Having granular visibility into network traffic patterns and behaviors is important. Understanding new applications and their traffic impact is equally critical. This is why we update our traffic signature recognition database weekly. The environment we operate in requires this velocity and time to value. Some IT people may find the speed with which change occurs a little harrowing—because it is—but that is the new normal. The vendors that have come to grips with this can be great resources, and corporate IT departments that accept this new reality will have better results trying to manage it. It may be daunting at times but it is not something that we control, so we run with it and so far, so good.
