Look around the cybersecurity infrastructure at any enterprise organization and here’s what you’ll see – dozens and dozens of cybersecurity tools from just as many vendors.
Now this situation wasn’t planned, it just happened. Over the past 15 years, bad guys developed new cyber-weapons to exploit IT vulnerabilities. Large organizations reacted to these new threats by purchasing and deploying new security controls and monitoring systems. This pattern continued over time, leading to today’s patchwork of security point tools.
So, what’s the problem? Point tools aren’t really designed to talk with one another, leaving human beings to bridge the communications, intelligence, and technology gaps between them. Furthermore, each individual tool requires training, deployment, configuration, and ongoing operational support. More tools, more needs.
