How about consolidation? ie logs, and then run a sim/sem (security incident/event management) software of some sort so 
that your admins don't have to look at 10 consoles to determine whats going on.
You can also look at reducing your user repositories, eg use AD as you're primary source for user info.. most places 
have users scattered across a few directories..

If you were told by a VP to simplify security for your organization, what you think would be a starting point?  It's 
seems vague.  We run Windows servers/desktops that are built on the same images.  We use Cisco switches/routers/etc.  
I'm not really sure where to start.
