IT network assurance quantifies risk from an IT network perspective, based on a comprehensive set[vague] of network facts.[example needed][1] A complement to IT application-level security and data-level security solutions, and a sub-set of Network management, Network assurance measures the impact of network change on security, availability, and compliance. Network assurance helps companies keep policies and defences aligned[vague] during times of rapid network change. It also helps organizations prioritize remediation efforts and validate network policies and controls.[2] [3] [4] Colleges are now offering classes specifically for this Network Management sub-domain under IT Forensics.[5]
