As a personal lines insurer, there is much to protect. How many times have we all shuddered, hearing about personal information being breached, including identity, financial accounts, and even health records? Cyberattacks are top-of-mind for companies who must maintain a level of trust and integrity with their customers, clients, and partners. Having a security event in 2014 created an even stronger sense of urgency to strengthen overall security through improved network visibility. Awareness of this effort was reported to the CIO, the CISO and even the CEO. Executives undoubtedly do not want to appear in articles on the biggest security breaches, like the one from Network World1 entailing, for example, how data was stolen on 22 million current and former federal employees from the federal Office of Personnel Management.

Case Study: vTaps and Vision ONE Deliver Innovative Virtual Access
Most government agency data centers in the United States are policy driven with procedures in place for monitoring everything occurring within each center. Many are now highly virtualized, and while the information technology (IT) teams recognize that visibility gaps exist, many are not aware of a solution. The Ixia account team introduced this large federal agency to Ixia’s integrated virtualized visibility platform, which maximized monitoring effectiveness by ensuring proper access to the data the customer needed, when and where it need it.
