Why should companies adopt a proactive approach to security?
Today, cyberattacks are becoming increasingly more complex and are thus costing companies millions. In order to address this, a whitepaper from Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity insists that a proactive approach to security implementation is key.
Enabling a proactive approach to security
In order to address this challenge, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity recommend the “security by design” approach. This means changing from reactive to proactive solutions in order to prevent incidents instead of merely mitigating them. In security terms, this entails separating the operating system and the browser from one another. By encapsulating the browser with a virtual machine, this protects the PC, data structure of the user, and corporate network from malware. As a result, all aspects of a website run in an isolated environment - without impairing the operating system or the files. Employees are therefore able to safely surf the web at all times, while the network remains protected. As the report states, it is especially important that users do not experience any restriction when using the Internet. A proactive approach to security also relieves enterprises from significant operational and financial risks.
