Unfortunately, the faltering economy has also meant deep cuts in IT budgets. Although IT budgets are being reduced, the need to protect sensitive data has not gone away. IT security professionals are frustrated by this. How can security be provided in a budget constrained environment? A solution is needed quickly for this critical business issue.
