Art Gilliland on the need for security as a service

By Brian McDonough, Discover Performance managing editor


Our main Discover Performance site just wrapped up a two-part interview with HP Enterprise Security Products SVP Art Gilliland (which you’d know if you were signed up for our e-newsletter), and the new installment covers a lot of provocative thoughts, including the idea of protecting less data, better.


In this excerpt, Gilliland discusses security as a service.  As cloud and software as a service move into corporate IT departments, two security questions have been, first, how to secure those services, and second, whether it makes sense to buy security services from a cloud provider. HP jumped into that arena with Fortify on Demand, and here, Gilliland discusses why (and when) a SaaS model for security makes sense.
