Enterprise Challenges with Network Visibility: Requirements, Considerations, and Use Cases

Enterprises have specific needs to secure and manage the nervous system of their IT system—which is their network. Network visibility helps ensure application performance because most applications are highly dependent on the network. Compliance, auditing, and security requirements demand visibility into how IT resources interoperate, and network visibility is required to gain insights into how well they are functioning. If IT organizations do not have complete network visibility, resulting blind spots may lead to missing critical security threats and availability or performance anomalies.

This ESG White Paper describes how network visibility provides insight into the biggest challenges facing IT, as reported in ESG’s annual research.
