CA Technologies' Mordecai Rosen talks about the 'app economy' and how every company is essentially a software company w/ Sean Martin

In today’s episode, Sean Martin sits down with Mordecai Rosen from CA Technologies to capture the latest story from him about what can be referred to as the "app economy."

The app economy is driving the next generation of business transformation via digital means. Tractor companies are now software companies. Banks are now software companies. Retailers are now software companies. Pretty much every company must now become a software company, too, by connecting their business processes and their products and services to their customers in unique and exciting ways. These business drivers are changing the way that security companies are talking to their customers: it’s about bringing giant advances to their business, similar to what Amazon has done.

But with these great opportunities come an increased threat surface. Things will continue to get worse, threat-wise, until companies take application security seriously.

Organizations struggle with this, however, as budgets are tight and skilled resources are slim. To overcome this, Mordecai suggests that organizations can empower their much larger application developers to help build security into every application. When cybersecurity is taken seriously, organizations can focus on achieving outcomes, experience revenue growth, and benefit from higher profits as opposed to chasing the latest threats.

It requires a cultural change, but the value of an SSDLC-driven digital transformation can be enormous.

Mordecai makes a lot of thought-provoking points here - I hope you enjoy the conversation!



CA Technologies' Mordecai Rosen talks digital transformation and the trust framework w/ Sean Martin

In today’s episode of At the Edge with Sean Martin, Sean has the pleasure of speaking with Mordecai (Mo) Rosen, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Cybersecurity at CA Technologies. During their chat, Mo tells us of his early days as a Unix kernel hacker at Bell Labs, later moving on to Sun Microsystems, and ultimately having his privileged access management company be acquired by CA technologies. An identity expert through and through, Mo reminds us that, as an industry, we need to do our best to remove the friction from security, a goal he holds to the highest level as he and his team at CA work to build a trust framework designed to enable the digital economy. Mo has already done a ton to support some of the largest companies achieve their own digital transformation, but it’s clear from my chat with him that he has a ton more on his cybersecurity bucket list. Have a listen, enjoy the chat, and you might just get inspired.
