When we think of TAP (Test Access Point) technology, we often dismiss it as an old art. However, a new generation of network access technology has emerged that I believe will change your mind forever. Currently available from only a few vendors, these next-generation network access systems are so different from traditional TAP's that I prefer to call it “Smart Access Technology”.
In particular, today I like to showcase a new system that is available from Network Critical which is the Smart Network Access (SmartNA) System!
