A New and Flexible Approach to Security Management Using a Combination of People, Processes and Technology
Businesses today don't operate in a "One-size-fits-all" world. Instead, they require tailored products and services that enable them to mitigate risk, help demonstrate compliance, and improve security operational efficiency. Regulatory compliance is a worldwide issue that requires accurate oversight. Internal threats are also an issue as authorized account holders (e.g., employees, customers, partners, and suppliers) engage in behavior that ranges from mischievous to malicious." Addressing these security risks requires a new and flexible approach; one that IDC has begun calling a security "Hybrid." This hybrid approach comprises three major security components: products (hardware and software), managed services, and professional services.
