Tracking for normal is how we do everything today. And, everyone’s normal is different. The quirks and idiosyncrasies that everyone has are what makes them who they are. In our lives, we track for normal with our health, our automobiles, even bank accounts and credit card charges. Since we are all individuals, everyone’s normal is going to be different.
What’s normal anyway?
Normal is simply a baseline measurement of how something ought to behave. It’s difficult to know there’s something wrong if you don’t have a baseline to track from. Physical security systems are no different. Each has been uniquely designed for the environment they safeguard, and every system has its own traffic patterns.
“Knowing Your Normal” is absolutely critical to recognizing abnormal traffic patterns. These anomalies help Security professionals pinpoint potential security issues or a real-time attack. Quick action and response to changes in an environment can lead to early detection and may even save lives.
So, how can Security professionals benchmark normal in their own environments? By deploying Vunetrix Network Monitor, of course.
Vunetrix is a software tool that helps Security professionals safeguard their environments by monitoring, in real-time, traffic patterns coming from mission critical security devices. When a device behaves abnormally, Vunetrix alerts. What’s more, Vunetrix integrates with diverse manufacturers showing key traffic patterns on a single-view dashboard.
Here are some “Key Alerts” Security Professionals like Vunetrix to monitor!
- Hard Drive Failure

What’s the moral of this story? Early detection is everything!
Know Your Normal. Report Changes. Save Lives. – It’s as simple as that!
