does not claim to be a complete security solution itself. The company offers security-related capabilities, but it is careful to strike a balance - enabling its partners while also highlighting cPacket's unique value proposition of providing granular, real-time network visibility and intelligence.

"We started building our products in 2007 and scaled them up to 100 gigabit packet processing," Kenney recalls. "We utilise ASICs and FPGAs to accelerate the packet handling – a crucial capability for delivering the comprehensive network visibility and performance management that our customers demand."

The benefits of this approach are clear. cPacket's architecture ensures that every packet is processed at line speed, giving customers a complete and accurate picture of their network data, and empowering them to make better-informed decisions.

"Big businesses love the completeness of the data we provide," Kenney says. "We can deliver millisecond analytics, detect microbursts, identify DDoS threats, and replay events with pinpoint accuracy. The granular, precise data we offer helps our customers truly understand their network like never before."

C-suite executives looking to gain the upper hand in today's data-driven marketplace would be wise to explore the benefits of cPacket technology. By harnessing the power of real-time network intelligence, they can unlock new levels of efficiency, agility, and competitive advantage.

The results speak for themselves. One cPacket Networks partner, for example, was shocked to discover that their existing network brokers were dropping a staggering 30% of the packets flowing through the system. "Thirty per cent of the data was going on the floor," Kenney exclaims. If you're making decisions based on only 70% of your data, you're inevitably going to get it wrong."

With cPacket Networks and Newgen Systems in their corner, customers can gain unprecedented visibility and control, optimising their network performance, enhancing security, and reducing operational costs. "For our customers, this technology is truly transformative," Kenney adds.
