The digital transformation’s march to new technologies has ushered in the next tipping point. Connected device usage is exploding. IoT devices in use are projected to reach 31 billion in 2020.1
Sensors are being deployed in smart buildings and cities and
smart systems for corporate conferencing, security alarms, heating and ventilation, medical devices, among others. All these devices collect data, making them potentially vulnerable to cyberattacks. IoT devices in many industries have inherent security weaknesses, creating security blind spots. Vulnerable IoT devices are offering cybercriminals yet another attack
vector to breach data on your connected network.
Likewise, virtualization and cloud technologies have diversified from virtual machines into containers, serverless applications, and Function as a Service (FaaS). New technology adoption opens the door to unknown attacks that outpace standard security
relying on a traditional patchwork of firewalls, antivirus, and intrusion protection.
In this whitepaper, we‘ll explore how advanced sixth generation cyber security technology can help you defend against multi-vector cyberattacks and advanced persistent threats (APT), safeguarding your complex information assets.
To help you see where security is headed, let’s briefly review the arc of previous generations of cyber security controls…
