A number of factors, such as digital transformation initiatives and the growth of remote work, have contributed to the increasing complexity of corporate networks. While these networks are growing more difficult to secure, corporate security teams and cybersecurity resources are not expanding at the same rate. Organizations require a robust security management architecture to keep up.
Security management platforms are systems designed to provide a centralized and unified platform for security teams to manage enterprise network security. By providing centralized visibility and policy management, unified security management systems maximize the utility of an organization’s security team by minimizing the wasted time and overlooked threats created by the need to learn and monitor multiple different standalone systems.
As a result, security teams are able to eliminate inefficiencies and more effectively protect their networks against cyber threats.
Modern enterprise networks are large, complex and contain a number of different systems and environments, such as mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices and on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure. Many organizations have deployed an array of standalone security solutions to address the unique security requirements and potential attack vectors created by these diverse systems.
Security management platforms are designed to integrate these standalone solutions into a single security system. Unified security management software provides a number of advantages to an organization:
