CIO Resolution #2: Use an Integrated Monitoring and Security Platform

This is the second in our several part series, “CIO Resolutions for 2015.”

Problem: Managing separate solutions for security and monitoring gives you an incomplete view of your network health

Does this sound familiar? You have a SIEM solution to alert you of malware or APTs and a separate solution to monitor the availability of servers, apps, and network equipment.

You receive multiple, overlapping streams of data which each give you an incomplete view of network performance. For example – is that malware alert from the firewall related to the bandwidth spike on your Linux cluster?

You’ll never know.

Solution: Get a single view into both security and availability

AccelOps layers security on top of performance and availability monitoring to give you a single view into your entire network. By cross-correlating the malware activity and bandwidth spike, you know there may be a more serious problem than either notification alone would indicate. You won’t have that visibility with a variety of point tools monitoring security and availability activity separately.

 

Tomorrow we’ll discuss CIO Resolution #3: Scale Quickly, Easily and Cheaply with Multi-Tenancy.
