Companies don’t have the money or the educated staff to manage a seemingly endless array of point solutions, noted Justin Morehouse (@mascasa), founder and principal of GuidePoint Security, at their “Ask the Experts” party during the 2015 Black Hat Conference in Las Vegas.
It’s not so easy to integrate so many different solutions. If you have a web application firewall solution, userbase firewall, and perimeter firewall, they need to talk to each other so users can have a better understanding of what’s going on in your network, added Morehouse.
Morehouse went on to explain why it’s better to have a limited coverage solution that’s fully operational than a full coverage solution that’s only operating a fraction of the time. With a limited coverage solution, at least you know where your gaps are and you can begin working to mitigate those issues.
