Chief Information Security Officers have been grumbling for some time about the perplexing abundance of cyber security point solutions and the lack of integration among them. Enterprise security departments often need to buy a separate solution per threat or vulnerability. In many cases, these newly introduced solutions don’t communicate with one another, and, worse, they tend to require security teams to log on to multiple, vendor-specific management consoles maintaining dozens of point solutions, each targeted at a niche gap within a comprehensive defense strategy.
We agree with the CISOs on both counts: the need to consolidate resources and the claim that, historically, vendors have done little to “play together.” However, we also believe that in 2014 there has been increased cooperation and partnership among cyber security vendors to the point that the CISOs’ concerns are finally being addressed, albeit gradually.
