Re: People are weakest link
That's the key though; the goal of automation should be to support people, not to replace them.  When the goal is to replace them, you are almost always setting yourself up for failure.

Re: Visibility tools
This helps to identify many potential policy errors that may have been committed unintentionally. This makes sense. As we discussed people are the weakest link anything we can do to help them will eventually help the environment.

Re: Visibility tools
Visibility tools can help you visualize network and policy flow. That is true. They also need to learn from the network since the threats would change.

Re: Visibility tools
The reality is that very few IT administrators have an accurate picture of what is actually happening in the network I would agree with that. If a complex network it would be hard to understand and have visibility to all the security details in the network, that is why automation is a good option.

People are weakest link
I like the automation of security policies to support people since they are the weakest link in the process.

Visibility tools
The reality is that very few IT administrators have an accurate picture of what is actually happening in the network and do not have automated tools that can quickly identify, interpret and act on threats. Network visibility tools help security professionals discover things about the network and user behavior that had never been considered before. Visibility tools can help you visualize network and policy flow. They can show how a particular type of traffic currently travels through the network, and what security policies that traffic affects. This helps to identify many potential policy errors that may have been committed unintentionally.
