Why Can’t We Be Friends? Group Therapy for Your Security Solutions

Michael Gleason

I spend my days (and nights) explaining how the strengths of the cloud - high availability, scalability, and interoperability - can help us overcome what is often considered its greatest weakness: security.

The modern enterprise is so heavily fortified against cyberthreats (at least on paper), it’s nearly absurd. The endless alphabet soup of acronyms is enough to induce dizziness: CASB, DLP, SWG, NGFW, IAM, EMM, MDM, SIEM, and MFA – the list goes on and on … and on.

Internet Security System

Despite hefty investments in security solutions, many organizations are still exploited and extorted by cybercriminals, leaving security professionals with lukewarm (at best) confidence in their security posture (in addition to employing an endless stream of bothersome marketing and sales folks looking to “educate” you on the “real problem”).

Perhaps the most significant problem isn’t the lack of security systems (gasp), but rather the lack of integration and interoperability among them – barring you from seeing the value of the systems you have already invested in and the insight they provide.

Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight?

As threat intelligence is fragmented across disparate solutions, security teams are at a distinct disadvantage, unable to correlate information and remediate risk across the enterprise.

Meanwhile, they’re overwhelmed by a list of security incidents to review that resembles the universe – infinite and expanding! As time goes on and the security solutions pile up, this problem compounds.

Call Me A Dreamer

The cloud represents an opportunity to reimagine modern security for the enterprise. I know it sounds ambitious, but bear with me.

If integration points could be used to connect existing security infrastructure, security teams could:

  1. Level the cyberwarfare playing field
  2. Triage more effectively by focusing on the riskiest threats surfaced by security tools working in tandem
  3. Avoid missing security incidents that otherwise slip through the cracks
  4. Leave at 5PM and finely talk to that cute non-gender-specific human being at the convenience store / coffee shop / hardware store / bonsai pruning class.

Okay, maybe not that last one. But, maybe!
