20 Most Promising Enterprise Security Solution Providers - 2017

 

 

The role of an enterprise security manager in today’s connected world has become more challenging than ever before. Even an unpretentious-looking email can turn into a potent attack vector, rendering the company’s entire infrastructure inoperative. Last year’s high-impacting DDoS attacks are only considered to be precursors for larger and more advanced cyberattacks. In light of this, security practitioners are constantly striving to decipher the probable points of vulnerability that causes these security breaches and catalyze the development of effective solutions.

The growing consensus among business leaders to adopt attribute-based access control (ABAC) frameworks will bring more challenges in the form of setting up the system and fine-tuning it to suit their specific needs. Several early entrants in the scene have taken to explore the ABAC approach and provide tailored solutions based on it.

Similarly, AI and machine learning will continue to be chief forerunners in redefining the enterprise security posture in the coming years. Utilizing a microservices approach to break down large applications and connecting them via APIs will also emerge as a trend to decentralize the bulk of an application and lessen the potential threat of a complete shutdown through a single attack.
