About this talk

In most enterprises, you have the phenomenon of tool sprawl - the overlapping abundance of technology in which only 20-30% of a product’s functionality is being used. A product is acquired for a particular use case, then another use case and another, resulting in a potpourri of tools with overlapping capabilities and features. Whether its instances in the cloud, security tools, network management or even the proliferation of personal productivity and LOB SaaS applications, the consequence of technology sprawl is not only financial waste, but also user frustration, security risks, operational inefficiencies, technical debt and lack of visibility into the organization’s processes and functions. Join ExtraHop and (ISC)2 on December 3, 2020 at 1:00pm Eastern as a panel of IT and Security executives discuss the root causes of technology sprawl, a path out of this cycle and the benefits to be achieved.
