The WAN edge is becoming more distributed and dynamic, which is overburdening IT organizations that are already at a breaking point. Software-defined WAN technology has solved some of the issue, but they haven’t gone far enough. The cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the work-from-home (WFH) revolution demand something more.
It’s time to circle the wagons and defend the data and users
As the world reopens, the conference booths light with excitement and empty expo halls are once again filled with hustle and bustle. I thought it important to take a moment and look at what changed in the past two years and where the security industry has room for improvement. This was the first in-person RSA Conference, and likely the first major security conference at all for that matter, with large in-person attendance after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the conference looks very similar to conferences before the pandemic, the cybersecurity industry landscape has drastically changed.
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend Informatica World 2022 (IW22) in Las Vegas. Returning to the in-person conference scene caused some apprehension; however, reflecting on takeaways and engaging in discussions around data integration made this trip a worthwhile experience. I want to thank IW22 for a thought-provoking week of discussions centered on data management, data integration, interoperability, artificial intelligence, and navigating a complex, hybrid, multi-cloud digital environment with Informatica experts, sponsors, and customers.
Long gone are the days of simple, signature-based defenses against cyber-threats.
Cyber-threats are growing at an exponential rate in the perpetual cat-and-mouse game of cybersecurity, and traditional approaches to cybersecurity are struggling to keep pace. In 2021, anti-malware vendors estimated that they detected between 300,000 and 500,000 new pieces of malware every day. That means than in 2021 alone, over 100 million new pieces of malware were created. Even if cybersecurity vendors can keep up with the sheer volume of new pieces of malware, traditional signature-based and even heuristic-based detection algorithms will struggle to keep up – and that’s only for known malware.
Data center network automation delivers four primary benefits to a business, according to Enterprise Management Associates research: operational efficiency, reduced security risk, improved compliance, and network agility.
It's been quite an interesting couple of weeks. What started off with rising tensions as Russia amassed troops at the Ukraine border evolved into a full invasion of the country. Our newsfeeds are filled with stories and images of ace fighter pilots, brave soldiers making their final stands, and farmers stealing Russian tanks by hooking them up to farm equipment – but another battle has been taking place behind the scenes for many years.
This is the last in a three-part blog series by Enterprise Management Associates for Axonius discussing how vulnerability management can be expanded and simplified by using a cybersecurity asset management solution.
