Interview: Ward Cobleigh, VIAVI Solutions
Ward Cobleigh, Sr Product Manager for VIAVI Solutions, understands the balancing act between network ops and security that IT pros are facing today along with the challenges they have in solving issues due to limited visibility and complexity. His experience in engineering, product management plus design and marketing give him a unique ability to cut to the heart of the problem and demonstrate solutions that give engineers a sigh of relief. He brings a refreshing bit of humor to the dry, technical topic of network performance management and security threat hunting.
Bringing NetOps into the Threat Hunt
In a very recent study, 65% of responding organizations reported a shortage of cybersecurity staff, with a lack of skilled or experienced security personnel their number one workplace concern (36%). To help fill this void, there is a very real and still growing need to cross-train existing professionals and teams whenever possible. How achievable is this goal? Can we really take the typical NetOps skillset, combine it with the data sources that are typically available to them, and apply this to the SecOps skills gap? This Business Security Week Podcast will answer these questions and include a demonstration of how a performance analysis platform can be used to quickly and efficiently identify threats.
