The key message at RSA Conference 2017, which gathered more than 40,000 participants in San Francisco, was to boost security innovations and partnerships among security vendors and customers.
The IT security topic is on the rise nowadays and attracts more attention in the face of a rising global trend of security attracts. Leading cybersecurity experts shared best practices and presented innovative tools to reduce and prevent even the most sophisticated security attacks.
Thus, the Sirin Software team, after attending this event, tried to summarize the latest cybersecurity trends:
- Two-factor authentication
This approach protects your internet accounts with an additional required authentication form, text message/phone call to your mobile, or fingerprint to access to your account
- IoT & Mobile security
IoT attacks are becoming widespread nowadays and the latest tools, demonstrated at RSA, help to identify and mitigate attacks on the network edge, such as multi-vector attacks (application, network protocol or high-rate volumetric attacks).
Mobile operating systems’ security threat detection was a hot topic at RSA, so key presentations were devoted to automated testing of Android and iOS mobile apps security.
When a company has a DevOps software development and delivery approach, it needs to have security professionals in the team who will build and test their own cybersecurity tools. Security developers must be integrated in development and deployment processes to collaborate and share their security knowledge.
- Network visibility and SIEM approach
Decrease blind areas in your network and have much more visibility of your own network, even from inside server farm and virtual environments. More visibility can help you predict any attack.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) integration is a complex set of effective security technologies that has to be implemented to receive real-time analysis of network security alerts.
The growing need in use of Managed Security Service Providers and the lack of qualified security staff drives significant transformations in the cybersecurity field. The main problem every company faces today is to build a security tool in-house or to find a Managed Security Service provider for a long-term partnership.
