Regarding cybersecurity, visibility is fundamental for protecting network assets and information. Security teams must be able to see what's on the network to defend it and meet increasingly stringent compliance standards. Regardless of whether or not you are hacked, it's critical to maintain compliance to be audit ready. Failing an audit can lead to revenue loss, damaged brand reputation, or even closure of the business. In the cloud, security teams are running into new challenges with visibility. Cloud-native services are seen as black boxes—not providing them with the visibility, governance, and audit control needed to meet enterprise requirements. Moreover, enterprises cannot send their business-critical data and traffic flows across clouds for inspection, audit, and visibility.
