For most IT organizations, network monitoring is an essential tool. Network monitoring tools play an important role in letting IT pros get complete visibility into the status of network devices, systems, and applications, keeping the IT team aware of problems with services, networks, application performance, and more.
But despite Network Monitoring’s reputation as an IT Swiss-Army Knife, Security is one area where these tools are rarely used to their full potential.
That’s too bad because you can easily put the data and insights generated by network monitoring to good use for security purposes.
With a little tweaking and creative thinking, you can put the information, alerts, and reports that network monitoring tools are designed to give to work beefing up your security posture.
And in a world where 68% of all data breaches took months or longer to discover, according to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), who wouldn’t want all the help they can get monitoring for breaches?
And because most organizations already use these tools, they can provide added security value without the cost of a new tool. That’s good news for organizations with a limited budget for security tools.
