Identifying vulnerabilities in the network is just the beginning of the cyberbattle. While cybercriminals are trying to infiltrate networks through loopholes, cybersecurity professionals are finding new ways to counter their attacks. Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are bringing positive change in the cybersecurity landscape. Being able to predict possible vulnerabilities, cyber security solutions will allow professionals to prevent any kind of attack from potential weak points. Further, AI coupled with automation can detect and prevent such attacks without any manual intervention.
Companies are shifting from simple passwords to multi-factor authentication to strengthen the security on organisational networks. This will not only protect network but will also prevent cyberattacks. Another major trend in the field of cybersecurity is the introduction of blockchain. The distribution and cryptographic protection of the ledger system allows cybersecurity professionals to track and trace the movement of any item in the network. Moreover, the adoption of data analytics technologies like user entity and behaviour analytics streamline organizations to identify loopholes in their security structures and establish robust control over their IT infrastructures. These extraordinary improvements in cybersecurity are compelling companies to step up their security game.
In an effort to assist companies optimize their business processes, a panel of prominent CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, along with the APAC CIO Outlook editorial board has assessed scores of cyber security solution providers and shortlisted the ones that are distinctively prominent in the field.
