Enterprise Information Security in Transition: An Opportunity for IBM
Many CISOs are in a no-win situation. On the one hand, they face a dangerous threat landscape and need to secure new IT initiatives such as cloud computing, mobile computing, and social media. On the other hand, they continue to rely on discrete point tools, under-staffed organizations, and manual processes as the basis of their security defenses. This mismatch leads to ever-increasing risk to organizations and IT assets, an unacceptable situation. ESG believes that information security discontinuity is driving fundamental changes across enterprise security that encompasses people, process, and technology. As this transition occurs, IBM may be one of few vendors with the appropriate enterprise products, resources, and expertise to address new enterprise security requirements.
