Employ simplicity as a tool used to keep your systems running securely and efficiently. Simplicity helps eliminate network clutter, performance issues, cost, and reduces risk. Give yourself the space to step back, analyze and test carefully to ensure all your systems and networks meet a secure standard. Streamlining processes greatly enhances uptime and quality of service, as well as aiding in secure systems.
Bruce Schneier, in 1999, wrote for Information Security, "You can't secure what you don't understand." His predictions hold true:
Further evidence supporting the benefits of simplicity, while decrying the challenges created by complexity, was posted recently by Dr. Gene Spafford of CERIAS, on their blog. As an example, "It is simple that complexity creates problems...the security implications of all this complexity have been obvious for some time." You'll find the entire post enlightening.
