Constant IT change is the new normal for organizations and businesses; changes that are empowering us with better
and more efficient use of their most important asset—information. However, three important trends in today’s evolving IT
landscape are also creating some of the most pressing challenges for enterprises:
Cloud and Data Center Modernization:
The expansion of virtualized computing, migrations to the cloud (even multi-cloud), containers, and serverless are driving dramatic efficiency and operational gains. But how do you evolve security strategies that ensure performance is not sacrificed and security gaps are not created to fit your modern data center, cloud migrations, cloud-native application development, and cloud operational excellence?
The enterprise boundary is gone, with networks extending far beyond the traditional LANs and WANs. Wi-fi, remote access, branch offices, and the cloud are giving enterprises more flexibility and
productivity. Today there are more points to protect than ever, so how do you evolve your network security to go beyond perimeter defenses and also detect lateral movement within networks?
The explosion of endpoints, the internet of things (IoT) and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) are boosting productivity—— giving flexibility and mobility to users like never before, but with the introduction of multiple devices and cloud-based applications such as Dropbox™ and Gmail® at work, how do you rethink traditional defenses?
As technology changes, security has to evolve to keep up with threats. New environments require new ways of thinking about security to ensure their vulnerabilities are identified and that performance is not compromised. Threat actors constantly look for ways to penetrate these new environments, while creating more sophisticated threats.
The Sophistication of Cyber Threats
In the early days, the threat landscape was black and white—requiring the ability to quickly and efficiently determine the known good and known bad. Classic techniques like anti-malware and content filtering were sufficient to detect and block known bad files, URLs, and spam. These highly efficient techniques remain critical for eliminating the high volume of known
bad threats still active today. Since there is an increase in stealthier and more sophisticated unknown threats, the ‘grey’ areas like targeted attacks, zero-day exploits, ransomware, and business email compromise (BEC) require more advanced threat defense techniques.
While some “next-gen” offerings rely solely on one technique, like behavioral analysis or machine learning, we believe that
when it comes to defending your organization against the full range of known and unknown threats, there is no silver bullet.
