Simplicity = Greater Security
Complexity has been a growing problem for cybersecurity for years. As the threat environment has grown more sophisticated, organizations have typically responded by adding new tools to their security stack, often to the point where complexity is increasing risk, instead of reducing it.
Research from Palo Alto Networks indicates that large organizations and enterprises are using more than 130 tools on average, and even mid-size companies are using 50 to 60 tools. There has also been a critical skills shortage in cybersecurity for years. Given the shortage of security experts and the surplus of tools and threats, organizations must simplify security tasking wherever they can.
