New webinar will highlight how mid-sized IT teams can best optimize packet monitoring

Boulder, CO., October 15, 2014 - Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research webinar entitled “Five Priorities for Mid-tier Packet Monitoring,” featuring EMA VP of Research, Network Management, Jim Frey and APCON President and CEO, Richard Rauch.

Direct collection and analysis of network packets is an important and highly effective monitoring technique for understanding and reducing operational and security risk. Large enterprises have long utilized these techniques to protect and optimize operations and will commonly invest in packet monitoring architectures to support use of a constantly changing mix of analysis tools.  

Many mid-sized organizations have the same risk reduction needs, but operate under quite different cost and resource constraints.  What should mid-sized IT teams know about how best to optimize packet monitoring?  Which capabilities are most important from a feature and architecture perspective?

During this webinar, Frey and Rauch will reveal:

  • Packet monitoring strategies and architectural choices
  • Techniques to stretch investment dollars via consolidation and advanced capabilities
  • How to optimize monitoring via centralized management
  • What to expect in return in both short and long term
