2 Sides of Network Visibility
NP-View introduces an innovative network visibility solution that marries technical depth with a user-friendly approach.
By merging network accessibility modeling and traditional traffic monitoring, it empowers teams to proactively assess network accessibility, promptly spotting compliance and security concerns.
This solution provides a comprehensive view of how network devices permit or deny communication and calculates all potential pathways among network assets.
“Automation of network assessments is pivotal for adhering to cyber resiliency best practices, enabling security and audit teams to transition from traditional point-in-time spot-checking to real-time verification.”
— Robin Berthier, CEO & Founder at Network Perception
Devices Supported in NP-View

Network Visibility FAQ
Network visibility is a fundamental aspect of network management and security. It empowers organizations to proactively address issues, enhance performance, and protect their data and systems. Without adequate network visibility, it’s challenging to maintain a secure and efficient network environment.
Here are some steps to help you enhance network visibility:
Network Segmentation: Segment your network into logical subnets or VLANs. This not only improves security but also makes it easier to monitor and manage specific parts of your network.
Regularly Review and Analyze Data: It’s not enough to collect data; you need to review and analyze it regularly. Look for trends, anomalies, and security threats. Establish baseline performance metrics to make deviations more apparent.
Automation and Alerts: Set up automated alerts for specific events or thresholds to proactively address issues before they become critical.
Network Documentation: Maintain accurate network documentation, including network diagrams, device inventories, and configurations. This documentation will help you understand the network’s intended state.
Compliance and Security Best Practices: Align your network visibility efforts with industry standards and best practices, especially if your organization has regulatory compliance requirements.Network visibility is a fundamental aspect of network management and security. It empowers organizations to proactively address issues, enhance performance, and protect their data and systems. Without adequate network visibility, it’s challenging to maintain a secure and efficient network environment.
Full network visibility, also known as comprehensive network visibility, refers to the ability to monitor and analyze all network traffic and activities occurring within an organization’s network infrastructure. It involves gaining complete and detailed insights into every aspect of the network, from the data packets flowing through it to the behavior of network devices, users, and applications.
