Just about every task you do is more difficult if you don’t know exactly what’s happening across your live network. End-to-end visualization has become a “must-have” for today’s network teams. But you’ll never get that kind of insight with static maps.
Managing the network manually is no longer humanly possible. Only automation can handle today’s increasingly critical workflows like troubleshooting, security, and change management.
“Having NetBrain work as a discovery tool is a huge asset for our team, so that engineers with little knowledge of the existing network can still diagram and troubleshoot.”
– Team Lead of IT & Design Engineering for AT&T
Have you come to accept inaccurate documentation as unavoidable? Trying to keep static diagrams up-to-date manually is just shoveling sand against the tide. Automation lets your network document itself.
You probably spend 80% of your troubleshooting time collecting data, only 20% diagnosing the issue. Cut troubleshooting time in half by running hundreds of diagnostics automatically. Have all the relevant data already collected and visualized on a map of the problem area, waiting for you.
All too often it's a mad scramble when there's an attack on your network. Which part is under attack? What's the impact? And how did it happen? Automation provides immediate insight to improve your reactive threat mitigation and proactive network hardening cybersecurity.
Making changes to the network is risky. In fact, about 50% of outages are due to some network change. We can do better and make safer changes. Automation minimizes human error and puts an end to "plug and pray."
When your APM triggers an alert, isn't your network usually the first suspect? Automated diagnostics on a shared troubleshooting console help avoid the blame game by quickly pinpointing root causes – or clearing the network.
Managing your network is a joint effort among network, security, and application teams. Yet true collaboration has remained elusive. Your teams have a ton of expertise, hard-won through years of experience. Now you can "digitize" everyone's expert knowledge and lessons learned as automatically executed workflows.
