Cisco: TrustSec – The Cybersecurity Enforcer

So many newsworthy hacks in recent years have had a staggering impact on literally millions of consumers and businesses. While these hacks have perhaps made us numb to their effects, the reality is these breaches represent the new normal in today’s digitized world. And given that attackers are growing in number, sophistication and intensity, many global businesses must continuously evaluate their cybersecurity strategies just to keep up.

 The Need for a Simpler and Integrated Security Solution

What stands out in many breaches is not that adversaries were able to penetrate the network through a known vulnerability. Rather it is the fact that the security breaches made their way into the network interior, then were not detected for months after the initial infiltration! While we do not know if this lag is due to poor processes, technology shortcomings or both, what we do know is this confirms the alarming industry trend that it takes businesses on average between 98 to 200 days to detect cybersecurity attacks that have entered their networks. So, the delay in publicly announcing many recent breaches, coupled with long detection times means hackers have many months to laterally move and steal our most valuable personal data.

Recent breaches also make it evident that organizations’ security strategies (or lack thereof) are not robust enough to identify and contain security threats in a timely manner. Forward thinking security executives understand that implementing a strong security strategy is essential to maintaining the health and integrity of their businesses. In fact, according to our recent cybersecurity report, 74 percent believe their tools are very or extremely effective in blocking known security threats. [1]
