RSA Advocates Need for New Risk-Based, Contextual Security

With an eye on enlightening organisations on the dynamics of emerging threats, executives from RSA delivered a keynote address at a gathering of IT professionals wherein they highlighted the fact that the possibility of an organisation’s systems being compromised is just a matter of time.

Executives from the security division of EMC gave an advice to the assembled security professionals that at present IT organisations are experiencing threats that are dynamic and intelligent in nature which makes them rather susceptible to compromise.

The way to fight these threats, according to them, is by recognizing different tactics and tools used against these attacks and automate the response of the controls to defend various information assets, isolate compromised elements and finally ensure that compromise in the network does not lead to business loses.

To save oneself from the onslaught of increasingly advanced threats, security programs must be developed to be risk-based, agile in nature and also contextual. Further comprehensive security can only be achieved through host of measures that acknowledge the current security paradigm.

RSA has also announced software developer kits aimed at mobile developers. These kits are tailored to help mobile apps developers develop strong layers of security and also control access into leading mobile application platforms.
