How To Improve Network Security and Performance
As you may have seen, I like to talk a lot about network visibility – what it is and what the benefits are. Therefore, I often get the question, “So, how can I specifically use network visibility to solve my problems?” – sort of a Jerry Maguire “show me the money” type of question. The short answer is that there are lots of use cases available, it simply depends upon what your individual needs are. Let me show you.
Hopefully you have heard of the term “network visibility” by now. It has become commonplace over the last year or so. If not, network visibility is simply the ability to see what your network is doing and how it is performing. You can get a longer narrative of the definition here and free resources on network visibility are available here. While some might think that network visibility is a non-issue these days. It’s actually not. Many networks have had, and continue to have, network problems such as: downtime, slow running applications, missing data, expensive troubleshooting activities, and security breaches.
