In the IBM Redbooks Redguide Realizing Efficient Enterprise Security Intelligence by Using IBM Security Intelligence Solutions, authors Nilesh Patel, Arun Madan, Sridhar Muppidi, and Axel Buecker explain why the classic, vertical defense-in-depth model for enterprise security is no longer adequate; as the technology corporations have adopted has gotten more distributed, the need to "place" security touchpoints has expanded in a horizontal direction. The quartet explains the four key areas of modern information security technology -- analytics, cloud, mobile, and compliance -- and focuses on using analytics not just to tease out decision-support data for marketing and financial planning, but also to use the technique for security strategy. In other words, to craft and implement a security intelligence program. A wonderful read, it includes a typical deployment scenario.
