Tech Consolidation and the Final Acts of Once Vital Point Solutions – Jess Burn – RSA21 #4
Of particular interest to me from our newly published “The Forrester Tech Tide™: Zero Trust Threat Detection And Response, Q2 2021” are what look like the final acts of several solutions once considered vital detection and response point products. While automated malware analysis (sandboxing) and network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) remained in our Divest category, three more technologies joined them this year: data loss prevention (DLP), managed security service providers (MSSP), and security user behavior analytics (SUBA). Why is this? Because these stand-alone technologies simply don’t cut it anymore. This isn’t to say these solutions are dead, mind you. No, they live on within larger, more comprehensive solutions.
