From the Front Lines: 5 Best Practices for Application Defense in Depth

Everyone knows applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply and come at an ever-faster rate, protecting those applications becomes a massive challenge. Layer in the issues associated with moving applications to the cloud, using open source code, implementing rapid release cycles, and being forced to use legacy apps when the development team is long gone, and it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless job. Layered security, or defense-in-depth, is an admirable goal. The problem is, how do you achieve it? We've been on the front lines for years, finding what works and what doesn't. In the process we have distilled five best practices that will help enterprises of any size tackle the thorny problem of application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant. 

A combination of defenses at the edge, in the network and inside the applications themselves forms the core of the best practices. Layered on top are two additional practices that make all the difference: full real-time visibility with analytics, to help beleaguered security analysts quickly distinguish real threats from noise and take action based on full context; and a consumption model that allow the enterprise to quickly, easily and cost-effectively move protections to where they will do the most good. The result? Vastly improved application security, effective remediation, and a DevSecOps model that works.

Minimizing the Detection to Recovery Timeframe

While recent trends have shown attackers are more frequently using simple tools and tactics to make a big impact to the overall global cost of data breaches, sophisticated threat actors utilizing advanced techniques to avoid detection could potentially have the greatest impact to an organization's bottom line. While commodity threats continue to make the case for investment in preventative technologies, stricter regulations around breach notifications all but mandates increased investment in advanced detection and response capabilities. Now more than ever is minimizing the detection to response timeframe of utmost importance to ensure an organization is able to not only detect threats but contain and respond in a time frame that minimizes the potential risk of impacting their clients and suffering the business altering implications of compliance violations. As organizations begin to address this transition, knowing where to start is a challenge. We invite you to join us, as they cover the best path going forward and real-life examples of how advanced detection and response capabilities were able to thwart attackers and satisfy even the most stringent emerging regulatory requirements.

Think Tank

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services. As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency 
  2. Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization 
  3. Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models

Scaling Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud Usage without Sacrificing Data Security and Compliance

Analysts claim that 50% of today's public cloud data and workloads will migrate to private clouds in the next two years. But, don't worry about the public cloud behemoths because their average CAGR continues above 20%. However, the result is that cloud data is spreading across multiclouds and increasingly migrating to private clouds that offers the Enterprise more control. This acceleration in lift and shift of workloads creates data security and compliance risks as well as management complexities. In this discussion, we'll share trends and best practices for enabling data portability without compromising security, compliance, and operational efficiencies. 

Takeaways: 

  • Sharing trends seen by analysts and your peers on multicloud adoption and challenges 
  • Discussion of best practices for leveraging native cloud data security services effectively to maintain compliance and control 
  • Methodology for efficiently applying data security techniques that allow for secure lift and shift between public and private clouds
