A new report released today by RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE:EMC), from the Security for Business Innovation Council advocates three key areas for technology investment and recommendations for specific security technologies to better build anticipatory defenses while also improving business productivity. The report
, Transforming Information Security: Focusing on Strategic Technologies
identifies three key areas for technology investment as cyber threat resiliency, end-user experience and cloud security. This latest report offers organizations insight from top security leaders to dramatically strengthen security capabilities and maximize technology investments when considering complex deployments.
In their roles, Council members collectively observe the major innovations underway in security technology and contend that these technologies are not being developed or implemented quickly enough. Organizations now acknowledge the inevitability of breaches, and have turned attention to minimizing their impact. As such, security leaders are focusing on strategies and technologies that help provide threat resilience versus prevention and prioritizing investments in solutions that provide better detection and response capabilities. Against this backdrop, the report affirms that Big Data analytics is a foundational technology needed to help achieve a stronger cyber defense. Next-generation anti-malware technology is also identified as a key area where organizations should add new techniques to baseline capabilities. Council members highlight the importance of improving end-user experience for business productivity gains and suggest investments in more flexible methods for authentication and Identity and Access Management that help reduce risk. Furthermore, the report evaluates the latest claims about cloud security services designed to help enterprises with visibility and control.
