Network management for the visibility layer is a critical mechanism for Information security and IT professionals to enable them to locate, isolate, and implement network visibility solutions for performance and network security related issues. In today's fast-paced, digital-first ecosystem, complete visibility is vital in maintaining control of your network and eliminating (or at least minimizing) blind spots and system downtime.
Lacking a dedicated visibility layer, you will only be able to react to data security issues (after the fact) instead of addressing them before they become a serious network problem. Network management for the visibility layer is an essential network visibility tool for empowering your IT’s network awareness in real-time, and facilitating any relevant responses should the need arise.
The pro-active management mechanism should address the following two primary concerns:
1. Enable a comprehensive 360° network visibility (on your visibility layer)
2. Enable simple and intuitive configuration of the network nodes for optimal traffic management
