In a recent Gartner survey, analyst John Watts writes, “security and risk management leaders are increasingly dissatisfied with the operational inefficiencies and the lack of integration of a heterogenous security stack. As a result, they are consolidating the number of security vendors they use.”
By reducing the number of security vendors, organizations can create efficiencies across procurement cycles, training, implementation, and support. As part of this effort, companies can also remove duplicate functionality across tools to optimize what they already have deployed. Consolidating tools within a single management solution simplifies security workflows and ensures that AppSec programs are set up to succeed.
Critical to the consolidation effort is an efficient way for organizations to quickly and accurately understand their risk posture through a single source of truth. With a centralized way to connect security data, software resources, policies, and insights, organizations can make quick, informed decisions to immediately bolster their security posture.
