You can’t fight what you can’t see. Cliché as it may sound, cybercriminals are using organizations’ lack of network visibility as a cornerstone for their attack strategies. Savvy threat actors are encrypting their malware payloads to cloak attacks and defeat standard security controls. At RSA Conference 2018 in San Francisco, SonicWall president and CEO Bill Conner spoke with TechRepublic about the rapidly changing cyber arms race and the need to properly detect and inspect encrypted traffic, which made up 68 percent of all web traffic in 2017 — a 24 percent year-over-year increase from 2016.
The 2018 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report reported a 71.2 percent decline in the number of ransomware attacks, but a 101.2 percent increase the number of ransomware variants. Let me ask you, is this good news or bad? If this was a military battle, would you celebrate the news the enemy reduced the number of machine guns by nearly three quarters but doubled the number of snipers?

Endpoint protection has been a cyber security standard for years. But during RSA Conference 2018 at the Moscone Center, it’s clear that it remains a core security challenge for many organizations. Likewise, many cyber security vendors are offering new and better ways to protect end points. While technology for machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud and application security all still had their place in the RSA speaking sessions, a new era of endpoint protection that’s connected, transparent and easy to manage was on display.
