If expanded to a suite, we had good success with McAfees full suite

Ooof. One is hard. It gets easier when we think about products that provide security capabilities or assurance but they’re heavy experience products - like IDAM or SAST/DAST code checkers. Maybe the way to consider these is what budget do they come out of?

Squarely in security, I’d probably talk about a solid SIEM tool that supports security operations with SOAR capabilities. If I had to name one, Sumo Logic and the integrations and purchases they are making are interesting.

McAffe for shure

If I could only pick one, I would probably go for the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) type of solution as it covers the most surface.
Director of Technology Strategy in Services (non-Government), 2 - 10 employees
I'd go for one tht educates my staff on what they should and shouldn't be doing in their roles.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.53%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
