With hundreds of security companies offering a diverse and innovative set of solutions, prioritizing your security efforts is getting harder all the time. Presenting the most important strategies in a visual model is even harder, and thankfully we can count on the folks at Gartner to put a lot of horsepower behind creating something simple yet compelling and actionable.
Where I find Gartner’s Adaptive Security Architecture to be especially relevant, in terms of handling today’s emerging digital enterprise behaviors, is that it brings threat prevention back to the forefront. The Gartner architecture takes the broad universe of possible security approaches and distills them down into four general categories: predictive, preventive, detection and response capabilities. To lower IT risk, their model describes a continuous response approach instead of an incident response method – developing comprehensive protection by integrating predictive, preventive, detection and response capabilities.
Diving a bit deeper, it then takes prevention a step further, detailing 3 critical capabilities an enterprise needs to address the category - including isolation. Not familiar with modern isolation technology? Gartner Analyst Neil MacDonald explains it in this new webinar, brought to you by Menlo Security, including how isolation fits into your advanced threat protection strategy.
I won’t spoil it here, but let’s just say that the Gartner findings in this webinar might surprise you about how the most advanced threats infiltrate your organization. Their model and recommendations may even have you rethinking where you place resources and budget for security this year. Gartner’s visual model definitely makes it easier to have that strategic discussion.
