INETCO Insight houses its own real-time data pipeline, along with centralized data storage and intelligence sharing options designed to scale with your business. Designed to independently collect TCP/IP data packets that are streamed straight off the network, INETCO Insight provides an easier, less costly way to deploy multi-point monitoring and transaction data capture across high volume, complex payment environments. There are three options to get at raw transaction data:
- SPAN/TAP port mirroring for passive network-based instrumentation
- Lightweight server or endpoint agents
- Lightweight application agents
In all cases, real-time data capture is performed “out-of-band”, without impact on the “in-path” applications. For Cloud environments where access to the network and application components is challenging, you can either SPAN transaction data from a lightweight event collector on a server or virtual machine, or use cloud port mirroring. You can also acquire data from log files and electronic journals. Upon collection, raw transaction data is time stamped, filtered and prepared to ensure that sensitive information is always protected, and irrelevant data is removed to reduce the volume of data forwarded for analysis.
