Security Operational Maturity
// The Challenge

Shelfware Issues

Don’t leave your front door unlocked

One of the biggest challenges enterprises face today is the problem of shelfware – investing in advanced security tools but failing to utilize them effectively. It’s akin to having a top-notch security system while leaving your front door unlocked. Our Security Operational Maturity Model (SOMM) service focuses on identifying and resolving these shelfware issues.

Wasted Investment
Resources spent on security tools that are purchased but not fully implemented or utilized fail to deliver their intended value.
Unaddressed Vulnerabilities
Tools acquired to address specific security vulnerabilities remain ineffective if they are not properly deployed.
Reduced Security Posture
The overall security posture weakens when intended protections are not actively in place.
Missed Opportunities
Many advanced security tools offer features that can significantly enhance an organization’s security posture. Not using these features means missing out on potential security improvements.
Compliance and Resource Drain
Compliance issues arise when mandated tools are not functioning as required, leading to a drain on resources.
Increased Complexity
Acquiring security solutions without effective deployment or integration can lead to a complex and disjointed security environment, making management more challenging.

According to Fortinet’s Networking and Cybersecurity Adoption Index 2022, less than 49% of the organizations surveyed could detect a breach in less than 30 days, suggesting that most organizations are at risk of advanced, persistent threats that could go unnoticed for longer than 30 days. Moreover, 23% of businesses take between two and three months to detect a security breach, significantly impacting the security of the affected individuals and any financial and reputation loss that the organization incurs.
