Sponsored by SearchNetworking.com

Enterprise networks are increasingly complex, with a variety of wired and wireless connections linking locations that can include multiple clouds, branch offices and headquarters. The enterprise network must provide access to an ever-wider variety of applications via both personal and company-owned devices. On top of this, end users expect solid, consistent performance. To do this, IT needs a clear picture of how the network links are performing, and it’s preferable to do this through one system, so network pros can quickly isolate and resolve issues. This handbook looks at holistic approaches to monitoring today’s enterprise networks and the available tools vendors now offer that promise unified network management.
