It's important to carefully strike a balance with risk management to achieve maximum risk mitigation at minimal cost

Paessler AG, a world leader in network monitoring tools, today announced the company has made available a new whitepaper, titled, "The Role of Network Visibility in IT Operational Risk Management." Available free as a download, the whitepaper offers IT organizations a three-step approach to help IT organizations identify, rate and plan an operational risk mitigation strategy. In the process, it outlines the business case for network monitoring as a key component to that strategy.

"It's important to carefully strike a balance with risk management to achieve maximum risk mitigation at minimal cost," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Paessler AG.

"Paessler's software enables IT organizations to efficiently utilize resources in the planning and execution of a risk mitigation strategy by offering more detailed visibility into critical parts of their networks."

Paessler's whitepaper demystifies the risk management planning exercise by outlining three informal steps which include listing and ranking risks according to business cost, pricing mitigation and multi-year planning.

It also recommends integrating risk management with the larger IT picture rather than making it an isolated exercise, an error that many risk managers sometimes make.
