Various network technology enhancements, such as data center consolidation, virtualization, and cloud computing, force IT departments to get a better handle on network access and monitoring to provide an adequate level of network management and security.
How do you get holistic network monitoring infrastructure that enables migration to a higher network speed and increases the effectiveness of your existing security and monitoring tools?
Whether you know it or not, your network is probably exposed. However, the issue of network security cannot be solved with a one-time purchase. There isn’t a perfect security product that can stop all intruders in their tracks.

Furthermore, enterprises can't afford to make the investments for buying these tools indefinitely because the cost of analyzing network traffic per bit is not falling nearly as fast as the cost of bandwidth.
Finding the best security solution involves trying out different best practices that are based on a robust Network Visibility architecture. Only this type of visibility can reveal potential blind spots and the associated risks they incur.
