Why cybersecurity for technology companies is essential
Technology companies stand at the forefront of innovation, but cyberattacks can have staggering financial and reputational impacts. Threat vectors continue to increase, and while AI, machine learning, open-source code and supply chains each present formidable challenges, they all share one common denominator—a pressing need for secure machine identities.
Holistic machine identity management is the key to a resilient technology company, helping you defend the world’s zettabytes of information against ransomware, malware, DDoS attacks and data theft.
The average cost of a breach in the technology industry was $4.97 million in 2022.
Challenges in tech sector cybersecurity
Risky open source code and software supply chains
Open source code can foster collaboration and bring forth new ideas, but it can be a double-edged sword. Regardless, every line needs to be verified before you run it. The same goes for software in your supply chain.
AI and ML: Powerful allies, or potent threats?
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are taking the business world by storm, and hackers are taking notice. Resilient security against advanced threats like these—and beyond—requires complete, continuous visibility of machine activity.
Complex regulatory requirements and talent shortages
Regulations are always changing, and grappling with new PKI and machine identity requirements is difficult if it’s not your area of expertise. Staying compliant requires a modern approach to managing keys and certificates—one that doesn’t hold back innovation.
