2017 Security Transformation Study

In the Face of Advanced Threats, Is Your Organization’s Security Posture Reactive or Proactive?

Sixty-one percent of security leaders rate the strength of their organizations’ overall security posture as above average or superior, as compared to peers in their sectors. Yet, 77 percent of these same leaders say advanced threats against their critical information systems have increased over the past 12 months. And 46 percent say that, when it comes to detecting and stopping these advanced threats, their organizations’ security postures are mostly or fully reactive.

These are among the results of the 2017 Security Transformation Study sponsored by Tata Communications. About 260 global security leaders participated in this survey, which was conducted to determine:

• What is the state of organizations’ security posture in 2017?
• Which factors most prevent organizations from enhancing their threat-hunting capabilities?
• Which key investments will be made over the next 12 months to create a more proactive security organization?
• What is the path to proactivity in terms of utilization of an MSSP?

Replacing Legacy AV - Benefits of the BlackBerry Cylance Approach

Legacy antivirus solutions are built upon several outmoded technologies ranging from byte-matching to post execution behavioral analysis. Threat actors have adapted to these well-known cybersecurity measures and responded with increasingly sophisticated attacks. For example, using byte-matching to identify malware has been foiled by attackers implementing polymorphic, single-use, and fileless attacks. Post-execution behavioral analysis is too risky of an approach when modern ransomware may encrypt vital data before malicious activity is detecte ...

AI-Driven Threat and Incident Prevention, Detection, and Response

Traditional cybersecurity approaches suffer from two glaring weaknesses. First, they rely on the digital signatures of known malware in order to identify threats. This approach leaves systems vulnerable to new and non-catalogued malware. Second, they are reactive in nature, ascribing to the “it’s not a matter of if, but when” mentality and often responding to the damage caused by zero-day threats only after they execute. Guarding against known threats is important but in the modern threat, landscape organizations must also address the over 350, ...
