Next Network Visibility Can Help Avoid the IT Blame Game-5 Next

Growing mobility demands

As more employees work remotely, communicate with company servers remotely, and bring mobile devices into the enterprise, IT organizations are working to provide a platform and processes to enable business operations from a mobile perspective. Eighty-four percent of respondents said their organization has implemented a bring your own device (BYOD) initiative. However, this added traffic, from various sources with differing quality and connectivity, requires even better monitoring capabilities.

Still, 26 percent of European respondents said they have no plans to monitor the network for performance issues related to BYOD. When combined with the fact that 45 percent of organizations are manually monitoring the performance of their networks, the growing amount of mobile device-generated traffic is on pace to overwhelm enterprise networks and potentially lead to more network and security events.

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.
