Presentation Title: Security Platforming versus Best-of-Breed: Who Wins?
Speaker: Michael Farnum
Abstract: In the past, a few security vendors pioneered the idea of multi-product “single pane of glass” platforms. They failed for the most part. Today, many of the vendors that only offered best-of-breed point products back in the day have turned to the idea of a platform. And they are succeeding. But that doesn’t mean that the best of breed is dead. The reason that platforms are succeeding is the same reason best-of-breed can also succeed. Which one is the best? The answer: that depends.
