Security Manager KPIs – Actionable Security Management Intelligence

Anyone who attended the RSA Conference 2015 last week in San Francisco likely found themselves overwhelmed by the presence of security intelligence.

Whether it was the palpable human intellect present in the Moscone or all the security solutions positioned around the term “intelligence” on the show floor, one thing was certainly clear – the industry isn’t lacking in this area.

People smarts aside, many providers including FireMon have leveraged “intelligence” to articulate the value of their solutions for some time. The rise of the formal “threat intelligence” segment –the aggregation, analysis and delivery of information regarding emerging attacks – has only served to further popularize use of the term.
