As enterprise IT evolves, the complexity of the cybersecurity processes and the technology sprawl create an operating environment of which it is very hard to gain complete overview in real-time. In order to get over this challenging environment, we need to combine various aspects of cybersecurity, eliminating fragmentation and allowing for pain-free collaboration.
