The Importance of Cloud Monitoring: Reduce Risks and Improve Performance

cloud monitoring

As companies migrate to the cloud, the lack of visibility across cloud operations increases security risks, lowers mean time to resolution (MTTR), and leads to overspending on network technology  infrastructure.  In fact, despite 94% of enterprises using the cloud in some capacity, 79% of organizations report widening visibility gaps in their cloud infrastructure.

The cloud is here to stay, with 48% of businesses storing their most sensitive data on the cloud and 50% of business workloads running in the cloud.  However, clouds provide limited visibility for enterprises.  Modern cloud tools don’t deliver an end-to-end picture, making it difficult to track internal users, remote users, VPN users, cloud applicants, and more.

The lack of visibility leads to limited functionality, including delays in troubleshooting application and network performance, application slowdowns and outages, and the inability to defend against security attacks.  Poor cloud monitoring and visibility result in serious blind spots for companies.

However, implementing visibility with cloud monitoring tools is critical to reducing security risks, lowering MTTR, and increasing business value.  Advanced monitoring solutions provide end-to-end visibility across your entire connected network, reducing security risks by eliminating visibility gaps, lowering MTTR, and increasing business value. In fact, 99% of decision-makers see a direct link between cloud visibility and business value.  As such, 80% of organizations are looking to increase their investment in cloud monitoring and cloud visibility.  With cloud monitoring, you can reduce risks and improve performance in the cloud.
