Third IT decision makers focus on the chain with security strategy

Utrecht, 13 October 2014 - 33 percent of IT decision makers state that the security strategy is based on an architecture that has as its point of departure that as many systems as possible work together in the chain and be managed by the IT team. This is shown by research by Telindus and Cisco among 115 Dutch IT decision makers

Utrecht, 13 October 2014 - 33 percent of IT decision makers state that the security strategy is based on an architecture that has as its point of departure that as many systems as possible work together in the chain and be managed by the IT team. This is shown by research by Telindus and Cisco among 115 Dutch IT decision makers. 36 percent of IT decision makers indicate that the security strategy is based on an infrastructure that has multivendor and / or best-of-breed technologies as a starting point and 19 percent on a solid framework, such as COBIT or SABSA, which can be clearly defined. become the desired objectives with regard to security. 12 percent of IT decision makers do not have an IT security strategy.

Harm de Haan, Manager Consultancy at Telindus, about the results: "For an optimally secured IT infrastructure it is crucial that organizations do not look at separate components, but at the chain. In this way you prevent a complexity of separate functionalities that are difficult to manage and unsafe. Security does not have to be tuned at the moment that the entire infrastructure has already been designed, but has been included in the design from the start. Security solutions within the access, connectivity and data center layers of the infrastructure work together in this way and can also be managed from one central point. "

Fred Noordam, Area Manager Benelux Security at Cisco: "Organizations that want to get a grip on the security of the IT environment have to look at the whole, from the datacenter via the network to user equipment. The research shows that more and more organizations also do this by using an architecture or framework. But in addition, organizations today have to use security solutions that are active wherever a threat can occur. Only then can they effectively take place before, during and after an attack. "
