I have Security as one of the 6 DCAB Functional Categories. This article does a great job highlighting some key landscape changes in the overall Security Management market (some items are beyond what is covered by this blog). As it relates to monitoring/managing the security of the data center this points out some key activities:
- Web Application Vulnerability Scanning – IBM acquiring Watchfire, HP acquiring SPI
- Data Leakage Monitoring – Symantec acquiring Vontu, EMC acquire Tablus and others.
As noted, these capabilities aren’t exclusive to the data center but have applicability.
