The Security Marketplace TodayFireEye's DeWalt On Widening Security Gap
As the offense, or adversaries, become increasingly sophisticated, the gap between offense and defense has widened, thus causing today's security market and methods to not work as efficiently.
During a video interview with Information Security Media Group, David DeWalt, CEO of FireEye, discusses what is wrong with the market today, and how it can be fixed.
Organizations are given a false sense of security when buying multiple layers of defense, because you the fundamental problem is they all have the same detection engine. If the adversary can defeat that detection engine, it can defeat the entire architecture.
In this interview, DeWalt also discusses:
- How antivirus is lagging behind;
- Why organizations are still being breached;
- Improving detection and response.
