In this podcast recorded at RSA Conference 2012, Anup Ghosh, CEO of Invincea, tells us how security hasn't advanced much in the past decade from a technology point of view.
At the same time, virtualization emerged as a key technology that enabled the compartmentalization of untrusted content.
The breakneck speed of technology evolution, the ever changing threat landscape, and the increasing flexibility, ingenuity and persistence of cyber attackers have made security-minded executives realize that everything they are currently doing is not enough to keep their networks safe from intrusions.
In this podcast recorded at the RSA Conference 2012, Val Rahmani, CEO of Damballa, talks about the three things that currently worry CSOs and CIOs the most: the "unknown threat", the lack of effective automated log analysis, and BYOD.
The mobile app has become the endpoint. With the advent of consumerization and BYOD, the number of managed devices began shrinking and that of unmanaged devices continues to rise.
Consequently, device-level protection techniques have slowly given way to new technologies that focus on protecting the apps themselves and the enterprise data they hold.
In this podcast recorded at the Amphion Forum in Munich, Mike Siegel, Mocana's VP of Products, talks about the challenges of securing mobile apps in the enterprise.
"In our industry, most of the companies we were working with have spent the the better part of the past ten years securing the perimeter of the network with intrusion detection, prevention systems, as well as firewalls," says Mike Potts, President and CEO of Lancope. "And what we're seeing now is that that is simply not enough."
Like with computers, mobile phones, cars and many other things that man created, thermostats, automatic doors, insulin pumps, control panels for a great many instruments and other embedded devices were first created to function without little or no thought for security.
But things change, and embedded devices - those small, programmable chips that are becoming so ubiquitous as our modern lives become increasingly filled with electronic tools and gadgets - will have to become more secure as time goes by.
In this podcast recorded at the Amphion Forum in Munich, Mocana CTO James Blaisdell talks about securing embedded devices.
