    Network Visibility Can Help Avoid the IT Blame Game-

    The cost of downtime

    Perhaps not surprisingly given the lack of visibility these organizations have, 70 percent of NetOps respondents indicated that they have experienced a critical network event that took at least one full business day to diagnose. More than half of U.S. respondents (52 percent) said it costs their organization more than a half million dollars in revenue per hour when they have a network outage or performance degradation.

    The cost of downtime

    Perhaps not surprisingly given the lack of visibility these organizations have, 70 percent of NetOps respondents indicated that they have experienced a critical network event that took at least one full business day to diagnose. More than half of U.S. respondents (52 percent) said it costs their organization more than a half million dollars in revenue per hour when they have a network outage or performance degradation.

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.
