ESG Brief: The Importance of a Common Distributed Data Services Layer

Abstract:

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational efficiency.
