Re: Security Programmers vs Security Tools
Conversely, there's only so much you can do to guard against the best of the best (for instance, nation-state intruders).  But most companies aren't even doing all they need to do to keep general riffraff out.

Security Programmers vs Security Tools
I'll be interested in seeing how the numbers are crunched in the differences between organizations that go with security tools and admins, and those that go with programmers who are experts in security analysis, design and on-the-fly programming to react to threats the standard tools don't cover, or don't cover well.

We've seen too many Enterprise security solutions being marketed out there with deep data analysis, general network controls and access monitoring, and etc. that aren't of use when the best-of-the-best hackers do get in and begin their takeover.  Can a company have both the toolset and the creative programmer?  If not what do the numbers dictate in terms of recommendations that take into account the deficiencies of the average Enterprise InfoSec solutions?
