How to Shift Security Practices From Monitoring to Observability

Is 'observability' just a disingenuous rebrand of "monitoring"? Is it monitoring on steroids? Or, is it the new way to find out "why" (and not just "if") your system, IT or application isn't working as expected?

Today we see that traditional monitoring approaches can fall short if a system or an application doesn't adequately externalize its state. To reach "observability," IT needs to correlate many different sources from logs, metrics, traces etc. - and this becomes even more critical (and complex) on distributed systems using containers and Microservices.

Watch this video to learn more about:

  • How "observability" differs from "Monitoring";
  • Why it is an even bigger challenge in a multi-cloud and containerized world;
  • How platforms can help gain observability, while shaping the future of IT with machine learning and predictive IT.
