Security Solutions Discussed by Industry Leaders in Interviews with HP, ImageWare Systems, T-Systems, CyberLock and Isabelle Alfano - CARTES Event Director

RYE BROOK, NY, July 18, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX)

HP Enterprise Services

Mr. John Diamant, Distinguished Technologist, CISSP, CSSLP, HP Secure Product Development Strategist & U.S. Public Sector Application Security Strategist, HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, Cybersecurity Solutions, told us, "It's certainly important to invest in traditional security (firewalls, infrastructure, anti-virus, and so forth), but clearly we see an underinvestment in application security as it typically represents less than 10% of security spends, directly resulting in a weak security link. Reactive security, such as security patching and security testing, remains important not only as quality controls, but also from the security standpoint. However, if enterprises continue to build their entire security quality model on just reactive measures, it should not come as a surprise that successful attacks will continue to dominate the news. This said, IT professionals must proactively require, architect and design security in up front. Building security in early combined with the commonly performed reactive security testing and patching as appropriate, can help enterprises get ahead of this dilemma."
