Securing the Enterprise

I recently wrote an article for the Line56 magazine, and it is now published on their site at Line 56 site. Here is the introduction:

When CIOs leave their homes this summer for a vacation, they will not just lock the front door but will attempt to secure every door and window. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the physical assets and IT systems they manage for enterprises. Businesses have been looking to lock down access to every critical IT system and physical location one at a time, be it consumer-facing Websites or sensitive manufacturing facilities and data centers. Increasingly, businesses are realizing this approach to securing enterprise in silos does not scale well, costs too much and does not provide adequate security. Therefore, a blended approach to security that takes a holistic view of the problem and proposes solutions that lower the security risk for the enterprise as a whole are gaining favor.
