Problem: The threat of blind spots

With today’s complex IT environments, network administrators need more than a single view into their networks. End-to-end visibility from any point on the network eliminates blind spots. Without advanced network visibility seen through a single pane of glass, organizations put network security, compliance mandates, and application performance at risk.
