Aberdeen Group Publishes IT Security, Financial Management and GRC Research

Research Examines Managed ERP, Professional Services Automation, Agile Project Management, Enterprise Performance Management

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/13 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Security, and Financial Management and GRC research practices.

Recently, a leading government agency published analysis that suggests that just four specific endpoint security controls would have successfully protected against at least 85% of cyber intrusions they actually experienced. The first of three research reports authored by Vice President and Research Fellow Derek Brink, leader of the Aberdeen Group IT Security research practice, "Virtual Patching and Database Security: An Effective Compensating Control," confirms that patching promptly is part of highly effective approaches to managing vulnerabilities -- but notes that patching is not always practical or even possible, which is why many companies look to virtual patching as an effective compensating control. One prime example: virtual patching in the context of database security.

"Protecting Your Intellectual Property: It Starts with a Single Click" notes that when it comes to protecting your organization's confidential information and intellectual property, a single click by a single enterprise end-user can lead to compromise -- or it can result in greater protection and control. Aberdeen's research shows that involving the end-user in data classification at the time of content creation, and automating the application of technical controls such as encryption or rights management at the time of content publication, are more likely not only to reinforce established security policies, but also to transform end-user behavior and create a sustainable corporate culture regarding data protection over time.

The report "Best Practices in Managed File Transfer" notes that file transfer should provide the secure, reliable means to support collaboration between individuals, and to integrate business processes within (and between) enterprises. It sounds so easy, but a detailed look at your enterprise file transfer activities will likely reveal multiple modes and multiple use cases already in place, implemented with a hodge-podge of digital "do-it-yourself" approaches. A customer case-in-point describes how global banking and insurance services leader ING Group elevated file transfer from a tactical problem about encryption and protocols, to a more strategic, holistic solution for a core business process with multiple use cases -- with appropriate security and reliability designed in.

"Big Data Visibility and Analytics for Cyber Security," a video from Derek Brink, describes how leading companies are augmenting their traditional approaches to IT Security, which are primarily reactive and forensic (i.e., an investigation of "what happened, and why"), to also incorporate a more real-time and predictive capability (i.e., the ability to identify, contain and respond quickly to "what is not normal"). Technologies that help companies make better use of the incredible volume of data that is already being generated by their IT infrastructure include log management, security information and event management, and security intelligence / analytics -- the objective of which is to capture and integrate the data, analyze and get insights from the data, and ultimately to act on the insights for the benefit of the business.

"Risk Management through Effective Financial Planning, Budegting, and Forecasting," written by Ankita Tyagi, Research Analyst for the Aberdeen Group Financial Management and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) research practice, explores the connection between financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting (FPBF) and risk management. Specifically, are organizations with a sound FPBF strategy also adept at mitigating risk? This report answers this question by comparing companies reporting reduction in risk exposure by 10% or more to companies reporting increased in risk exposure by 1% or more, over the past year.
