Transforming Security from Defense in Depth to Comprehensive Security Assurance
How can you close the gaps left by layered security defenses?
Even though organizations are spending more than ever on security solutions, attackers are still penetrating systems and major breaches are occurring every day. The problem is defense in depth. Layers of information security tools designed to protect our networks are leaving us vulnerable.
Layering is no longer working…
While your security investments may be effective individually, they must work together to deliver a comprehensive solution. Deploying multiple tools and redundant solutions creates an illusion of protection, but in reality, this approach creates security gaps – holes that attackers can easily exploit.
It’s time to transform security from a defense in depth model to holistic security. Achieving a comprehensive solution requires three pillars of security assurance:
This paper explains the principles behind comprehensive security assurance. Read it to better understand how you can identify critical gaps and achieve complete protection.
