It’s a sports analogy-filled episode of The Great Security Debate, but don’t let that scare you away. This week, we cover a whole host of topics, primarily focused on the ideas of simple vs. complex and best-of-breed vs. tightly integrated when dealing with technology, change, process or securing your environment.

Note that all American Football references were to games that had not yet been played at the time of recording. Congratulations, University of Michigan Wolverines on winning the Big Ten championship later that evening.

We also have a video channel on YouTube that airs the “with pictures” edition of the podcast. Please head over to and watch, subscribe and “like” the episodes.
