3 cybersecurity innovation trends to look for in 2017

Innovation is a key component of cybersecurity

by Jason Porter

Did you know that according to Cybersecurity Ventures,  cybercrime damages are expected to rise to $6 trillion annually by 2021? This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history and  risks not only our national competitiveness, but the very incentives for innovation and investment.

That’s why it’s imperative to be innovative when it comes to cybersecurity. Consider these three innovative technologies to bolster your cybersecurity defense:

  1. Identity and access management: With identity and access management systems, people and devices accessing your networks can be verified with authorization levels set for each.
  2. Threat analytics: Advanced threat analytics systems flag behavioral changes in devices, services, and users accessing systems or applications on the network.
  3. Virtualized security: An offshoot of network virtualization, software-defined security allows you to follow and protect your data wherever it goes, whether onsite or in private and public clouds.
