Securing a corporate network always takes a multi-headed strategy, but TechRepublic is interested to know which security mechanism is viewed as the most important by IT professionals.

If you selected "Other," please join the discussion to let us know which security mechanism you would choose.

And the 'other' is 'Users'. Making users 100% bulletproof includes them sticking to secure sites, deleting spam unopened, scanning attachments and portable drives, and avoiding other unsafe behaviors. Then I could concentrate on the productive technologies instead of the security ones.
