Advancements in attacks drive cyber security technology modernization

Advancements in attacks are a driving force behind the modernization of cybersecurity technology. As cybercriminals become more sophisticated and employ advanced tactics to evade detection and gain unauthorized access, organizations must continually update their cybersecurity defenses to protect their networks, systems, and data. This is especially important as new technologies and business models create new attack surfaces, increasing the complexity of cybersecurity threats.

Moreover, regulatory requirements are also increasing, and non-compliance can result in significant financial and reputational damage. By adopting advanced cybersecurity technologies, organizations can ensure that they comply with regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) while also mitigating the risk of cyberattacks.

Overall, advancements in attacks are driving the need for cybersecurity technology modernization, and it is essential for organizations to stay updated with the latest cybersecurity technologies to protect themselves against ever-evolving cyber threats. By prioritizing cybersecurity technology modernization, organizations can ensure their business continuity and protect their reputation, customers, and intellectual property.

Some Cyber Tech becoming fast obsolete      But new tech help fend of modern attacks 

Legacy Firewalls Legacy Firewalls
Firewalls are not bulletproof: “October 2022 Fortinet Firewall Vulnerability may allow an unauthenticated attacker to perform operations on the administrative interface via specially crafted HTTP/HTTPS requests”.

Data Diodes Data Diodes
“Data Diodes: Super Security or Super Pain? Issues with TCP and bypasses.”

Password Encryption Password Encryption
60% of large companies and 90 percent of midsize companies will implement passwordless methods for more than half of their operations over the next few years (2020).

“At least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served mainly by ZTNA instead of VPN services by 2025—up from less than 10% at the end of 2021.“

Zero Trust Zero Trust
The ZTNA market has continued to mature and grow at a rapid pace of 60% YoY 2019-2025.

IT/OT convergence IT/OT convergence
“By 2025, 70% of asset-intensive organizations will have converged their security functions across both enterprise and operational environments.”

Invisible Security Invisible Security
“Cybersecurity teams need to cloak all assets by providing no public IP addresses or open ports willing to accept connections. ”

White Box Cryptography White Box Cryptography
“Cryptographic key discovery is one of today’s most prevalent threats in industrial networks. White box cryptography is an important aspect to the strategy of the cryptographic key protection”
