We live in a world where millions of data records are being compromised every day, and that number is predicted to grow exponentially as the work from anywhere world is becoming the norm. What is concerning to business owners and operators in all industries is that the current approach to security is simply not sufficient. This begs the question then - what is?
Historically, cybersecurity is an ‘after the fact’ step that is applied to protect hardware and software that’s already in place. The issue is that this approach is neither scalable nor manageable. It is impractical and unsustainable to keep adding layers and layers of security onto existing technology. This approach has become even more obsolete as trends like remote working, bring your own device (BYOD), cloud, AI, 5G, and IoT devices expand the number of potential data vulnerabilities across every area of the enterprise.
Enter Intrinsic Security
Intrinsic security isn’t a cybersecurity tool or product. It isn’t tactically deployed. Intrinsic security is an overarching strategy for incorporating security at the foundational level of your customers’ technology infrastructure. Intrinsic security factors in users, IDs, devices, assets and data in real time across any app or cloud so that you can identify risks and prevent threats at the scale of today’s digital operations. By embedding security at the core your customers’ technology solutions, an intrinsic security approach allows you to be proactive instead of reactive when managing their cybersecurity needs.
An intrinsic approach to security is made up of three core principles:
•Built-in: It builds security controls directly into the infrastructure
•Unified: It removes silos between IT, OT and security teams with a common architecture
•Contextual: It provides the context customers can understand with the threats they’re facing and the endpoints, workloads, networks and clouds that you’re helping them to protect
