Network and Security Operations

Network and security operations traditionally have been handled by two different operations teams, although much of the same operations data is used, but differently on whether the operations team us troubleshooting a connectivity problem, or a security breach. Log data, traffic data, and API based data from the various different network devices are used by both Network and Security operations. vRealize Network Insight offers use cases for both teams, all from the same data collection sources. As an example Network Insight can determine if a virtual connection is trusted, blocked (secure or unsecured), misconfigure, or broken (network infrastructure) all within the same workflow.
