Application and Network Visibility—Formulating a Response to Threat
Visibility into who is using which web-based application can avert those dismaying network traffic spikes that slow mission-critical applications and compromise security tools. Without visibility, by the time IT can take action, the crisis has taken on a life of its own and the business is losing revenue. The following design tactics can thwart attacks, and help rid the network of crime.
1. Look beyond status quo solutions.
Given the scale and scope of consumer-oriented applications, IT should address threats with a comprehensive network visibility and application security architecture. This should offer all the performance needed to handle an intensive, expanding and unpredictable environment.
2. Think visibility into all applications.
Because all applications are at risk, any defense should be network-wide. A holistic visibility architecture should provide ample intelligence and insight about the most active users and applications in all areas of the enterprise.
3. Don’t skimp on scalability.
You need to delve deep into application behaviors and weaknesses in order to frustrate wily application-borne threats. Be sure that your architecture is scalable enough to meet the most intensive requirements over time—enabling collection of byte, packet, session, and time statistics; identifying hundreds of applications and offering detailed analysis of application data to administrators. The time to start implementing this architecture is now.
