What’s the best way to deliver results for enterprise customers?

In a Q&A keynote Tuesday at the 2013 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit, Symantec CEO Steve Bennett noted that that no single vendor can offer an all-encompassing mobile security product portfolio. Instead, IT security vendors should cooperate to build a better ecosystem than attackers can, and focus less on competing for customers' security budgets. "There's no way, no matter what anyone tells you, that they can solve this problem by themselves." Bennett said. "None of these shiny new objects people are pushing will solve your problems." Do you believe this to be a true statement, or more a reflection of how Symantec would like to approach to mobile security in the future?

What are your thoughts on the security of the basic SDN stack?

Based on the research and experimentation you have done with SDN, what have you discovered about its security and integrity? Shamus McGillicuddy Shamus McGillicuddy Profile: Shamus McGillicuddy

    I believe it is a problem that the marketing types of the major product vendors are, once again, conveniently ignoring. Just like everything else, they are all breathing each others helium and making each other feel oh so good about. Until totally secure controllers are made, that might need to be put on proprietary and secret operating systems to keep hackers at bay, I would rather distribute my control around as I have for years. I have never liked the single vendor approach, and I am not going to start today.

    Thanks for your thoughts. The security of SDN controllers isn't necessarily about single-vendor approaches, especially when it comes to OpenFlow. The ideal OpenFlow network would be vendor-agnostic. The market isn't there yet, but that's the intent.

How is your company handling its storage needs?

Even though companies are moving to the cloud to solve their data storage needs, the market for physical servers is very hot. Which direction do you see your firm taking? More cloud or more racks? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh
