I’ve spent a good amount of time talking to CISOs over the last few months to learn about their current priorities and how their jobs are changing. Of course, many of these security executives will be attending the RSA Security Conference in a few weeks. Based upon my meetings, here’s a sample of what CISOs will be looking for in San Francisco:
Early this morning, I received news that Splunk had announced its intention to acquire Phantom for $350m. Just as IBM purchased Resilient Systems a few years ago, Splunk decided to add a dedicated security operations automation and orchestration tool set to its SIEM platform.

If you want to understand what’s happening with AI and cybersecurity, look no further than this week’s news. On Monday, Palo Alto Networks introduced Magnifier, a behavioral analytics solution that uses structured and unstructured machine learning to model network behavior and improve threat detection. Additionally, Google’s parent company Alphabet announced Chronicle, a cybersecurity intelligence platform that throws massive amounts of storage, processing power, and advanced analytics at cybersecurity data to accelerate the search and discovery of needles in a rapidly growing haystack.

A few years ago (2016), my esteemed colleague Doug Cahill and I spoke with 30 enterprise organizations on their endpoint security requirements and strategies. Based upon these discussions, we came up with a concept called the endpoint security continuum.
On one end of the continuum lies advanced threat prevention. This software is sometimes referred to as “next-generation AV” because it uses technologies like machine learning and threat intelligence integration to improve the threat prevention capabilities of traditional AV products.

ESG recently completed our annual IT spending intentions research in which the study gauged not only spending plans, but top of mind IT and cybersecurity considerations for economic buyers. With strengthening cybersecurity tools and process being the most important IT meta-trend, and cybersecurity the largest area of projected incremental spend, this video blog explores the dynamics that are driving cybersecurity priorities, including:
In this video blog, ESG’s cybersecurity analysts, Jon Oltsik and myself, share some of the cybersecurity developments on our radar screen that we expect to be especially relevant in 2018 including:

For over a year now, I’ve written about a burgeoning security technology initiative that ESG calls a security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA). Here’s a link to original blog I posted about SOAPA back in November 2016.
