Issues and challenges
Siemens is a global player focused on finding ways to improve life in many areas. The company has a passion for technology, sets standards and creates sustainable value for its customers, for society and for each individual. Siemens has identified that its employees are increasingly using business applications to support their work, leading to greater use of the Internet and, in turn, a growing number of “attack points” that are potentially vulnerable.
The company decided to enhance its capability to respond rapidly to the increasing number, scale and complexity of Internet threats. This was also an opportunity to simplify its network and security operations to enable faster and more effective response management.
