controls for their security organization, and are well ahead of Static companies on the following key
governance attributes:
Leapfrog companies use enabling technologies for security more often than Static companies. Taking a proactive
stance helps protect their data onsite, in the cloud and across big data platforms. They put more emphasis on
pinpointing network traffic anomalies, and in providing advance warning on threats and attackers.

strategy, treat security as a
priority and align security with
the organization’s goals.
Innovation is a core component in aligning security strategies with business objectives. Leapfrog organizations
