    Traditional Security Paradigm

    Intelligence: Intelligence is the new kid on the block. This refers to the investments in understanding the security threats to your organization and capabilities to respond to these threats. There are solutions and services in the market that pertain to continuous monitoring; threat and attack detection, incident response and forensics fall into this category. While few leading organizations have embraced these, most organizations are still dabbling in these areas, trying to build an understanding of how these technologies can help. As with any emerging technology, lots of seemingly different options are available and that creates confusion in the market.

Security is a hot topic today. Only a few years ago, security was on the back burner of most IT departments, seen as a necessary evil with few executives ever exposed to it. With the recent spate of high-profile attacks and ensuing losses, IT security is now viewed as the difference between an organization's ability to carry out its mission and going out of business. This is why security is a topic frequently appearing on board meeting agendas and piquing the interest of C-suite executives.

While funding and awareness have increased, it is unclear if organizations are making investments in keeping up with the evolving security landscape. A lot of the newly available funding and resources have been allocated to the existing funding gaps and "perceived" deficiencies in an organization's security posture. This is why IT security is a $58B market today but organizations are not any safer than they were a few years ago. In this slideshow, Shel Sharma, marketing manager at security startup Cyphort, discusses the evolution in the security landscape and how to align new security budgets and resources with this new paradigm vs. investing in more of the same old security.
