Protect your intellectual property with application isolation
- Detection-based IT security solutions have never worked, and will never work.
- More security layers is not the answer, but smarter layers can work.
- Shift your mindset from “prevent, detect, and respond” to “isolate, contain, and control.”
Layer after layer of security is not stopping breaches. We can’t keep the bad guys out. Oddly enough, 80+ years ago we learned it was mathematically impossible for detection-based security to stop cyberattacks. There will always be vulnerabilities for criminals to exploit, yet IT security continues down the detection-based path. Organizations continue to add on more security layers, hoping that each new layer will be the answer. And yet, ransomware, phishing attacks and data breaches are the new normal. We are inundated with news reports, and yet we feel unable to protect ourselves, our data and our intellectual property.

Some of the most recent data breaches could have been reduced, even avoided, by segmenting the network and applications. Of course network segmentation is not a new concept, but the adoption is slow due to configuration complexities and difficulties accessing the segmented data.
- One approach is to add new PCs that can only access the segmented data. However, this is a huge expense and massive time in deployment which in the end will slow down innovation.
- Another approach is virtual desktops that allow users access the segmented data. But historically virtual desktops have been plagued by poor performance. Moreover, if the source PC accessing the virtual desktop is infected with malware that can result in an enterprise-wide breach.
- Segmenting IP and sensitive data is another layer of defense, but you may still be at risk if you don’t isolate the applications that are accessing you IP.
