You may be considering the move to a SaaS model for several reasons: it's cheaper, easier, more flexible. But then reality sets in. You can't afford to move to SaaS right away. Many of your apps are too mission-critical to trust SaaS at this point, and security restrictions and company guidelines will not allow you to use SaaS for many apps. However, for some apps, it's not an issue, and that number continues to grow. So how do you reconcile? Enter stage left-- Hybrid APM. With the ability to pick and choose between SaaS or on-premises monitoring for your different applications and components, wherever they reside, your troubles are alleviated and the shift towards SaaS can be seamless.

Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile
