SECUDE Offers Cyber Security Predictions for 2016

SECUDE Calls Next Year One of Data-Centric Security Adoption, Security Consolidation, and Continued Data Growth

ALPHARETTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/09/15 -- SECUDE, an SAP partner and a leading data security provider specializing in security for SAP software, today announced its cyber security industry predictions for 2016. With data security needs constantly growing and the variety and number of data security solutions on the market also increasing, there continues to be a great deal of discussion surrounding product purchasing decisions. Now, at the end of 2015, SECUDE President Americas, Michael Kummer, reviewed three of his key predictions about where cyber security emphasis will be placed in the new year.

"Today data protection is paramount. Data is what most attackers want and they will go to extreme lengths to get it. Data owners and custodians, not the IT or security teams, must be responsible for their data from creation," said David Monahan, Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates. "Relying on IT does not scale because there is too much information being created. SECUDE offers organizations using SAP the opportunity to take control of their information security with granular control at the pace of creation and on enterprise scale."

Context-sensitive, pro-active and data-centric data protection solutions will continue to gain momentum
Customers are asking for solutions that protect data at the time of creation. The Ponemon Institute said that only 19% of malicious breaches were discovered by DLP. SECUDE's Michael Kummer stated that "reactive and content-sensitive data protection solutions like DLP are still important as a base layer, but enterprises have realized that they're not enough to ensure data security. Protecting data itself rather than the storage location or communication channel is an incredibly effective way of ensuring sensitive information is secured in our increasingly complex business world, where information cannot be simply contained inside the enterprise borders."

The amount of data will continue to grow, especially outside of data centers
Kummer noted that data outside of the data center is extremely difficult to protect, and this fact increases the importance of data-centric solutions. "We also need to realize that there is no single solution that can solve this problem, and, as such, enterprises must begin to think in layers and integrations. Automated and context-sensitive data classification will be a key issues for the next couple of years, as proper classification is the first step, after auditing, in a comprehensive data protection strategy," said Kummer.

The IT security industry is consolidating
Large players are seeking to broaden their portfolio through acquisition. For instance, Microsoft's recent acquisition of Israeli classification and data protection company Secure Islands strengthens its Rights Management offering. Kummer has predicted that further consolidation in the area of enterprise data classification will take place.

Additionally, regulatory compliance is becoming a hot topic as more data breaches grab headlines. In August, the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld a ruling supporting the FTC to take action against organizations not adequately securing consumer data. Additionally, the EU introduced General Data and Protection Legislation, which would implement new regulation on privacy laws for any organization that possesses personal data. These instances show that data security is also becoming an issue of keeping compliant with regulatory boards. This change will nudge company management to look into more auditing and log collection and analysis solutions that track and detect threat and risk in data movement patterns and user behavior.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
