Gigamon, the industry leader in deep observability, recently announced the results of a new study from an international data corporation (IDC). It surveyed over 900 IT leaders worldwide and provided invaluable insights for CISOs, CIOs, and their IT organizations to improve performance, security, and productivity with observability throughout all their digital infrastructures. The IDC white paper confirmed that leveraging network-derived knowledge and insights is essential for detecting today's complex security threats across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.
With 95% of businesses reporting a ransomware attack in 2022, IT security remains a significant priority for executives across all sectors. However, most respondents (over 60%) to the IDC White Paper agree that present observability solutions only address specific needs and don't give a complete picture of how things run. To reduce vulnerabilities in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, it is crucial to supplement the conventional observability capabilities based on metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) with real-time network-derived intelligence and insights.
Security (34%), staff productivity (33%), and digital/user experience (22%) are the top advantages of observability (25%).
Nearly 75% of businesses use or intend to employ deep observability technologies to boost automation initiatives in the coming years.
About half of the respondents (51%) of the market will witness significant investments in cloud services
Adherence to the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls, supported by network-derived intelligence, can eliminate 98% of attack vectors.
Mark Leary, Research Director with IDC, remarked, “Networking, cybersecurity, and observability are becoming intertwined. IT organizations are looking to leverage an immutable source of truth and more collaborative management efforts to break down siloed technology approaches, position themselves for long-term success, and, ultimately, deliver the best possible business outcomes.”

Gigamon has over 4,000 customers in over 100 countries, including nine of the ten largest mobile network providers, 80% of the Fortune 100, and hundreds of government and educational institutions. It offers an entire observability pipeline that uses actionable intelligence at the network level. This potent combination aids in enabling IT firms to guarantee security and compliance control, speed up the investigation of performance bottlenecks, and reduce operational overhead related to managing hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructure. Due to this, contemporary businesses can take advantage of everything the cloud offers in terms of innovation.

TeamViewer today launched the next generation of its iconic remote access and support solution, used by hundreds of millions of people across the globe. With the newly named TeamViewer Remote, the tech stack, usability and overall look and feel have been extensively reworked and modernized, while retaining TeamViewer's popular and proven remote connectivity functionalities.
One of the main improvements is a new, more intuitive and modern interface. Customers deserve the most up to date UI and streamlined interactions, whether for professional or personal use. As a result, TeamViewer Remote has redesigned the entire user experience. A new web client bridges the gap between desktop and browser interactions and connections have been simplified so a session can be created in one click, as easy as joining any online meeting. In addition, transparency has been increased to support users in making the right decision to accept only legitimate connections.
For business customers, remote monitoring and management (RMM) has been added natively to give more functionality. RMM in TeamViewer Remote includes device monitoring, asset management, software deployment and patch management making the management of devices across a company seamless and efficient.
Dr. Hendrik Witt, Chief Product Officer at TeamViewer: "TeamViewer's best-known product became the global de facto standard for remote access and support, and we are committed to strengthening our lead in this space with the best quality solutions on the market. To continue to serve our subscribers, mostly SMBs from all industries, and hundreds of millions of non-commercial users we have reimagined the product with the user journey in mind. Time poor individuals want to be able to support customers, colleagues and friends and family with one click, they want a modern interface that guides them through a connection, and most importantly they want to ensure connections are secure. TeamViewer Remote delivers all this via a browser in addition to a downloadable desktop app."
The underlying software architecture underwent a major renewal and key components have been redesigned in line with TeamViewer's platform approach, with the goal of offering a single access to the entire TeamViewer product portfolio in the future. Functionalities and add-ons that required a separate login, such as the Remote Management package, are now integrated and accessible through the same interface as TeamViewer Remote. TeamViewer will continue to enhance the new solution with more features in the future.
TeamViewer Remote is available for download as of today for all new customers. All existing users of the remote access and support solution can choose to upgrade their existing installation to TeamViewer Remote for free, or log into the web client with their existing TeamViewer credentials.
TeamViewer is a leading global technology company that provides a connectivity platform to remotely access, control, manage, monitor, and repair devices of any kind – from laptops and mobile phones to industrial machines and robots. Although TeamViewer is free of charge for private use, it has more than 625,000 subscribers and enables companies of all sizes and from all industries to digitize their business-critical processes through seamless connectivity. Against the backdrop of global megatrends like device proliferation, automation and new work, TeamViewer proactively shapes digital transformation and continuously innovates in the fields of Augmented Reality, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. Since the company's foundation in 2005, TeamViewer's software has been installed on more than 2.5 billion devices around the world.

OpenVPN is proud to introduce Device Identity Verification & Enforcement (DIVE) to their cloud-based solution, CloudConnexa™ (previously known as OpenVPN Cloud). This powerful new feature will take your ZTNA structure to the next level.
With the rapid growth of remote and hybrid workforces, providing secure access from a mix of BYOD and corporate-owned devices has become a critical component of ZTNA. DIVE on CloudConnexa gives Administrators the power to leverage one of the key principles of ZTNA — least privilege — granting access only to the resources a user should have, exclusively from the devices they are authorized to use.
"The growth of remote workforces and the rise in mobile devices accessing company networks makes providing the appropriate access based on user and device identity a critical component of ZTNA," says Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN. "The DIVE feature on Cloud Connexa makes it easy for admins to verify device identities before granting network access."
DIVE boosts the ZTNA essentials Cloud Connexa already provides — hiding your applications from public view, using digital certificates for users and devices — by giving Admins the option to manually add authorized device identities (UUID) as well as lock digital certificates, automatically, to specific devices. A user trying to access the network with an alternate device, even with an authorized connection profile, will be blocked. By limiting authenticated user access to trusted devices with unique device identities, DIVE minimizes your attack surface and reduces the risk of unauthorized network access when you use Cloud Connexa.
"Even if an authorized always-on IoT device's connection profile is compromised,” explains Dinha, “a bad actor will be unable to connect using the stolen profile. This additional layer of security is invaluable to IoT network security.”
With DIVE on Cloud Connexa, admins can finally build ZTNA using defined access control policies for users and devices. This means organizations now have more power than ever to strengthen their security posture, reduce their attack surface, and make sure their network is truly secure.
About OpenVPN, Inc.
Unlike older approaches that require a mixed bag of networking and security products, CloudConnexa from OpenVPN consists of a simplified, cloud-delivered service for a fraction of the cost. And if you prefer a self-hosted solution, Access Server gives you complete control over the solution’s deployment, configuration, and management.
