Time for a new approach to IT security?

CRN was joined by executives from four leading VARs and Sophos to find out if the shift in industry rhetoric from 'protect' to 'detect and defend' is real, or just hype

It's no longer about stopping the bad guys getting in, but instead accepting you'll be compromised and working out what to do next. Traditional preventative controls such as firewalls and AV are old hat.

Or at least that's what the big vendors and analysts - both of whom are trying to punt their latest wares - would have us believe.

In an effort to cut through the hype, CRN invited four leading IT security suppliers and one of the leading IT security vendor, Sophos, to discuss whether this supposed industry shift is actually happening at an end-user level. And, assuming it is, what is a channel community used to selling AV and firewalls meant to do about it?

Tune in to this heated discussion to hear the opinions of Sapphire's David Lannin, Integrity Solutions' Mark Evans, SecureData's Marty Legg, NTT Com Security's Garry Sidaway and Sophos' John Shaw.
