Indeed, this Knowledge Leader believes in embracing change. Netscout applies what is calls a “holistic approach” to keep pace with innovation. To do so, it manages networks by creating visibility into every level of the network from start to finish and then homing in on the interdependencies between them. They refer to this approach as “Visibility Without Borders” and credit the philosophy for Netscout’s ability to maintain control in today’s everchanging world.
