The Need for NetSecOps
Traditionally Network Operations and Security Operations teams have operated in their own silos mainly due to different goals. Network teams focus on facilitating access to information and devices, while security teams focus on limiting access to information and devices. This results in disparate tools and leads to blind spots within the network which bad actors can exploit. Furthermore, if/when a threat is detected, it can take days/weeks/months to investigate and remediate the issue due to lack of communication and collaboration between the two teams. NETSCOUT’s NetOps and SecOps tools and technology improve this collaboration.
Netscout’s Omnis Security Platform is based on a foundation of visibility without borders to provide a single source of smart network derived data (Smart Data) for more efficient service assurance and cybersecurity.
