But imagine a scenario where, rather than starting at a place of health, your systems are under constant attack. A periodic check-up isn’t good enough to monitor weakened defenses. It’s the same situation with networks. And it’s even more complex since networks now encompass virtual, cloud and mobile environments as well as on-premises systems. Traditional defensive technologies such as monthly scans, firewalls, antivirus packages and patching don't always prevent major attacks on network health. Organizations must adapt their defenses to the new technologies to keep networks safe and secure.
