McAfee Exec Discusses the “Automation Quandary”

More sophisticated threats. Limited resources. What’s an IS team to do?

Even among all today’s buzzwords, “automation” rings out loud and clear. Business process automation. Home automation. Network automation. You name it – it’s becoming automated. Automation is, after all, the key to streamlining processes, reducing costs and enhancing productivity and efficiency.

At this year’s Xerox Security Summit, McAfee Chief Technical Strategist Candace Worley discussed the “automation quandary” – the case for and against automated information security.
