Despite the insatiable demand for bandwidth, organizations still need to inspect and enforce network security policies at wire speed. And that is particularly challenging when you are upgrading networks from 10GB to 40GB or from 40GB to 100GB.
Join Mike Rothman, President of Securosis, and Sam Kumarsamy, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Gigamon, as they discuss how to solve the security headaches that go with these network upgrades and architectures that strengthen your security posture, simplify IT and reduce costs. You’ll learn how to:

Enable IT Collaboration with a Common Distributed Data Services Layer.
The IT environment is rapidly changing, becoming more distributed and complex as organisations transform themselves to provide better digital experiences. Because these improved experiences will be more dependent on the network, it’s imperative for organizations to properly plan and prepare now to eliminate security blind spots. The bottom line is that companies need complete visibility into their physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to detect and contain data breaches and mitigate risk.
To accomplish this, successful organizations resist the legacy mentality that relies on more people and more tools at every location. Instead, they are turning to a new architectural approach that disaggregates the speed of the network from the speed of the tools inspecting traffic on that network. This innovative approach allows enterprises to absorb change in network speed and technology without compromising security.
ESG believes the foundational step in this approach is to ensure comprehensive infrastructure visibility across data centers and distributed edge and cloud environments. To do this, organizations must have a common distributed data services layer that can collect, process and distribute the right information to the right tools at the right time.
Join us to learn how a consolidated network architecture that includes security delivers better visibility, reduces complexity and increases tool efficiency.
It’s time to face a hard truth: modern enterprise networks can be extremely – sometimes painfully – complex to manage and defend. Increased network speeds to 100Gb, unfettered access to cloud applications and end-to-end encryption are just some of the requirements of today’s employees. When you add in mobile and IoT devices, the complexity grows exponentially, especially when it comes to the security of the networks to which they connect.
And when we couple expanding networks with security needs, many organizations struggle to protect their users. This leads to conflicts between NetOps and SecOps goals. The networking team is concerned about availability and performance to ensure the business is being conducted whereas the security team needs to ensure the data and the users are safe from bad actors.
We need a new approach that provides pervasive visibility to data flowing across the physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to ensure that the right traffic is sent to the right security tools. This approach should also enable SecOps and NetOps to collaborate and improve the security posture of an organisation.

We will discuss how pervasive network visibility improves security tool utilization and can shorten detection and response times. We hope this webcast will inspire you to reassess the current state of your network and security infrastructure to enable collaboration between the two teams and improve your security posture.
