Why converged security matters: The business benefit of integrating security with IT operations

gerben verstraete.jpgBy Gerben Verstraete


Managing security risks in the enterprise takes a coordinated effort. In many organizations I work with, security is isolated from IT management functions and lacks complete insight into services operations. Security is often an afterthought when new IT capabilities are being built and deployed. This can be a huge liability when your trade secrets, customer details, or brand names are at stake.


By integrating information from IT operations and security, you can add enriched context to both infrastructure and security operations. Doing so lets you automate the process of pinpointing threats, thwarting harmful intrusions before they can cause significant damage.
