“Zero Trust Has Grown As A Guiding Cybersecurity Strategy For Organisations Worldwide”

Cybersecurity solution is a core technology to help businesses become more secure as they go online and virtual. Digitisation in India has significantly increased in post-COVID-19 world, boosting the need for greater cybersecurity policy. Dipesh Kaura, GM, South Asia Kaspersky said, “We have witnessed an uptick in cybersecurity patent filing and grants in India, demonstrating our country's growing innovation ecosystem. As Big Data, AI, Cloud and other deep tech evolve, cybersecurity operates as a foundational tech across all technologies. For that, we require a spurt in cybersecurity innovation and investment. India's cybersecurity market is dominated by security products leveraged by service companies to enhance their global expertise and knowledge in delivering transformational and platform-based services. As emerging deep tech such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain matures, investment in cybersecurity will be a critical differentiator for businesses delivering such services.”

Increasing Cyber Investment by Indian Organizations

The organizations are proactively increasing their investments towards consolidating the security infrastructure. Cyber incidents have surprisingly increased in recent times and organizations re-evaluating their investment strategies to be ahead in so competitive world. Commenting on the increased investment by Indian organizations, Dipesh Kaura said, “The pandemic and the increasing number of targeted attacks have prompted companies to increase their cybersecurity investments over the past 18 months. The transition in scale, sophistication, and complexness has turned the spotlight onto business resiliency and is further propelling the demand for next-gen cybersecurity products. Security solution providers and partners not only predict cyberattacks even before they occur but also provide complete visibility, advanced detection, reaction, and scalability to the businesses. They offer software tools, standalone solutions, managed services, vulnerability analysis and consulting, and outsourced technical support on their AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) driven platform. The Indian government is encouraging the growth of security solution providers and providing funds for developing cybersecurity infrastructure. India is evolving as a trusted and natural partner of choice for delivering next-gen cybersecurity products globally.”

Zero Trust Security Model Gaining Adoption

In today’s cybersecurity landscape, organizations are changing their approach by adopting new trends. Zero trust is one of such trends which has gained immense acceptance for better cybersecurity solutions. Briefing about why Zero trust model is gaining huge adoption by CTOs/CIOs, Dipesh Kaura stated, “Zero trust has grown as a guiding cybersecurity strategy for organisations worldwide. A Zero Trust security model assumes breach and explicitly confirms the security status of identity, endpoint, network, and other aids based on all available signals and data. It depends on contextual real-time policy enforcement to reach the least privileged access and minimises threats. Automation and machine learning are employed to facilitate prompt detection, deterrence, and remediation of hazards using behaviour analytics and user data. Early adopting organisations that operate with a Zero Trust mindset across their environments are more resilient, responsive, and protected than those with conventional perimeter-based security models. Another motivation why companies are increasingly embracing zero trust is that they want to curb their risks of insider threats. A zero-trust approach will limit users from shifting from resource to resource. Fundamentally, it will not just verify the user and his device but also verify the individual network access components.”
