It's Halloween, so I thought I'd conjure up some spooky facts about network reliability and security. Prominent industry studies continually cite scary humans as the overwhelming contributing factor of network outages and security breaches.
The #1 reason for network downtime is human error, often resulting from the growing complexity of the modern enterprise network, and human vulnerabilities and errors continue to be the top contributors to companies' security threats.
That is why Passive Optical LAN’s operational efficiencies, through centralized intelligence and management, directly improve network availability and network defensibility. The ability to limit human touch by orchestrating software-based global policies that control the farthest reaches of the connected services, applications, people and devices is paramount. Implementing consistent global policies and procedures is of the utmost importance for a simple, reliable and secure network operations.
