The threat landscape certainly has changed in recent years. But can you say the same about the traditional intrusion prevention system."The biggest problem with IPSs today is that organizations are trying to fight today's threats with yesterday's solutions," says Bertone, who serves as CTO of Fidelis Cybersecurity.
"These were attacks that were visible in the packet stream - often visible within a single packet. And the problem is: Today the vast majority of threats that traverse networks are not visible in the packet stream. The attacks that really matter today don't break down the front door. They're invited into the organization by humans, and what they really attack is the carbon layer, as opposed to the server layer."
