Why does your network need complete and absolute visibility?
Focusing first on visibility
Many IT organizations think more about the capabilities of their security appliances and monitoring tools that they do about how to provide those tools with a complete view of the data that moves across their enterprise. The fact is – you can’t monitor what you can’t see.
Looking at the Problem: too many blind spots, not enough visibility
The result is blind spot that limit visibility into enterprise data flows. Achieving total visibility means having the ability to see into these containers so you know which of your resources are in use, who is using them, where bottlenecks might exist, whether your infrastructure is secure, and much more.
The goal of a total visibility architecture is to give you access to all the data that crosses your networks, so you can make informed decision about how to best protect your business and its data, and ultimately deliver and excellent customer experience.
Understanding why you need network visibility
All networks are inevitably exposed to increasingly complex, and advanced security risk and threats. The key is to identify the risk and threats as quickly as possible and take effective action.
Visibility enables you to see data wherever it resides in your network and resolves issues, such as:
- Troubleshooting network performance: in many cases, application performance is tied to network performance. When applications run slowly or stop working, you need real-time network diagnosis to pinpoint the root cause. A proper visibility solution allows you to immediately isolate the application, user, geo-location, and device experiencing problems — so you can identify and resolve the issue promptly.
- Protecting and securing the network: cyberattacks, including new malware instances and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, continue to grow in number and sophistication. Every time a new attack occurs or a new vulnerability is discovered a new firewall rule, intrusion prevention system (IPS), anti-malware signature update, or other network security countermeasure is reactively implemented to counter the new threat. Protection requires constant updates and changes to remain relevant. If you aren’t proactively and continuously monitoring network traffic using a total visibility security fabric, you’re living your organization vulnerable to cybersecurity threats.
- Monitoring application performance and reliability: you need applications to performs not just today, but for the long term. Network-centric applications must be continuously and precisely monitored for reliability and performance.
- Optimizing performance of complex network infrastructure: today’s networks have grown more complex with multiple data centers, data encryption, sophisticated security and analytic tools, and worldwide mobile users demanding instant access to applications and data. The monitoring tools you use will help you achieve excellent performance, but only if you are seeing all data in a timely manner.
