VIAVI Solutions | February 28, 2023
On February 27, 2023, VIAVI Solutions Inc., a leading network monitoring, test and assurance solutions provider, announced the launch of NITRO Discovery, a solution designed for providing real-time discovery of virtual or physical network assets, on the ServiceNow Store.
This high-scale, low-latency solution integration is a Certified Service Graph Connector into the ServiceNOW Telecommunications Network Inventory (TNI) Platform. The solution is based on VIAVI's acquisition of CanGo Networks in June 2022, which helps network operators maintain and develop accurate network inventory and topology.
NITRO Discovery offers a way for network operators to manage and optimize network operations effectively, especially with the increasing challenge of maintaining visibility to all connected equipment as network elements become disaggregated. Accurate inventory and topology are essential in network intelligence as they serve as foundational elements so that AI/ML algorithms can work reliably and deliver dependable automated solutions.
NITRO Discovery integrates an auto-discovery and reconciliation framework with ServiceNow CMDB Telco CI Classes to update network inventory in near real-time. It is based on a multi-domain, multi-vendor and multi-technology inventory management system, which includes information on logical, physical and network resources. The solution provides real-time data collection and reporting at scale.
NITRO Discovery will be showcased at ServiceNow Stand #GG4 during MWC Barcelona from February 27 to March 2.

Gigamon | March 13, 2023
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.
