As RSA Conference 2024 concludes, it is evident that complexity and urgency are central themes. Security is no longer confined to perimeter control and encryption but is interwoven throughout the entire tech stack. Safeguarding the network from any vulnerabilities is crucial, and the evolving landscape has elevated security to a boardroom-level concern, beyond the realms of the IT department. 

The keynote address by U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, emphasizes the vital role of security in our economy and country. The Biden administration's commitment to data security is reflected in the United States International Cyberspace and Digital Policy, which outlines substantial investments to enhance technological competitiveness and establish international standards for safe and ethical use of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence. The administration has focused on CyberSecurity in the past, including the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity and guidance from CISA on addressing common misconfigurations that create risk (read Forward Networks' Digital Twin Prevents Misconfigurations Identified by CISA and NSA). 

This theme carried through to our technical consultations in the booth. The attendees wanted to know how to ensure that their networks were compliant, how to streamline CVE remediation, how to improve their ability to isolate compromised hosts in the event of an incident, and how to ensure that their security posture is intact in a hybrid, multi-cloud environment. 

We were able to share how our network digital twin helped a financial services team prove compliance to regulators without hiring the additional 1 – 2 FTEs they had estimated they would need for the work. A FinTech company used Forward Networks to ensure audit compliance while maintaining a flat headcount – without the platform they estimated they would have had to double or triple their compliance headcount.

If you're unable to attend or reading this at a later date, we invite you to schedule a personalized technical session, where we can begin addressing your security challenges.
