Cyber security in focus
The risk of cyber-attacks for companies is constantly growing. Demand for defense strategies is correspondingly strong. Sasa Petrovic, solution strategist at Citrix, explains the five factors that will shape cyber security this year.1 Feb 2022
1. Long wait times for patches will be outdated
Organizations will provide automated and verified updates to their people and technologies using cloud services that are continuously patched and updated.
2. Increased complexity due to modern technologies
In the future, enterprises will rely on unified processes and interoperability and demand products that work together as a platform. This will give them greater visibility and control while reducing their resource consumption.
3. AI finally lives up to the hype
With the help of artificial intelligence, companies are now able to improve their security measures. Determining the behavioral effectiveness of the cybersecurity portfolio, performing continuous pen testing – especially for complex API dependencies – and defining trusted sources, chains and relationships for technologies and processes are easier to implement with AI solutions. In addition, companies can evaluate their experiences to determine the optimal balance of security, productivity and cost.
4. Zero Trust becomes Digital Trust
Zero Trust is a prerequisite for trustworthy digital transformation and accelerates the establishment, deployment and codification of trust across the enterprise.
5. Eliminate the password security risk
Passwords are the zombies of the Internet; they just will not go away. However, that is about to change: According to a recent Citrix study, a password-free environment is important to nearly three-quarters of security managers (72 percent). As a result, companies will increasingly rely on credentials and trusted factors such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and FIDO2 this year.
