New technologies coupled with greater access requirements to corporate applications and information has led to increased vulnerability to security leaks, service attacks and business disruptions resulting in new regulations and changes to existing regulations. Keeping up with ever-changing security and regulatory compliance issues is becoming increasingly difficult, resource constrained, and expensive.
Companies in the United States are beholden to more than 100 standards & regulations
In addition to these "100 standards and regulations", companies have internal standards and policies that are either tied to government regulations or stand on their own. All these regulations are designed to ask one question: "What is your security posture and how is it protecting your company's interests"?
To remain compliant, and more importantly, to protect their customers and company intellectual property assets; IT security has become a critical business function for companies worldwide. Unfortunately, while IT security budgets have been increasing almost exponentially over the past decade; most companies still have multiple holes in their IT security infrastructures. IT security deals with protecting the digital data of an enterprise. IT security manages risk by controlling access rights through identity profiles and monitoring data elements from the perimeter through the IT infrastructure and applications stack.
