Businesses can fall into the trap of deploying multiple-point solutions to address specific security issues. But this is an approach that is fraught with peril, particularly as the global security talent gap and other factors limit the availability of skills to run these solutions, and their siloed nature impedes a comprehensive view of threats. In this blog, we examine some of the reasons why managing multiple security technologies can hurt your security posture.
Anyone that manages an organization’s security knows that there is a technological solution for every security issue. Because these address a specific need, such as firewall or endpoint protection, organizations often have multiple point solutions at work within their environments. But without backend integration of these technologies and the range of skills to manage them, the point solution approach can actually hurt the organization’s security posture, not strengthen it.
Here are 5 downsides of managing multiple-point solutions:
While the downsides of in-house point security solutions can actually hurt the organization’s security posture rather than help it, there is an alternative.
Today, there are more than 3,500 vendors that deliver a range of outsourced security services that address specific security needs and augment in-house cybersecurity efforts.
Through these services, organizations can access advanced, integrated technology stacks and expert resources that effectively and efficiently correlate data; monitor the environment; consolidate, tune, and filter alerts to minimize false positives and surface critical threats; and escalate detected threats based on a custom security playbook. The result is simplified and affordable cybersecurity and improved security posture – without the downsides associated with maintaining point solutions in-house.
