TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is one of the most commonly used protocols for transmitting data over the Internet. TCP monitoring is the process of analyzing and tracking TCP traffic to gain insights into the network’s health and security. In this article, we will explore how it works and why it is important to maintain a healthy and secure network.

What is TCP?

TCP is a protocol that enables two devices to establish a reliable connection and exchange data in a structured and organized way. It ensures that the data sent between devices is received accurately and any lost data is retransmitted. TCP is one of the core protocols of the Internet Protocol (IP) suite, which governs how data is transmitted over the Internet.
