Formalities over, why bother with yet another security product?

I have had the same model of Swiss Army Knife for over thirty years. At the time I got it, it was probably the top of the range model. I worked in research and development for quite a few years and I would have felt naked without it.  Probably all the tools have been used in one way or another, often not for their intended purpose. Usually only a sub-set of the tools got used on a regular basis, and now that I am in software the main tool is the bottle opener. The great thing about such a device is its general purpose nature. You can do almost anything with it and a little imagination. Sometimes you need to do something; you whip it out and its “job done”. Other times though, it’s only better than nothing in an emergency – I would not like to carve roast beef with it, for example. I have sometimes really fumbled and sweated trying to achieve something that with the right tool would have been accomplished in seconds without risk to whatever I was working on.

The same applies to software but people tend to believe otherwise. They are looking for a magic solution to every problem when, in reality, the best you can hope for is to have the right combination of general purpose and specialized tools. SAP Enterprise Threat Detection is like the carving knife in the kitchen – the best tool for its purpose.
