Network/Endpoint integration initiatives gaining traction at advanced organizations driven by threat management and security analyst teams.
A waste of time and effort unless cybersecurity professionals and the industry beyond the Beltway jump on the bandwagon.
Information security is often described as a constantly accelerating treadmill: Cyber adversaries advance their attack methods and security vendors ramp up their countermeasures. In the meantime, security professionals are expected to keep up with developments on both sides and understand the ramifications of these changes for their organization’s information security policies, procedures, and controls. When taking into consideration the proliferation of malware and the challenges brought on by BYOD, it is no surprise that security professionals are finding it more difficult to protect their networks than ever before. Network security also grows more cumbersome as new users, applications, and devices add network traffic and threat vectors to corporate LANs and WANs.
