Is Your Network Toxic to Your Business By @MJannery | @CloudExpo [#SDN #Cloud]

There’s a lot more happening on your network than you think, and it could be costing you real money

There’s a lot more happening on your network than you think, and it could be costing you real money.  Like high blood pressure or cholesterol, operating your network beyond threshold, at capacity or with other unaddressed issues could be the silent killer for your enterprise. Advanced network management tools keep you fully covered 24×7 and give you the proactive capabilities to prevent catastrophe and keep your business in good health.

Working with customers of varying sizes in a variety of industries over the past decade, Entuity has amassed significant experience in identifying and diagnosing network risk factors. Even companies who had implemented what they thought were proactive policies were surprised and blindsided by what Entuity found lurking just below the surface of their networks. The basis for most issues is that the companies simply did not know enough about their network’s health and were blissfully unaware of the impending doom.

In our latest whitepaper, Network Management: Covering Your Assets while Maximizing Operational Efficiency, we look at some common misconceptions and bring to light many of the risk factors experienced by these companies, quantify those risks with representative examples, and give you advice for keeping your network from becoming toxic to your business.
