SPAN Port Monitoring

LANGuardian gives you unmatched insight into network activity at high speed by monitoring SPAN ports. LANGuardian is an out-of-band, rather than proxy based, system so it does not create an additional point of failure.

LANGuardian passively captures Internet traffic via a SPAN port or TAP. You get fine-grained insight into what’s happening on your network with no proxies and no special hardware appliances. You get clear visibility of all user activity, file and database queries, intrusion attempts, bandwidth usage and Internet access. You get all this with no clients or agents to install and zero impact on network performance.
