Why You Need Networking Flow Monitoring

January 4, 2019 / GuidesFor Team

What is network flow and why does anyone need to monitor it? To the uninitiated, data interaction between the end user and the internet is not a direct connection. It may appear that if a person is on a website or a mobile app that they are interacting directly with the program wherever it is in the world that hosts the program files. The truth is more complicated than that. The data stream is actually bounced off several telcos, DNS servers, hosting servers, and other potential bounces before it reaches its desired destination. You can run a traceroute check on any website here. It will give you an idea of how many places your data goes to before reaching the website you want to see. Needless to say, a hacker can intercept the data in any of those bounces. It is also possible to find their source by tracing those data streams. This article talks about it in detail.
