What is the “Total Cost of Ownership” for security teams to get absolute forensics with full packet capture?

In this episode of the Endace Packet Forensic files, I talk with Tim Dales, VP of Labs and Analyst for IT Brand Pulse. Tim shares the results of an IT Brand Pulse study that examines the cost of in-house developed packet capture solutions versus off-the-shelf, vendor-built solutions.

Tim shares details of the report’s findings including the pros and cons and some of the key things many people don’t consider before trying to build solutions in-house.

Finally, Tim discusses key changes in how organizations are thinking about their security architectures and the gaps they are looking to address. He shares the importance of integrated workflows in helping analysts to accelerate investigation times and confirm or dispense potential indicators of compromise more definitively.
