Companies need to embrace consumer and Web 2.0 technologies, rather than ban them, according to security vendor RSA.

Christopher Young, RSA senior vice president of products, told an audience at RSA conference in London on Tuesday that firms could fall behind competitors that use innovative technologies.

"[Organisations] try to fill USB ports with epoxy or ban iPhones," said Young. "Resistance is often futile and counterproducitve. Organisations that buck these trends are likely to be left behind by the competition."

Young said that firms which develop strategies to harness innovative technologies were more likely to succeed. He added that security must be embedded into the IT infrastructure, and that security controls must be correlated and content aware.
