Networks are MISSION-CRITICAL to business success

68% of organizations say the role of the network has become more strategic over the last 12 months. 41% of companies use IT operations data for business purposes.

There are many potential causes of performance problems 

  • 20-35% of network outages are caused by human error.
  • 45% of organizations report that service levels have degraded as the rate of application releases accelerate.
  • 65% of organizations fell victim to malwarerelated breaches.


End users often know first
40% of all network problems are experienced and reported by end users
before network operations is aware.

Too many tools complicate efforts
