When you consider the number of headlines that appear on a regular basis about major data breaches—despite ongoing increases in security technology spending by organisations—you have to come to the conclusion that something isn’t working.
The fact is, the traditional ways of protecting IT assets are no longer effective in today’s increasingly complex threat environment. Many vendors tout the idea that having a collection of disparate technologies will provide better protection because each technology will stop some threats. But these products don’t scale and they provide ever-weakening protection. Even using several of these traditional products is not sufficient for identifying and stopping the latest malware attacks.
