Security infrastructures have created a tremendously complex system. With people living under the fear of their cloud data being exposed, it has become difficult to attempt slightest of the changes that would lead to downstream effects or unintended consequences. In addition, the regulatory compliance bodies are sharpening their tools to levy more significant penalties and fines on those who do not comply with the minimum security standards.
Events throughout the world, such as RSA in North America, are encouraging organizations to challenge today’s security thinking and take appropriate action. There are two things to consider while challenging today’s security methodology:
Optimize existing security infrastructure:
It does not always require a rip-and-replace strategy to implement change. Most of the things simply need to be straightened and improved, rather than being replaced. The number of sophisticated attacks has become a routine. However, the attacks seem sophisticated only when compared to the unsophisticated security programs that fail to defend against them. Prevention is the solution. There may be certain loopholes in the present security infrastructure, which if fixed, will help reinforce the protection of critical systems, data, and intellectual property.
Adopting a lightweight, flexible security:
Moving towards a software-designed state will allow for more agile interconnectivity and responsiveness. Adopting Software-Defined Security (SDSec) architecture is essential to ensure that security and compliance do not slow down the movement to cloud infrastructure, but rather complements and hasten the value it delivers to the enterprise.
Speed is the necessity when security infrastructure solutions are considered. While the saturated market makes it challenging organizations to know what steps are to be taken for implementing innovative security technologies, it is crucial to choose your partners wisely.
