Given the new age threat landscape, CIOs and CSOs across the board can no longer bank upon a fortified periphery that would protect the organization’s crown jewels.
Hackers have evolved and so has their modus operandi. Tried-and-tested security measures can no longer protect an organization’s data.
The third quarter of 2016 alone saw 18 million new malware samples being discovered
Since 2016, the enterprise has witnessed over 4000 new ransomware attacks, that’s a 200 percent spike from the last year
77 percent of successful attacks were either file-less or exploits techniques. All of them bypassed existing endpoint security solutions
Fledgling technologies making waves in the security space: Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), IdA, Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR), and User Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)
Tools such as Network traffic analysis, Deception platforms, End point detection and response (EDR) will help in improving the detection and response
Continually evolving malware families are rendering it impossible for organizations to prevent all attacks. The focus has now shifted to early detection and containing zero-day exploits
Increase in adoption of Security as a Service (SaaS) applications will lead to adoption of security tools around them such as Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
By 2020, one-third of successful attacks experienced by enterprises will be on data located in shadow IT resources, including shadow Internet of Things (IoT)
