3 Predictions We’re Making About Network Security

3 Predictions We’re Making About Network Security

Innovation has always been a major part of building better solutions, but some of the most recent trends have been in regard to enhancing security. Adapting to the threat environment is one of the most important parts of running a business, so innovation has been geared toward giving users and organizations alike the security they need. That being said, a lot can change in a short period of time. Let’s take a look at some predictions for how security will change in the near future.

Prediction 1: Penetration testing will happen more often than ever, thanks to A.I. and automation.
Penetration testing is one of the best ways that your organization can enhance network security--particularly because it’s much easier to identify weaknesses that your staff may have overlooked. Hiring an external third party to handle this is a great way to make sure that any internal mistakes aren’t repeated. Basically, penetration testing is a time-consuming process that is better left to someone other than your internal staff, who are likely to have their own responsibilities to attend to.

However, artificial intelligence and automation have made it so that even less time has to be wasted on security testing. Now that these processes can be done more frequently due to the process being automated, you can save more time than ever before. Plus, consider the fact that so much technology is added to an infrastructure in just a single calendar year, and you have a disaster waiting to happen--that is, unless you are running frequent penetration testing.

Prediction 2: Unified policies will appear that bridge between public and private clouds.
Cloud technology is more accessible than it has ever been before, prompting businesses to use both private and public cloud solutions to varying degrees. As a result, since they both have their benefits, hybrid cloud solutions are more popular today. One of the biggest shortcomings of such a convenient solution is that you can’t consolidate security policies to simplify the management of a large infrastructure, but this could change in the near future--especially when you consider how quickly technology develops. Industry professionals suspect that a multi-cloud management platform will soon be able to synchronize with your private and public clouds to create a single control panel for all of your needs.

Prediction 3: Endpoint security will be more on point.
The biggest threats to your organization's security are the people using your technology. In recent years, social engineering has increased in scope and scale, taking advantage of the rather unpredictable nature of mobile device security. Hackers are often able to take advantage of the weaker security on mobile devices to infiltrate networks and cause trouble. There still isn’t a single unified solution for this issue, but this is likely to change in the near future. Businesses want an easier time managing and maintaining mobile device security, so it’s only a matter of time before a unified solution presents itself in some capacity.
