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.
Watch this SANS webinar to learn:
•The common security pain points as networks expand and grow with increasing speeds
•How today’s users are forcing organizations to consider/include security in their network architecture
•How a lack of security can impact network availability and performance
•How to bridge the NetOps and SecOps divide
Gigamon will discuss how pervasive network visibility improves security tool utilization and can shorten detection and response times. We hope this webcast will inspire you to reassess the current state of your network and security infrastructure to enable collaboration between the two teams and improve your security posture.
