Want Better Network Visibility with Less Complexity? Here’s How!
companies need complete visibility into their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to detect and contain data breaches and mitigate risk.
To accomplish this, successful organizations resist the legacy mentality that relies on more people and more tools at every location. Instead, they are turning to a new architectural approach that disaggregates the speed of the network from the speed of the tools inspecting traffic on that network. This innovative approach allows enterprises to absorb change in network speed and technology without compromising security.
ESG believes the foundational step in this approach is to ensure comprehensive infrastructure visibility across data centers and distributed edge and cloud environments. To do this, organizations must have a common distributed data services layer that can collect, process and distribute the right information to the right tools at the right time.
Learn how a consolidated network architecture that includes security delivers better visibility, reduces complexity and increases tool efficiency.
It’s time to face a hard truth: modern enterprise networks can be extremely – sometimes painfully – complex to manage and defend. Increased network speeds to 100Gb, unfettered access to cloud applications and end-to-end encryption are just some of the requirements of today’s employees. When you add in mobile and IoT devices, the complexity grows exponentially, especially when it comes to the security of the networks to which they connect.
And when we couple expanding networks with security needs, many organizations struggle to protect their users. This leads to conflicts between NetOps and SecOps goals. The networking team is concerned about availability and performance to ensure the business is being conducted whereas the security team needs to ensure the data and the users are safe from bad actors.
We need a new approach that provides pervasive visibility to data flowing across the physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to ensure that the right traffic is sent to the right security tools. This approach should also enable SecOps and NetOps to collaborate and improve the security posture of an organization.
