Monitoring Network Traffic
An unmonitored network could cost a company everything from poor performance to loss of revenue. And any type of security breach will do damage to a company’s reputation. As IT operations managers face increasing security risks and users expectations, the need to monitor the network has never been more critical.
Large enterprises deploy extensive visibility infrastructures with TAPs, traffic monitoring switches and analysis tools so they can proactively manage their network traffic. What is the right architecture for midsize organizations and branch offices?
Midsize IT teams experiencing network growth as well as handling BYOD, mobility and cloud computing should consider monitoring network packets to manage applications, network performance and security. With small teams and limited resources, it may seem impossible but if network visibility and inefficiencies are unaddressed, network vulnerabilities will increase.
