    protection in a continuous and dynamic fashion, giving unprecedented
    visibility into access control that allows the management of defenses
    on a far more granular level, while maintaining infrastructure-wide
    understanding of risk.
--  Tailor protection to prioritize defenses and respond to change driven
    by a deeper awareness of systems to data flows, providing a far
    greater ability to ensure that the existing security systems
    protecting critical areas of the network infrastructure are effective
    and correctly aligned.
--  Generate management-level insight into how security and risk are being
    addressed across the enterprise to inform decision-making and
    influence allocation of resources. This includes quantitative metrics
    that illustrate how every security-related decision is being
    rationalized and demonstrates the specific ROI of both existing and
    future investments.
