Technology Consolidation and Rationalization

 

Identify Gaps. Consolidate Tech. Improve ROI.

Evaluate and Optimize Your Existing Cybersecurity Tool Stack

The amount of security tools organizations have is staggering and ever-growing. It’s this tool expansion that is causing decreased visibility into security control gaps, redundant tools and capabilities and increasing your costs. Now is the time to maximize the value of your security tools.
 
Optiv’s Technology Consolidation and Rationalization offers expert, data-driven analysis on ways to reduce risk through a comprehensive review of your technology stack against business outcomes and requirements. By pinpointing gaps in coverage or compliance, as well as identifying tool capability redundancies, we can develop a strategy that identifies where your organization should invest, and how this investment aligns with your current situation and growth opportunities, to reduce both costs and risk. Optiv’s Technology Consolidation and Rationalization service leverages unbiased technology insights and a deep understanding of your organization’s unique environment to maximize security tool value, provide strategic options to increase your security and drive business success.

Optiv Company - Technical and Functional Deficiencies

Surfacing Gaps

 

Technical and functional deficiencies are clearly identified by security control, along with recommendations and level of importance.

 

  • Technical deficiencies – Existing products are not capable of addressing specific use cases and/or security control functions
  • Functional deficiencies – Products owned can address specific use cases and/or security control functions but not fully operationalized to do so

Finding Opportunities

 

Discovering potential integrations in your tool stack is key to having disparate tools work together. This gives your security teams the right information for faster threat detection and a more effective response. Learn which existing tools can be configured for tighter integration to provide additional benefits not currently in place.

Roadmap to Success

 

Recommendations from Optiv experts are organized to build out a strategic security technology roadmap.

 

  • Short-range items contribute the most time-to-value in control deficiencies and reduce information risk
  • Medium-range items typically are moderate-to-high complexity and might need business cases for prioritization in the organization
  • Long-range recommendations have a high degree of integration, optimization and innovation, resulting in hyper-resilience

Technology Consolidation and Rationalization Analysis Process

Technology inventory: Work with Optiv subject matter experts via interviews and documentation review to gather discovery data on your current suite of tools across eight security domains, 23 subcategories and 130+ security controls.

 

Analyze data: Evaluate how your tools are being used, how well they meet your needs and how much coverage they provide across a spectrum of levels.

 

Visualization: Receive a controls map that visually identifies gaps, redundant tools and areas of opportunities through unused capabilities, integrations or even tool retirement.

 

Deliver opportunities and actions: Get an extensive written report that provides an executive overview of the findings and recommendations.
