As conventional, self-managed IT security proves increasingly costly and vulnerable to hackers, hosted services are rapidly growing in popularity. Though security as a service (SECaaS) is not a new idea – it’s time has come. As we look at market and industry trends, we predict that security as a service (SECaaS) will become the defacto business model for security very quickly, and we illustrate three real-world examples of how this is happening today.
Quite often you will see news talking about zero-day attacks or vulnerabilities. What does this mean exactly? Here's a short answer to the question.
In the world of information security, we often see statements such as ‘secured by 128-bit AES’ or ‘protected by 2048-bit authentication’. We are used to people asking about the strength of the cryptographic algorithms deployed in a security solution. Algorithms such as the AES, RSA and ECC have a proven track record of being difficult to break. They are successfully deployed in protocols that protect on a daily basis our identity and the integrity and confidentiality of our data. Consider as examples the use of SSL or TLS when you buy a book at Amazon or when you connect to your bank account to transfer a sum of money. Or the use of IKE and IPsec when you connect your laptop to the company network to check on your email and read documents stored on the company network.
With today’s newest technology, tools and scalable infrastructure, filmmakers can now bring interactive storytelling to a mass audience. There are many ways of doing that, one of them being the MOSAIC by HBO and Steven Soderbergh.
Here is the latest infographic from Inside Secure. It highlights the importance of secure mobile apps in the future. Payments are steadily getting more and more into mobile. Therefore secure yet usable solutions are needed to develop the technology and keep accounts away from hackers' best efforts.
How To Secure your IoT Product: Ron Keidar (Inside Secure) gives a presentation at IoT DevCon 2017, describing a simplified process of securing an IoT device. Starting from known and new trends in IoT threats, he breaks down security into its elements, and assembles them into a sample solution.
