Helping enterprises align security and compliance with strategic business objectives [15:51]

A conversation with Don Elledge, Founder and CEO of Edgile.

Businesses today are striving to keep up with a rapidly evolving security and compliance landscape. Change is everywhere. Regulations are multiplying. Traditional perimeters are falling away. Enterprises are becoming more distributed, using technology to interact with customers more effectively, improve supply chains, expand outside partnerships, and transition internal workforces to work from home environments. This is creating tremendous value. But it’s also creating new risks.

Looking at security through a business lens

In this podcast hosted by Evan Schuman, Don Elledge explains that he anticipated many of these changes in the early 2000s, when he was still a partner at Deloitte. He talks about how he built Edgile as a security consulting firm that looks at digital transformation through a business lens, creating client solutions that capture strategic advantages through technology.

“Edgile’s business-aligned security approach is proactive, not reactive, and in sync with what the modern enterprise needs to do,” explains Elledge. “We combine expertise in three distinct practice areas—Identity, GRC/IRM, and Cloud Security—enabling clients to approach security not as a cost center but as a growth enabler.”
