Description
Packet capturing and analysis to safeguard your network.

As your network experiences increases in traffic, the service-associated risks also increase. Packet analysis aims to capture, read, and interpret "packets" within your environments. Not just that, it also helps to verify live communications and implement real-time monitoring within your network.

This course supplies a wide range of tools to analyze your network issues—from losing connectivity to low-speed problems—and shows you ways to upgrade your network performance. You will also investigate modern exploits and malware issues at the packet level. You will learn to apply graph traffic patterns to visualize data flowing across your network. You will work with a powerful tool, Wireshark, and use its features to find hidden bottlenecks in your network. Finally, you'll compile statistics to analyze the performance of your network packets.

By the end of this course, you will have enhanced your network analysis skills and will be able to perform critical analysis and interpretation of data that crosses your network.
