Too much of a good thing?

My Network World colleague
Sandy Gittlen has an interesting - and somewhat provocative - take on the state of security on our networks. In "Security: Are we on overload?" she asks if we've spent too much time reacting to threats with piecemeal solutions (which are easily approved, budgeted and installed) leading to the possibility of not seeing the security forest because the band-aid trees are getting in the way. Ultimately, this could make the network less secure as new layers poke holes in earlier ones. I know its led me to take a look at my security services "in toto" rather than one-at-a-time.
