As organizations seek greater efficiency and protection from complex threats, more are turning toward security convergence: the merging of physical, IT and OT security systems for digital transformation. By examining vulnerabilities across an entire enterprise, organizations can streamline processes, enhance cross-departmental communication, increase compliance and reduce costs. But while the benefits are clear, the road to convergence isn’t always smooth. Siloed systems include individuals from different security disciplines, who have ingrained practices — and sometimes, a reluctance to change.
With the right partner though, the process of security convergence doesn’t have to be complex or time-consuming. With 200 out-of-the-box connectors and no coding required, integration with AlertEnterprise’s cyber-physical solutions is easy — and the outcome more than worth it. Take it from one of our own: in a recent article from Enterprise Security, AlertEnterprise CSO Mark Weatherford breaks down security convergence benefits, challenges and his predictions for its bright future.
