More mobile devices are now connecting to more data from more sources. IT challenges are complicated by increasingly high customer expectations for always-on access and immediate application response. This complexity creates network "blind spots" where latent errors germinate and pre-attack activity lurks. Stressed-out monitoring systems make it hard, if not impossible, to keep up with traffic and filter data "noise" at rates that they were not designed to handle. Network blind spots have become a costly and risk-filled challenge for network operators.
The answer to these challenges is a highly scalable visibility architecture that enables the elimination of current blind spots, while providing resilience and control without added complexity.
