The CISO is under immense pressure, expected to manage a dozen or more vendors across perimeter, endpoint, network, application, and data security, not to mention having to be an expert on policy and operations. Hackers in many cases have the upper hand, and the human element is still the weak link.
Because of this, more and more enterprises are realizing that what we offer to automate some of this is no longer a nice-to-have…. It is a must-have! At the same time, we’re able to clearly show our differentiation from the vulnerability assessment vendors, and we are more versatile than the cloud-only solutions. Look at it this way, best articulated by one of our customers, Cepheid. VA will tell you how many windows and doors you have, and which are open. We take the next step, and tell you how to close them. And, if you are so inclined, we’ll do the closing.
The API-first architecture of our new Pulsar platform was also top of discussion, with potential ecosystem partners realizing the need for a unified view of overall security compliance, be it server, endpoint, identity, or vulnerability, and across all clouds and containers. If you missed it, check out our Pulsar General Availability PR. In all, a more than successful first day for Cavirin’s first RSA presence, based on both the quantity, and more importantly, the quality of discussions and demos.
