The Need for Network Visibility Mike Heumann of Emulex on New Survey of IT Pros
The old, standard dashboards are no longer sufficient. To be truly effective, network pros now need new data to help find and resolve network security issues, says Mike Heumann of Emulex.

This is one of the key findings of a new survey of IT pros conducted by Emulex, Heumann says.

"There's a lot more complexity in enterprise networks today," Heumann says. "If you think about it, you've got virtualized networks, virtualized servers; you've got software-defined networks and all kinds of applications - all of them mission-critical."

The price of failure is in the millions, Heumann says, and so network security pros are eager for new diagnostic tools to help them detect and respond to anomalies.

In an interview recorded at Infosecurity Europe, Heumann discusses:

  • The complexity of today's enterprise networks;
  • The type of data that helps mitigate damage;
  • Why the cost of network downtime continues to soar.

Heumann joined Emulex in May 2013 and serves as the senior director of marketing for the Endace portfolio of network monitoring and visibility solutions at Emulex. Prior to Emulex, Mike served as the senior vice president (SVP) of sales and marketing at NextIO and Astute Networks, vice president of marketing at Dot Hill Systems, director of product management and marketing at JNI/AMCC, and project leader at Sony.
