A Delicate Balance
A Visual Guide to
Secured Business Operations
Today, as a business leader, you’re on the hook. And too often in the dark,
pressured by the Three Rs of global management: Regulation, Reputation
and Risk. Regulation: CEOs sign off on Sarbanes 404 processes, and
government leaders design the regulations to protect all interests—each
not always knowing the best blueprint for implementation. Reputation:
Reputations can vanish overnight—all by what you don’t know. Risk: From
mergers and acquisitions, to global trade, to immigration snafus, cascades
of undetected risks can be unleashed throughout the extended enterprise.
And there lies the issue. Today, the devil’s bargain of globalization is the demon of
complexity: More to go right, and more to go wrong—faster, farther, and deeper than
ever before. But today, there is a way to minimize global meltdowns—with holistic
solutions that converge logical security with physical security, helping you to better
manage risk and optimize operations. That way, you avoid or take the bad
risk in stride, while focusing on the risks that truly drive shareholder
value. Balancing good risk with the bad: This is the challenge of this
new environment. One system. One view of physical and digital
reality. All driving stronger control and greater competence.
So What’s New Here?
Not the hardware or necessarily the technology. In this new world, from RFID
to iris scanners, the technology is all out there, mature, proven and affordable.
What is new is the demand to converge physical security with data security, thereby
connecting all your data and technology on a single global infrastructure. Power grids.
Air traffic control. Financial systems. Emergency response networks. Everything that
matters. All in one highly controlled, tightly connected network.
Today, these once separate worlds can be connected and protected on a single
seamless platform. This is
