Too many products 'spoil security management'

The jumble of security products, suppliers and solutions under the bonnet of most companies is corroding IT heads’ desire for a single view of IT security.

Over three-quarters of the 600 European businesses questioned by Ipsos MORI Research on behalf of McAfee want a single view of their IT security. Yet 29% use four or more management consoles and a quarter have five or more different security suppliers.

UK companies use the most security technology, with nearly half using five or more solutions and a third using seven plus.

“Managing a range of different solutions from a range of vendors is a headache. It is also inefficient and expensive,” says Aminah Gianfrancesco, director of system security EMEA at McAfee, who suggests companies use a single console.
