How Bellwether Cybersecurity Technologies Predict Success

Bellwether cybersecurity technologies — advanced endpoint security, behavioral threat analytics and a trio of cloud-based apps — are used by successful cybersecurity teams. Find out why.

When it comes to cybersecurity, what differentiates highly successful enterprise technology organizations from their less successful counterparts can often be found in the metrics. Extremely effective cybersecurity organizations can detect a potential attack, determine whether it is or isn’t an attack, and contain the damage in a matter of minutes. Less-successful organizations can take days to weeks to do the same.

To find out why some cybersecurity teams are so much more successful, it’s also important to look at what technologies these enterprises use.

Cybersecurity technologies used by successful cybersecurity teams are likely to be in widespread use in the next few years. The bellwether technologies discussed below are often indicators of what’s to come.

Advanced endpoint security’s step up

One such bellwether cybersecurity technology is advanced endpoint security (AES). AES is software that protects endpoints from malware using a variety of mechanisms — typically containerization or microsegmentation. AES represents an architectural step function increase over older whitelist- or blacklist-based antimalware and aligns with key strategic initiatives, such as zero-trust security.
