Why monitor IT infrastructure?

It is worth asking the basic question: why should you monitor IT infrastructure in a company, and what will Zabbix be useful for?


First and foremost, monitoring servers and IT infrastructure directly impacts security. They are important components of the company and contain valuable data and confidential information. Therefore, constant supervision of this data helps protect against cyberattacks and other security threats.


Another important reason is the availability of company resources and performance. No organization can afford downtime and data loss or work results to function effectively. Monitoring helps avoid technical problems and malfunctions, which is why large companies oversee their IT infrastructure. Moreover, monitoring ensures the quick and smooth operation of applications and other devices, translating into better efficiency and productivity for the company.


Finally, savings. Taking care of servers helps save money on costly repairs, potential compensation related to data leaks, or system outages due to failures.


That's why large organizations monitor IT infrastructure. Why should you implement Zabbix for this task instead of investing in another tool? Let's find out.
