Guy March of Tenable lays out the channel angle on Security.

Development has Evolved and Security Must Too.

 If we go back to the turn of the century, IT would have needed to provision physical machines, loaded with a host of applications that were physically connected to the internet, to enable a remote employee. To introduce a new service would have taken, on average, between six and eight months in production. The next ‘phase’ saw us move to the age of Virtual Machines and, while this simplified the deployment, the architecture remained the same. This was still seen as a ‘win’ in terms of agility and speed of deployment. Today, and by harnessing the power of the Cloud, enabling a remote workforce is very different and can be done in a matter of days, if not hours.
