As companies adopt the new IT landscape, they are able to realize efficiencies of a dynamic and agile organization. However they also introduce visibility and security gaps that leave the organization open to vulnerabilities, exploits, and breaches.
The New IT Landscape
The concept of a network has changed significantly over the past decade. Mobile users, virtual machines, and cloud-based applications are now major pillars of the IT infrastructure. As companies adopt the new IT landscape, they are able to realize efficiencies of a dynamic and agile organization. However they also introduce visibility and security gaps that leave the organization open to vulnerabilities, exploits, and breaches.
Enterprises must ensure that the new IT paradigms do not compromise the security posture of the organization. Adopting a truly continuous monitoring solution is the only way to improve organizational effectiveness and reduce costs without compromising enterprise security. Continuous network monitoring is the process an organization uses to automate the measurement of risk with their entire network. The process continuously discovers, assesses, and then reports every component of the network against a security policy.
Organizations that have implemented continuous monitoring are more than twice as likely to be satisfied with their vulnerability management approach compared to those who use periodic scanning, according to a 2014 study by Forrester Research commissioned by Tenable.
