Hawk Eyes: Why Network Monitoring is Crucial For Business

Network monitoring is an absolute business essential, especially since most of the business processes, communication and data are shared online. In the past few years, hackers targeted plenty of businesses (especially the small and medium sized ones).

Just because they do not have any network monitoring processes and technologies in place, they become the targets for network intrusions.

The Why and How of Network Monitoring: Knowing to Act

If there’s a working system, it needs monitoring. Networking systems for enterprises are rather complicated and such a set up almost always requires continuous vigilance and monitoring. Whether you choose to set up a server, tag along about five computers and monitor your small business network manually or choose to go enterprise and use a FCAPS (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security) – the usual ISO telecommunications Management Network Model – this monitoring is what alerts you to signs that something is wrong within your network.

Network Monitoring: How Does a Peek Into Your Network Activity Look Like?

Have you been worrying endlessly about what your employees do during their workday? How does your network perform? Do you keep a tab on the cost of infrastructure costs? How do you ensure business continuity?

Network Monitoring is a way for you to monitor your internet networking infrastructure to sniff out problems even before they arise; keep a check on questionable user activity; prevent files from overloading your networks; intervene and check before server crashes; rectify choppy network connections, etc.

Virtualization – is it right for your business?

Virtualization has come the forefront of every enterprise's favorite money-saving initiative. By reducing the numbers and types of servers that support their business applications, companies are looking to reduce costs.

Less power usage, both from the servers themselves and the facilities' cooling systems, and fuller use of existing, underutilized computing resources translate into a longer life for the data center and a greater bottom line.

Why is computer security important?

Computer security is the process of preventing and detecting unauthorized use of your computer. Prevention measures help you stop unauthorized users (hackers) from accessing any part of your computer system. Detection helps you to determine whether or not someone attempted to break into your system, if they were successful, and what they may have done.
