    External security threats like DDoS make all of the headlines, but man-made internal errors are a significant cause of network hiccups and outages. New code deployments or routine maintenance don't always go well and can have externally visible effects, even with best practices in place and thorough planning and testing in play. Hardware failures or transit provider outages are also significant internal issues that can lead to major disruptions.

    But if you hvae performance tools in place, your customers don't need to notice. Performance tools can monitor the health of your assets and make dynamic changes in real time to ensure that customers are directed to website instances that are up and ready to take their traffic if outages occur. Deploying multiple instances, ideally distributed geographically and spread among multiple vendors, is easier than ever before.

A massive migration to the cloud has been underway for the better part of the past decade, but the number of enterprises with hybrid configurations may be reaching a tipping point. IDC research suggests that by the end of 2016, more than 65 percent of IT enterprises will have adopted a hybrid cloud configuration and spending on infrastructure for cloud environments will reach $38.2 billion. And it's clear from Dyn's proprietary research that every company in the Fortune 100 has a cloud asset. Hybrid cloud environments reduce costs, increase flexibility and scalability and greatly improve network performance. But IT executives need the right tools to monitor and control their cloud infrastructure to maximize these positive impacts and mitigate security threats.

In this slideshow, Gary Sloper, vice president of global solutions engineering at Dyn, has identified eight reasons for the enterprise to improve visibility and control into their global internet and cloud assets.
