Companies are using their rear-view mirror to gauge what they did right or wrong to determine their future business trajectory. Security teams are finding it challenging to monitor and safeguard disparate infrastructures. Mainly due to the quickly changing cyber threat landscape, a more distributed workforce, and an increased reliance on the cloud. There is a paralysis of analysis due to the excessive false positive rate of the current security infrastructure. The lack of cybersecurity experts further exacerbates the issue. Businesses should work towards modernizing their cybersecurity operations to achieve cyber resiliency. This article at IT Business Edge by Litton Power speaks about cybersecurity mesh architecture that is gaining traction globally.
What Is Cybersecurity Mesh?
Security mesh is a concept all organizations need to understand and incorporate into their security strategies. According to Gartner, cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA) builds a small perimeter around every critical access point, protecting them from potential breaches through IT security infrastructure design.
Relevance of a Security Mesh
- CSMA is a series of suggestions under the guiding principle that security technologies should get along. Gartner has noted a widening gap in security product interoperability and considerable overlaps in what various licensed tools seek to accomplish. Each instrument will be incorporated into the IT infrastructure as an integrated component of a cybersecurity mesh framework.
- Organizational security is frequently isolated because security tools often do not work with other devices, so vulnerabilities are left exposed.
- The defensive perimeter has become fragmented with the rise in remote work and the prevalence of stray gadgets. Since data is no longer centralized, the old network security perimeter resembles the French Maginot Line, a formidable defense system intruders readily breached.
- Environments for multi-cloud computing require a more unified security strategy.
