Google Hangout: The Role of Managed Security Services in Optimizing Enterprise Security

DiDataLogoSecurity will always be the responsibility of enterprise executives charged with protecting critical assets.

However, the complexity of today’s threat landscape, coupled with the speed at which new attacks and malware unleashed against individuals and institutions, is making Do-it-Yourself security strategies – which manage an array of point-security solutions – increasingly untenable.

As a result, a new category of managed services is emerging based on close partnerships between in-house security teams and best-in-class security technology providers. The objective is to establish:

* A strategic framework designed to identify and fill in gaps left by uncoordinated point-solutions; and

* Tactical hands-on management tools that keep corporate security executives in charge and in control of their risk management posture.

Achieving these twin objectives requires a new approach to developing and executing security initiatives. Join us to explore how leading organizations are building the right partnerships do deploy enterprise-wide security strategies that protect assets, monitor threats and manage risks in a comprehensive manner.  We caught up with Dimension Data’s Zane West and Intel Security’s Richard Bowman on a Google Hangout session…here is what they had to say:
