Cloud computing has become an essential aspect of modern businesses with 94% of enterprises using the cloud in some capacity. However, despite this growth, 79% of organizations report widening visibility gaps in their cloud infrastructure and a lack of visibility across cloud operations. Modern cloud tools don’t deliver an end-to-end picture, and piecemeal apps stand in place of centralized tools.
Most cloud monitoring tools focus on one specific service, making it harder to track internal users, remote users, VPN users, cloud applications, and more. Native cloud tools are usually focused on developers and cloud engineers, with very little useful information for network engineers to understand connection or performance problems or use the tools effectively. Limited visibility in cloud monitoring leads to limited functionality, greater security risks, lack of support for remote workers, and limited cost or consumption visibility.
To address these issues, advanced monitoring solutions provide end-to-end visibility across the entire connected network, on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud. They can reduce security risks, lower mean time to resolution, increase business value, and stop overspending. LiveAction is an example of such a solution that extends visibility into the cloud, provides NetOps with a familiar interface, captures flow and packet data for cloud operations, and provides everything needed to keep tabs on cloud operations.
