Network Visibility: The who, what, when and where of network traffic
The Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated modernization and cloud adoption to support the massive shift of the federal workforce to telework. The rapid adoption of cloud-based services and solutions and an explosion of new endpoints accessing agency networks during the pandemic generated an even greater need for visibility into the who, what, when and where of network traffic.
Riverbed commissioned research firm Market Connections to develop and conduct a custom blind online survey of 200 federal government IT decision makers and influencers from across the United States in August and September 2020. The study was designed to assess the state and impact of network visibility on performance, productivity and security in increasingly complex federal network environments.
