Summary: Responding to a dynamic threat environment, today’s CISO and CIO must continuously evaluate new and emerging technologies while matching services with the security needs of their respective enterprises. Yet, in today’s 'less frothy' investment climate, new security and technology companies are more fiercely competing not only for the clientele, but for the funding to support their long-term growth. As a result, today’s CISO and CIO must often decide between deploying innovative solutions from less proven companies versus utilizing trusted, legacy providers. In this maturing security environment, how do CISOs balance selecting best-in-class innovation versus more stable, reliable providers? For investors, what’s getting funded? How will the funding environment change? What advice do they have for CISOs and CIOs? For technology providers, how do you expect these changes to impact your business development and merger and acquisition plans?
