What Are Use Cases

So, you’re checking out what a use case is. Well, I hate to kill all the hype, but it’s exactly what it sounds like. A case in which you may use something. Simple enough right?

Well let’s start with a use case. We want to use our car and go really fast. Great, we have this accelerator function that makes the car go VROOM! 0 – 60 in no time flat. That’s amazing, this product meets your use case of going really quickly.

We may want to put a little thought into other use cases, such as, umm, well, I just went really fast, now maybe I want to slow down a bit before my life flashes before my eyes in a fiery explosion of carnage and mayhem? Right? Not dying is probably a good thing, at least in my experience it is.

If we don’t ask the right questions, then whatever product we purchase may only meet a sliver of our use cases while the rest of our needs are “On The Roadmap” to be delivered in a later release. That doesn’t help our whole I need a product that won’t kill me now situation right?

In days like these where technology is changing ever-so-rapidly, we need to think about what we are attempting to accomplish before we spend days, months, or sometimes even years implementing new technology that could only meet a fraction of our needs.

This is why we are bringing you the Cyber Security Use Case blog. Hopefully, as you visit us more, you can use our use cases to help make better decisions on securing your environment, or you know, reach out to us on Twitter, LinkedIn, or by contacting us!
