"Security professionals are fed up with having multiple vendor point solutions and appliances. The call is for integrated, cloud-based security."
The rapid adoption of cloud computing, mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT) has reduced the effectiveness of traditional appliance-based security architectures. Coupled with increasingly more sophisticated cyberthreats and major public breaches, security has become an item on the boardroom agenda.
But as organizations focus on securing their confidential information and systems, they often express dismay with the multitude of point solutions and the number of appliances in their security portfolio.
In this research study, Forrester Consulting surveyed security decision-makers to evaluate how they view their existing security infrastructures compared to both integrated security platforms as well as cloud computing/software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based delivery models. They found that 98% of decision-makers believe an integrated platform can deliver better security functionality than point solutions.
