‘What Device Is That?’ Visibility to See the Unseen

When I look at my home network, it isn’t easy to determine which device is which. So when I’m looking at the number of devices connected to the corporate network, I’m amazed.

The game of hide-and-seek to find a new device (or even an application) and determine its legitimacy can be painful.

This is why visibility is so important. Without it, consider the following challenges you face among IT priorities:

  • Security

The threats you don’t know about can be the scariest. Whether it’s a rogue device or malware brought in on through a new app, it doesn’t belong.

You need to know when a threat exists in order to ensure it’s removed.

  • Asset management

You don’t want to fail an audit, nor do you want to buy unnecessary licenses. You need visibility to know what software is running, when and where it’s being used—as well as the associated allocations—in order to maintain compliance.

  • Endpoint management

Users replace BYO devices all the time, but are you sure that new device you’re seeing belongs to one of your users? You need to know so you can take appropriate action.

  • Service management

Without visibility, it’s hard to deliver optimal experiences. Service management teams need to see and understand the impact changes have on services and processes in order to ensure quality.
