The perimeter is gone
I agree that some security tools are "watching the perimeter doors." I think that this is a general problem with many IT Security deployments. The perimeter is gone and Ponemon Institute published an interesting survey related to the recent spate of high-profile cyber attacks.

According to the survey database security was recommended by 49% of respondents, but the study found that organizations continue to allocate the bulk of their budget (40%) to network security and only 19% to database security.

Ponemon concluded that "This is often because organizations have traditionally spent money on network security and so it is earmarked in the budget and requires no further justification."

My company does this.  Very effective defense against insider threats finding the Snowden sneaking around my source code and IP.
