Cybersecurity is such a multifaceted affair that it can be difficult to prioritise focus, spending, and what to explain to the C-suite.
All the while, cybersecurity incidents are costing your business hundreds of thousands of dollars. According to a 2017 US State of Cybercrime survey, the average loss from a single cybersecurity event was $884,000.
Of course, the C-suite has to hold somebody accountable. That somebody is usually a CISO who is not only being bombarded with expectations from security and in other areas.
So what’s a targeted solution? Let’s bring the cybersecurity problem right down to the packet level.
According to a study network security provider Gigamon, network traffic has accelerated to the point that many systems can’t keep up with the speed and volume required. When they can’t keep up, they can’t analyse the entire traffic volume. That’s how malicious code can slip through. The speed and volume of network traffic—benign or not—have escalated so rapidly that many security tools and systems simply can’t keep up.
At 100Gb network speeds, the gap between data packets is 6.7 nanoseconds, according to a Gigamon study. You need systems that can cope with that delay.
