With good visibility, security teams
can provide the foundation needed
to innovate without introducing the
organisation to undue risk.
For organisations undergoing Digital
Transformation (and which aren’t these
days?), visibility ensures the many new
and varied assets that come with this
initiative are properly protected within
the network infrastructure.
For those undergoing cloud migrations
or already working in hybrid
environments, visibility is a vital tool to
ensure that policies are consistently
enforced by traditional or cloud
mechanisms. Visibility also ensures
that vulnerabilities and risks are known
throughout the migration process and in
the hybrid network.
Organisations looking to improve their
cyber-resilience leverage on-demand
visibility to proactively address risks,
rapidly respond to attacks and recover
quickly, minimising business disruption.
Companies embarking on mergers,
acquisitions and divestments use

it’s important to remember that security

that provide visibility of what you’re
trying to protect and how well you’re
protecting it; and use visibility to power
intelligent processes, unify teams and
strategically secure the business today
and into the future.
With these capabilities, they can earn
their seat in the C-suite and be involved
from the start of innovation initiatives as
a trusted advisor key to the success of
the business. u
