Unified IT Asset Management & Security
for a Managed Service Provider
In most small and medium-sized businesses, IT managers either waste their precious time assembling a complete, detailed view of their network security or they don’t do it at all. For those that do, so much time is spent bringing the data together in one place that little time is left to analyze and react to anything but the most obvious alerts. Why spend countless hours pulling from a myriad of distinct sources of data, manually correlating disparate data types and formats, and trying to connect the dots?
A fragmented approach leaves companies vulnerable to surprises, or worse, cyber attacks. What’s needed is a unified view of network and security combined, to maximize visibility into everything happening on the network and strengthen defenses against threats.
