A comprehensive collection of articles, videos and more, hand-picked by our editors
As in any other area of network management, the implementation and integration of best-of-breed system components
will guarantee effective control and response. The Internet VPN must be completely integrated into the overall network management fabric. For example, you will want your VPN to be integrated with DNS records, system time and administrator access privileges. Full integration of all functional areas of the monitoring process, such as data collection, data analysis, alerting and archiving, means data points are available and accessible in various systems and in diverse formats. This flexibility facilitates the rapid processing of incident information at any given time.
Particular tools for monitoring purposes should be discussed with your Internet VPN system vendor and implemented according to their standards and directions.
