  • Four technologies that could transform information security programs

    With digital transformations underway in many industries, CIOs aren't the only ones who need to have the next big thing on their radar. What security innovations should you follow to ready your organization's information security programs?

    The internet of things is both a security threat and potentially a security boon. Big data, machine learning and a growing number of systems with pseudo artificial intelligence may help ease the workloads of security analysts. Bitcoin's distributed database technology known as blockchain can add security to a variety of systems, but scalability remains an early concern. Quantum computing? That one may be too far out -- five years at least -- to be considered a near-term technology disruptor to enterprise information security programs.

    Whether your organization is focused on manufacturing and infrastructure -- such as industrial control systems -- or consumer and information technology -- such as the internet of things -- everything is rapidly becoming connected and potentially accessible from the internet. Many information security programs are not on track for the internet of things, complex clouds and other technology disruptors. We dust off the crystal ball in this issue of Information Security magazine and ask infosec experts and venture capitalists to look into the future.

  • Cloud access security brokers: Hard to tell what's real

    Most cloud access security brokers offer CISOs a way to set policy and gain better understanding of multiple cloud services and data in use across the enterprise. As CASBs have gained momentum in recent years, use cases for them have expanded. Do these tools fill the gaps around visibility and control of software as a service and other cloud services?

    Although cloud service visibility and data leak protection continue to be the biggest drivers, cloud access security brokers can do more than just help with your shadow IT problem and unsanctioned application activity in the cloud.

    Organizations are increasingly looking to use cloud access security brokers to identify anomalies in data movement between on-premises and cloud apps as well as multiple cloud services. Malware identification and encryption of data have become important. More enterprises are also beginning to use CASBs or similar intermediary security technologies to provide some level of security policy management for custom identity-as-a-service platforms.

    In this issue of Information Security magazine, we look at cloud access security brokers and the best ways to evaluate new models, such as infrastructure as a service and platform security.
