Paul Kraus, CEO of Eastwind Networks, and 25 other executives spoke with DZone journalist Tom Smith about how the cyber security landscape is changing.
Here are a few highlights but check out the complete list at DZone.
- The advent of cloud access security or cloud security as a service. More companies are using the cloud with Microsoft Office and Google’s G-Suite. We extend threat protection to the cloud including sandboxes and DLP.
- Threats are multifaceted using well-known infrastructures. Social engineering. Most sophisticated use platforms like Dropbox, HubSpot, and other distributed techniques that are freely available. Slower cooker payload may be delivered in 50 days. Temporal difference across different application platforms (i.e., Twitter, Box, Drobox) much more complicated. Command and transport. Layer of obfuscation – not a blacklisted domain payload delivered to a CRM used as a proxy to another infrastructure. This is very complex.
