RSA Security Debuts Smart Identity, Security Analytics Technologies
VIDEO: RSA Security President Amit Yoran wants to help IT exit the "dark ages" of security.SAN FRANCISCO--Amit Yoran, president of RSA Security, is a realist when it comes to the state of IT security in many organizations, and he's not all that impressed. In a meeting with press and analysts at the RSA Conference here ahead of his keynote today, Yoran outlined his views on the state of modern IT security and announced a pair of new products from RSA Security. "The security market is fundamentally broken," Yoran said. "The approach that our industry has taken is irreparably flawed, and we have to change." RSA Security itself is also changing, as Yoran said the company is going through a massive transformation. "We're making some bold moves and some big bets, but we think that's what's need," he said.
From a product perspective, one of the bold moves is the new Via platform, which Yoran called a reinvention of RSA's authentication and identity management capabilities. He explained that Via is all about providing identity assurance from any device at any time using whatever method the user wants to use.
