Pervasive Security Enabled by Next-Generation Monitoring Fabric

Challenges of Securing Next Generation Networks

Increasing reliance on the network for critical business functions, such as BYOD, mobile access, and SaaS, has opened new avenues for cyber-attacks. This presents significant challenges for network and security teams who need to maintain a high performance, resilient network, while ensuring that it is secure. Visibility into who is accessing the network and the ability to identify anomalous traffic is essential to detecting cyber-attacks and addressing security problems.

The growth in the frequency of malicious attacks has shifted the security landscape. The assumption must be to design IT security to defend systems when you are attacked (not if you will be attacked). The impact of successful attacks and the related adverse commercial impact have never been greater. The emphasis of security is now geared toward detection, containment, and fast remediation. Increasing reliance on the network for critical business functions, such as BYOD, mobile access, and SaaS, has opened new avenues for cyber-attacks.
