Is Your Enterprise Secure?

Information security and risk professionals can’t keep pace with the ever-evolving tactics of fraudsters, state-sponsored agents, hacktivists, and other cybercriminals. Some say that there are two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those who don't know they have been hacked. At the same time, enterprises are also forced to innovate faster than ever before as digital transformation is impacting every sector across every industry on a global scale. 

To address these challenges, IT professionals who seek to empower their organizations to innovate with confidence are increasingly recognizing the need to combine service assurance, cybersecurity, and business analytics to establish the business assurance that makes IT a true partner in the success of the organization.

The Imperative of Pervasive Security


Trends like virtualization, SDN/NFV, and hybrid cloud environments all blur the boundaries between trusted and untrusted security zones and render the traditional approach to perimeter security obsolete. Furthermore, according to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, 99% of malware is only seen once before hackers modify the code so it can continue evading detection.

If perimeter security and traditional endpoint protection technologies aren’t enough to achieve the necessary security posture as part of your layered security strategy, what is the right alternative? NETSCOUT’s pervasive security model provides a holistic approach to security and relies on end-to-end visibility into the entire service delivery stack, offering comprehensive insight on both service performance management and security. Pervasive security is the best approach to augmenting your layered security strategy and assuring the performance, confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and services in your enterprise.

The Role of Smart Data in Cybersecurity

Smart data is well-structured, contextual, available in real time, and based on pervasive visibility across the entire enterprise. Since every action and transaction traverses the enterprise through traffic flows, a.k.a. wire data, it is the best source of information to glean actionable insight from. NETSCOUT specializes in empowering solutions with smart data. Our patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology generates smart data based on software-centric pervasive instrumentation of traffic flows that are collected and processed at the source – from physical and virtual (SDN/NFV) infrastructure on-premises, software-defined data centers (SDDC) and hybrid cloud environments - to produce service contextual metadata in real time.  This smart data is converted into actionable performance and security insight.

Arbor Networks ATLAS®

Arbor Networks ATLAS®, from Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT, is the world’s first and largest globally scoped threat analysis network. Launched in 2007 in partnership with a group of Arbor service provider customers, ATLAS delivers smart data to provide unparalleled visibility into the backbone networks that form the Internet’s core. This data is generated by the participation of more than 330 customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data, based on 140 Tbps or approximately one-third of all Internet traffic. Customers use this smart data to make timely and informed decisions about their network security, as well as service creation, market analysis, capacity planning, and application trends.
