Modern enterprise networks are larger and more complex than ever before, so it takes a robust and complex system like Cisco Stealthwatch Enterprise to defend them. The same complexity that makes Stealthwatch such a powerful tool can also make it seem intimidating to new users. It is important to understand the system's foundational concepts and terminology before delving into its detailed processes and procedures.
