Secure the Network through Application Visibility PDF

Governments and businesses must continuously assess the use of new applications and services that improve processes and operations. As such, they must weigh the business benefits from the adoption of newly sanctioned applications against potential risk to the business, its data and other resources. Applications themselves, such as remote access, can represent undue risk. In addition, if applications are not appropriately secured in the business network, today’s attackers can hide communications within the very communication mechanisms the applications use. Adoption of security that appropriately identifies, granularly controls and secures enterprise applications can be slow if those charged with such controls don’t understand the necessity, value or ease with which appropriate controls can be adopted. Download our use case "Secure the Network through Application Visibility" for the benefits of this approach, along with some common concerns over adoption, and read about the experiences of several customers across different industries who made this transition.
