Advanced Technology Is At the Forefront of Cybersecurity

FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary

NEW YORK, March 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cybersecurity has become a major industry with a pronounced growth potential. The recent surge in data breaches, business and agency hacks, as well an international scandal revolving around an unlawful access of vaccine data are just some of the reminders of how fragile the global information infrastructure is. A few examples of major attacks from 2020 include the Nintendo breach from April, where 160,000 users were affected by a mass account hijacking; the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) breach, where 8,000 business emergency loan applications were breached; the Amtrak customer PII leak; Intel's 20GB of sensitive, corporate data breach, and of course, the FireEye hack that resulted in penetration tools being stolen from one of the world's largest security firms. Insufficiently secured personal devices, home routers, the transfer of sensitive information over unsecured or unsanctioned channels like instant messaging apps, personal e-mail addresses and cloud-based document processors are all expected to play a key role in future data breaches and hacks. Plurilock Security Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205188631/delayed CA:PLUR +3.92% /zigman2/quotes/222466015/composite PLCKF +7.83% , CyberArk Software Ltd. /zigman2/quotes/206810080/composite CYBR +4.01% , McAfee Corp. /zigman2/quotes/221852118/composite MCFE +4.12% , SolarWinds Corporation  /zigman2/quotes/208088323/composite SWI +1.56% , CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/212513426/composite CRWD +3.74%

The emergence of new technologies such as IoT, BYOD, AI, and machine learning is a factor contributing to the spike of hacks, as well as a mitigating factor. For example, adoption of M2M/IoT connections demands strengthened cybersecurity services in enterprises, yet machine learning provides advantages in outlier detection, much to the benefit of cybersecurity. Overall, according to data published by Mordor Intelligence, the cybersecurity market was valued at USD 161.07 Billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 363.05 Billion by 2025, while registering a CAGR of 14.5% during 2020-2025.

Based on SolarWinds' investigation, this malware could be deployed through an exploitation of a vulnerability in the Orion Platform. Like other software companies, SolarWinds seeks to responsibly disclose vulnerabilities in its products to customers, while also mitigating the risk that bad actors seek to exploit those vulnerabilities, by releasing updates to their products before the company discloses the vulnerabilities.

"Remote work has redefined the playing field between cyber attackers and defenders, and that's clearly demonstrated in the CrowdStrike Services Cyber Front Lines Report. Corporate networks now span both office and home, providing a wealth of new attack surfaces and vectors that adversaries can exploit," said Shawn Henry, chief security officer and president of CrowdStrike Services at CrowdStrike. "Holistic coordination and continued vigilance are key in detecting and stopping sophisticated intrusions. Because of this, we're seeing a necessary shift from one-off emergency engagements to continuous monitoring and response. This will better enable incident response teams to help customers drastically reduce the average time to detect, investigate and remediate from 162 hours to less than 60 minutes."
