Many technology professionals have to fight paralysis of analysis. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with options in a technical realm. Simple is hard to do. This blog provides wisdom on how to make a security solution decision.

The challenge of securing our networks is accelerating, primarily in direct response to digital transformation efforts that are expanding the attack surface. Cybercriminals are all too eager to exploit new attack vectors and take advantage of new limitations in our visibility and span of control.

The problem is that too many of our security solutions not only operate in relative isolation—meaning that they don’t do a very good job of sharing threat intelligence with other security tools—they also still tend to be perimeter-based, which is ironic given that the industry has been touting borderless networks for quite some time. Part of the problem is that even as the border is eroding, we still tend to think of our networks in traditional terms, with an assumption that the data center sits at the core, the network is reasonably static, and that all other elements — mobile users and devices, branch offices, and multi-cloud environments — branch off from that central network in a hub and spoke design.

Today, however, data is highly distributed, and the perimeter is not only disappearing, it is being replaced with a sophisticated, meshed network of networks made up of components that are not only virtual, but are frequently temporary
