Continuous Network Monitoring is rapidly becoming a business critical component for healthy, reliable networks. As margins evaporate and bottom-lines become tighter it becomes even more necessary in today’s small and medium sized businesses that IT systems just work. You rely on data and applications to manage your business, manage accounts, and to manage production and deliverables. Even small problems with application performance can cost you in lost profits and other related costs and something as common as a virus infestation, or hardware failure can be devastating for an entire quarter.
Beyond the obvious applications that are used to run your business, these IT systems are also responsible for a significant portion of our internal and external communications. Voicemail, e-Mail, IVR’s and automated response systems are not just essential but, as our workforces become even more mobile, absolute must-haves in the modern business world.
So how do you ensure that your business critical systems, applications, and data are protected, available and performing optimally?
The answer is really more of a process than just a simple buy this one thing solution. Keeping systems updated, regular anti-virus scans, following best practices for security and data protection are all part of the answer but there is much more to it than that. The right approach should be customized to your business and your needs. No matter which options are applied it all starts with Continuous Network Monitoring.
Knowledge is Power, or so the old saying goes. Which is to that knowing is powerful and it is powerful indeed. You make hundreds of decisions every week that affect your business and you need god information to make those decisions. That really is the power of a continuous network monitoring system.
- You can’t plan for future needs if you don’t know about your current usage.
- You can’t prevent problems if you don’t know what’s happening in your environment.
- You can’t predict problems without knowing how well or poorly things are working.
- And you can’t perform quickly and correctly without the right information.
What it all boils down to is this:
You can’t make good decisions about how, when, and where to spend your IT dollars without good information and that is why you cannot afford to not have a continuous network monitoring system.
