Monitoring tools

The study found that nearly half (45 percent) of IT staff monitor network and application performance manually, despite the availability of proven network monitoring tools. The study also found that it wasn't an issue of budget constraints, as more than half of IT departments spend more than $1 million on such tools.

The main impetus for deploying such tools in the U.S. was to monitor network performance, while in Europe, the main reason was to monitor network availability. Only a very small percentage of respondents (under 10 percent) in either the U.S. or Europe listed breach prevention or detection as a reason for using networking monitoring tools.

The proliferation of data on enterprise networks continues to increase with the rising demand for such technologies as virtualization, software-defined networking, and high-performance computing, as well as a growing dependency on mobility across the workforce. Couple this with a sophisticated cyber attack landscape, and it’s all IT can do to keep up with network activity.

Emulex, which plays a central role in connecting, monitoring and managing enterprise networks, conducted a survey to determine how much visibility network operations (NetOps) and security operations (SecOps) professionals actually have into critical events that happen within their networks, as well as such things as the tools they are using, how accurate their attribution and reporting of root causes is, whether they have experienced data breaches, and how much time and money network and security events cost their organizations.
