Facing the reality of internal risk: Thwarting insider threats

When we think about IT saboteurs, most of us picture a professional cyber-criminal or hacker bent on stealing confidential information or wreaking havoc.

Industry views: Look for more spending on convergence, insider threats

The speed of change in IT security is intense and often seemingly chaotic. Security solutions today must constantly morph to reflect not only the shifting needs of customers, but also the advancing capabilities of security threats.

Senior executives, meanwhile, want simplicity and better command and control over the many security solutions they implement. Despite this ever-changing landscape, there are, however, a number of general trends that, from our view as investors, are likely to organize and drive development of IT security products and services over the near and intermediate term.
