With another year of too many high profile, and quite frankly avoidable, data breaches under our belts, it’s time to take a look forward and identify areas where you may be able to improve your security program and hopefully become more efficient and reduce risk more effectively.
It’s not always the bad guys that sabotage enterprise security efforts, sometimes organizations do that all on their own.
Security researchers at Google this week made public two vulnerabilities in almost every modern processor shipped since 1995 that could allow attackers to steal passwords, encryption keys and other sensitive information.
In the technology world, it is rare that three uniquely positioned vendors converge to provide a common solution which addresses security, performance, and operational benefits as Bitdefender, Citrix, and Nutanix have around Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
When it comes to enterprise security, cloud was supposed to help simplify security efforts. But it didn’t turn out that way. Today, the typical large enterprise has its legacy environments, public clouds, private clouds, private hosted clouds, and various hybrid flavors of each to secure. And within those systems applications are becoming containerized, and broken into many different discrete services. All of this is not only fundamentally changing the way enterprises must secure their environments, but also significantly increasing the complexity in doing so.
Many cybersecurity organizations are of the opinion that threat intelligence can prevent, or if not prevent entirely at least lessen, the impact of successful breaches.
Conventional endpoint security solutions - originally designed for hardware-defined, premise-based infrastructure - are unsuitable for the modern data center. As a result, 58.4% of IT execs say that the lack of infrastructure-agnostic security is the main challenge in the data center transformation process.
In 2017, global spending on cybersecurity totaled about $86.4 billion, while in 2018 businesses will reportedly spend $93 billion, according to estimations from Gartner.
Each December, security researchers make predictions for the following year, and they always seems to sound the same: attacks will increase, malware will be more sophisticated because hackers are upping their game, so IT executives must secure their infrastructure or else. So what can enterprises expect from the threat landscape in 2018?
We’re on the verge of a complete transformation of healthcare, as traditional telecare is about to be dethroned by connected care, according to a research report from Berg Insight. As telecare applications and devices collect and store large amounts of data concerning patients’ health, physical location and daily movement, companies in this segment will have to deal with the challenges of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Bitdefender has been named an Advisory Board member for the Linux Foundation-hosted Xen Project formed of major cloud companies, virtualization providers, enterprises and silicon vendors that advise and support development of Xen Project software for cloud computing, embedded, IoT use-cases, automotive and security applications.
