As we lean into the new year, two cybersecurity truths are apparent:
- Threats are occurring at machine-speed
- Defenses must react autonomously, with high-confidence, to interject the kill-chain
Keeping up in today’s threat landscape requires anticipation, autonomous action, and high identity confidence. Modern threat actors have pushed their efforts to edge devices, and defenders must follow. A key take-away: high confidence, local intelligence is needed in order to enable actions that can disrupt an active kill-chain. To achieve this vision, certain tightly held industry-wide assumptions must be critiqued and adjusted accordingly.
