Visibility, intelligence at the heart of next-generation security

May 29, 2019 / Christopher Tredger

Cyber security experts say built-in intelligence and visibility are the hallmarks of the next generation cyber security technology. At the ITWeb Security Summit 2019 being hosted this week in Sandton, Johannesburg, a panel of experts led by Stefan van de Giessen, GM of cyber security, Networks Unlimited, said an effective IT security ecosystem involves the consolidation of tools, with intelligence and analytics that feature strongly in technology deployed to protect the network. Sam Linford, regional director, Carbon Black, said it is important to reflect on the evolution of endpoint security over a forty year timespan. Linford said when businesses request this service, they have in mind both visibility at the endpoint and automated threat prevention. But today it is about the use of cloud-based big data analytics functionality to analyse, understand and predict threats.
