Security: RSA 2012: Security Products That Deliver What You Need
The 2012 RSA Conference kicked off with a bang Feb. 28 with a choir singing on stage, "You Can't Always Get What You Want." RSA Security Executive Chairman Arthur Coviello, who delivered the opening keynote, echoed the theme. It is impossible to deliver a world with no security risks, just as it is impossible to live in a world where there are no traffic accidents. The security industry has to get better at reducing risk to a point where risk can be managed, and organizations have to accept there is no way to keep attackers out of the network. However, just because the network will inevitably be compromised, doesn't mean that data loss or damage can't be minimized. The IT security industry has come a long way toward developing technology that gives organizations access to risk-based, agile and context-aware platforms capable of analyzing what is happening on the network and prevent network penetrations from becoming a disaster, said Coviello. "If you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need," was another theme from the musical number. With these lyrics in mind, security vendors set out to offer IT shops what they need to prevent the next disaster. eWEEK looks at some security product highlights from the show.
