Software-defined security functionality. Software-defined everything makes it easier to deploy, configure, and scale security controls.
Artificial intelligence. AI uses algorithms to comb through mountains of data to increase detection/blocking efficacy, provide granular risk scoring, and fine-tune decision making.
In the past, many security controls were based upon rules/heuristics and often required ample time for deployment, configuration, customization, etc. When the two advanced prevention trends come together, they produce security controls that are easier to deploy, easier to operate, and offer more accurate detection/blocking rates. Thus, organizations can deploy advanced prevention controls, decrease the attack surface, reduce security noise, and focus precious human resources on high-value tasks.To read this article in full, please click here
