One of the largest drivers of the inability to appropriately defend organizations against security vulnerabilities is still the lack of integration and coordination between security and operations. By leveraging IT automation capabilities, leadership can facilitate integration and coordination between the Security and Operations (SecOps) teams for a proactive approach to securing networks and servers, a critical concern as enterprises look to fast track digital business.
BMC's BladeLogic Threat Director remains the only automation solution that natively integrates vulnerability scan data with operations data, ultimately allowing for accelerated, enterprise-grade remediation for both servers and networks. In the recent BMC and Forbes Insights survey, 97 percent of executives expected to see a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Through a clear task list, operations can address threats based on policy and impact, using criteria that protects uptime and maintains stability to ensure the most critical issues are fixed first. Leveraging operations inputs, the security dashboard provides key insight and updates to security teams on remediation workflow progress. Through the dashboard, an open dialogue is created for both teams to align priorities while doing away with opening tickets that never seem to reach a conclusion.
"In the simplest terms: an enterprise IT team can't manage what they don't know about," said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). "As lack of visibility leaves doors wide open to attacks, there is a continued need for innovation and investment in SecOps solutions to identify unknown assets and dependencies across the entire enterprise ecosystem, while incorporating automation to rapidly prioritize and execute remediation. Visibility and simplicity is the key to switch from the current reactive mindset to a proactive security approach."
