Abstract: Tools Rationalization: Is Now the Time?

Companies are continuing to pivot in response to 2020 and the unexpected operational and financial impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic. Along with these changes, technology continues to evolve. Whether your company is on the journey to the cloud, maturing it’s processes, or updating systems, can we continue to use the same security solutions that we have always used? With new solutions that seem to offer so many features, would they be redundant with something you already have?

Now is a good time to consider the solutions in your security stack. Whether it be for efficiency, better coverage from emerging risks, or, budget constraints as businesses continue to be impacted by the pandemic, tools rationalization can offer benefits. The challenge for many companies is where to start. In this presentation we will discuss how to begin to evaluate your security solutions and identify opportunities to reach your goal whether it be the three mentioned above, or additional drivers that you face as a security professional.
