Organisations from various field are adopting multiple technologies in order to keep up with their business demand. These adoptions had lead to the change on the role of the network operations (NetOps) and Security operations (SecOps) teams in the organisation. NetOps and SecOps which was once upon a time a team has now becoming separated as the IT landscape becoming more complicated through the adoptions of multiple new technologies. The rise of cloud architecture and expand networks lead to the increase in the complexity of the IT infrastructure of an organisation, it is fundamental for a practice or approach that can break siloes between NetOps and SecOps to empower the two teams to be more specialised in their respective fields as well as bringing them back into one team. Significantly, due to these changes, the NetSecOps has become increasingly important. Why there is need for NetSecOps?
NetSecOps refers to the approach that integrates workflow of NetOps and SecOps team with the aim to give strong collaboration between the two. Through this objective, the need for NetSecOps is increasing as it is essential in enhancing effective collaborations in organisation as it
1. Seamless Collaboration through effective resources sharing
Today, network infrastructure sophistication had made the roles of NetOps and SecOps teams to overlap. Both NetOps and SecOps depends on the same data resources to properly get their job done. Through NetSecOps, effective network and application performance monitoring (NAPM) tools and real-time access to packet-level insights from the network can be provided to the two teams for a better and seamless collaboration.
2. Enhance network performance
A unified NetOps and SecOps teams focuses more problem prevention instead of spending time on reactive troubleshooting. With this, NetSecOps promotes better network performance thus improve user experience.
3. Improved Security and risk reduction
A unified NetOps and SecOps are able to work together to react upon a risk or security issue. With the two teams are able to communicate and collaborate better, NetOps team will be able to notify the SecOps team regarding certain issues which arise at their field of work. As a results, a unified NetSecOps can always be prepared to security issues, giving them ability to immediately identify and mitigate the risk.
