The Future of Security Is Already Here
Business - April 3, 2019
This blog is intended to share new ideas, insight and possibilities. This is not
about what we already know. We know there is a rise in security threats and attacks.
This is not about re-reporting the news we can read for ourselves. This is not about
using scare tactics and endless statistics about security attacks. There is plenty
of that to go around. The aim of this piece is to come away with ideas and insights
for your business and what’s possible in the new era of security.
Keeping your business safe and secure demands an entirely new approach
Why the bold call for change? The traditional security approach doesn’t work. The new
world of borderless networks has expanded the attack surface and vectors. The
attackers are more sophisticated than ever weaponizing new tactics including
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In other words, the vision and promise
of our digitally connected world - anywhere, anyone, anything and the same
technologies for deep learning, data analytics, problem solving - are now being used
against us. The perfect storm of opportunity, risk and a call for change.
The traditional security approach is ineffective and not the answer
• Single-function firewalls that focus only on a network’s perimeter defense
• Thin-layer security that does not expand across the attack surface – the network,
IoT, end points, access points and multi-clouds
• Siloed, closed-off environments exposing blind spots, inviting new and hidden
• Fragmented, disjointed detection and response taking days when should take seconds
• Reliance on cloud infrastructure and platforms demolishing the network “edge”
he approach for many has been to add more products and everything will be fine. If
they don’t integrate and talk to each other under a single system, it brings
complication, gaps in security protocols, more work and slows critical response and
The Future of Security is Already Here
The leading companies in the security industry are changing the game in fighting
threats, and there is no stop in their fight. The movement is led by an open
architecture design, advanced technologies, shared intelligence - and breaking free
from traditional security silos and mindsets.
The future of security is defined as an integrated platform that continuously adapts,
learns and protects as new threats and tactics evolve. The future of security is not
just about a next-gen firewall, SIEM or any one thing, customers don’t buy products,
they buy outcomes. It’s about strategically aligning security to key business
outcomes - such as governance, compliance, regulations, risk and asset management,
sales enablement, data visibility and insight, resource optimization and for a
The Next- Generation Security Platform
• At the core, a powerful processing engine for new line speeds, hardware
acceleration, SSL inspection, integration, throughput and performance
• The platform integrates and unifies multiple security solutions and enabled
partners expanding control and response across the entire attack surface - from the
network, end points, applications, IoT, access points to multi-clouds
• The platform combines, collects and correlates real-time data across the segments
for contextual-insight. Contextual-insight makes sense of all the logs and alerts
i.e. root cause, the interconnected relationships, sequence of events and timelines,
the false positives, enabling teams to see the big picture, the same things and act
as one without delay. In other words, accelerating and reducing detection,
investigation to response from days to seconds. Where every second counts.
• By approach and philosophy, the leaders in the security industry believe in sharing
threat intelligence and playbooks to combat the bad actors. Teams of experts,
research, discover and study breaking threats using AI and ML programs over billions
of events every day. They are the first to alert the industry on zero-day exploits.
They are the stewards, the real heroes of the security community and together help
make the world a safer place.
The new world calls for change. Now is the time to ensure you have the right security architecture and measures in
place today. Change starts from the top-level down, from breaking the silos, risk
assessments, strategy, tools, design to day to day operations.
