In Cyber Security there is not a single technology or product that can protect an entire organisation from the complex Cyber Threats of today. Cyber Security needs to be approached with a defence in depth (DiD) methodology, that looks to create a series of layered and interconnected security solutions to protect an organisations valuable and sensitive data.
In the event a single security layer is penetrated through an attack, DiD ensures there is no single point of failure through collaboration and communication between the multi-layered defences, isolating and preventing the attackers from advancing further. The concept is, the more layers of security, the harder it will be to breach all defences.
The question being asked, is “which vendors and technologies do I select to give me this level of protection”, along with the inherent challenge of evaluating the extensive point products on the market and the growing disaggregation of security architectures. Yes, it is crucially important to identify technology solutions that will provide the best levels of protection, but they must also look to reduce complexity, simplify management and aid rapid response and remediation to protect the business.
Through a Security Fabric it is possible to combine a suite of products that offer combined intelligence, reporting and management to allow IT Security teams to operate to new levels of efficiency, grow and limit the pressures new and additional technologies can introduce.
