Micros services
 

"... it operates on a distributed architecture on a number of micro severs. As a result, a portion of the business could fail but it would still be able to operate. "

I agree. When it comes to secure software development I would say micros services would help us better to get control of security vulnerabilities.

Security and Productivity
 

"In general, people will turn off the web proxy if it impacts user productivity and it gets them off their backs,"

Interesting, I still think we can find a way to be productive and be secure at the same time

Re: Quantity vs quality
"The 'Boss' can see the numbers of productivity better than the esoterics of quality, security and continuity."

I hear you. That is part of the business I would say. We can be all secure but not productive that business will not be around much so the security of that.

Security vs. Productivity
 

"The survey of 175 security professionals found that 64% of respondents admit to lowering the security bar when asked by top executives to allow workers the flexibility to remain productive."

I am not surprised by this, at the end of the day if productivity is not there security could not be sustained.

Quantity vs quality
THis happens in most, if not all, forms of human industry. Manufacturing, Retail, Medicine, Education, and, yes, even NetSec/SysAdmin....This is why, in America, most of these endeavors suffer and the skill of the labor force is weakened...The 'Boss' can see the numbers of productivity better than the esoterics of quality, security and continuity...hopefully we will learn to see the whole AND the sum of it's parts before the whole thing blows up in our face..
