This is something that must be addressed as complexity only makes it harder to actually secure our networks, applications and information. In addition to the complexity of managing many devices and policies is the challenge that these are all tied to critical business applications. Oftentimes, there is limited to no visibility across the organization of the impact of one or the other. For example, if a change to the security policy is made, what is the impact on the business applications that are essentially keeping the business running? Or vice versa, if a change is made to an application, is there an impact to the security policy and potentially the network? This isn’t just a security issue (ensuring that unused rules tied to decommissioned applications are also removed), but an issue of keeping the business running efficiently, as well.
