Watch Guard Technologies throws light unto Need for Information Security Visibility

WatchGuard Technologies

New Delhi – December 3, 2013 — If one tends to pay heed to the currently conducted research sourced from the stables of Frost & Sullivan,  then information security professionals doesn’t have adequate visibility into the very matrix of information they are tasked with securing. Henceforth, it is but painfully obvious that in such a situation, this visibility gap can lead to data loss besides the same being prone to attack.

In a recent on-demand webinar in collaboration with WatchGuard Technologies, Jarad Carleton, Principal Consultant, Frost & Sullivan shared the results of a survey the firm had piloted. The full outcome of the said survey are outlined in a webinar which WatchGuard has recorded and posted to its blog. The following happens to be an excerpt from the blog post :

“Security in depth is important, but again multiple systems with multiple dashboards increase the burden on overtaxed InfoSec professionals. By distributing where information lives and not having a way to connect the systems or servers that house a businesses’ lifeline, the risk of a hack or exposure through vulnerability can go unmitigated. Research shows that only 15 percent of IT spend is funneled toward detecting an intrusion or compromise.”
