A secure network is increasingly important to every organization – and behind every secure network are two powerhouses: the network and the cybersecurity teams. But the often dysfunctional relationship that exists between these teams costs everyone valuable time and resources. Slow response times. Finger pointing. Increases in data breaches. Nobody wins.

What they found: improved network visibility helps build a foundation of trust and collaboration between teams.

The infographic below highlights the interesting truths around this inner conflict and where to find common ground so that both teams can benefit from increased network visibility, control and detection. (Hint: it’s in your DNS data).
