Martin Roesch, Vice President and Chief Architect of the Cisco Security Business Group, said that complexity is a real problem to be addressed and while we complain about it, no one does anything about it.

“It is a big deal as there are 551 vendors here, does that mean it is 551 complimentary things?” Roesch, who founded Sourcefire, discussed that he had talked to an IDS vendor who were building a company around technology, and he advised them to think about what they were bringing, and the cost to implement on top.
