In today’s connected world, there is a sharp increase in the use of digital technologies, making businesses more agile and adaptable. However, this has lead to a surge in the number of potential ways cybercriminals can gain access to enterprise networks. Cyber attacks are constantly evolving and its detection is becoming tougher by the day, therefore, it is necessary for businesses to have apt cybersecurity measures in place to thwart these threats. At the helm of helping advance cybersecurity, experts are leveraging the latest technologies and architecting solutions that can proactively identify and eliminate these new-age threats.
Organizations are taking steps like patching and updating systems, regularly backing up data, and strengthening real-time defenses to tackle different kinds of attacks. Innovative technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning are being used to predict and accurately identify attacks. Multifactor authentication is being implemented by businesses as they are more secure, usually involving biometrics like voice, retina, and fingerprint recognition, thereby making it harder for an attacker to breach a network. Technologies like encryption and tokenization are applied to protect data, dramatically reducing its exposure and risk. Furthermore, deep learning with its ability to identify safe and unsafe software is a significant boon to security practitioners who seek to decrease the time taken for advanced threat detection and eradication.
In the light of this, a distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, and analysts including the CIO Applications editorial board has evaluated and selected the leading cybersecurity solution providers that have in-depth expertise and are at the forefront of tackling any type of cyber attack.
