Server Communication Mapping is crystal clear visibility of the communication of your servers.
With Server Communication Mapping you get an interactive graph database that can be used to produce the documentation needed for your team to be successful at various tasks:
- Network restructuring
- Security lockdown
These are typical endeavors where you need to understand every detail of the communication of your systems.
What Does It Look Like?
With Server Communication Mapping you can extract and format data exactly as needed by your project. Let’s say you want to secure a critical service with micro segmentation.
Access your network graph database using a simple browser, select the server and retrieve all connections with a single click:
Your network team is now able to easily identify required firewall rules. A task that usually involves an application specialist as well as extensive log analysis can be completed in a few minutes by looking at the easily understandable documentation generated from Server Communication Mapping.
To make it easier for you to navigate your data we use intelligent color coding. This makes it very easy to see what subnets your servers belong to and what communication types (protocols) are used.
As the documentation is interactive you can drill down to any level you desire and dynamically include more servers in the view as you progress.
How Do We Do It?
In order to visualize your network connections a data source is needed. Multiple formats are supported, e.g. Windows Server firewall logs or Splunk data exports.
Data can be imported ad hoc according to your needs (if you’re looking to migrate a single server) or we can help you set up continuous imports from a data source like Splunk to ensure you always have an up-to-date picture of your network communication.
Configuration of subnets and server names in the database is done in a few easy automated steps.
Based on your needs you can have your database on-premise, or securely hosted.
What Does It Cost?
The price of Server Communication Mapping is depending on the number of servers to include and whether you want a hosted database or an on-premise installation. Our hosted solution is available starting at € 150 per month plus VAT.
