Moving Target Defense can embed security in the IT infrastructure,
prevent many of the burdens associated with ‘panic patching.’
BELLEVUE, Wash. & NEW YORK (BUSINESS WIRE) #IT Increased automation afforded by newer security practices, such as
Moving, can alleviate the IT skills shortage in enterprise organizations, according to research released today by
Research. The Business Impact Brief is titled
in Security Can Supplement IT Skills Shortage. Polyverse is the leading cybersecurity company using
Movingto protect government and enterprise organizations.
451 Research is a leading information technology research and advisory
company focusing on technology innovation and market disruption.
The research brief links innovations in security, such as Moving Target
Defense, to supplementing the IT skills shortage. Enterprise
organizations have a shortage of IT administration and networking
skills, led by server/systems administration (43 percent) and DevOps (41percent), according to a
surveyby 451 Research.
“Such skills are the foundation of many practices that may mitigate the
overall volume of IT work, such as automated software patching and other
tasks to maintain healthy and resilient systems,” the 451 Research
Business Impact Brief states. “Increased automation afforded by newer
practices allows security teams to embed security into the IT
infrastructure, and to explore newer approaches that can result in
significant gains in time, skills and resources. One potential area
worth exploring is the concept of Moving Target Defense (MTD)…In
particular, the intrinsic security of MTD can help reduce many of the
burdens of patching.”
“Polyverse MTD transforms software from a static attack surface that is
unchanging and vulnerable to one that is diverse, constantly changing
and protected,” said Polyverse Founder and CEO Alex Gounares. “As a
result, crafted exploits targeting specific memory vulnerabilities do
not work, even when the application is left unpatched.”
Polyverse currently supports the entire linux stack over 70,000
programs and counting, injecting diversity into the software landscape
by randomizing the memory layout of the entire Linux system, without
changing performance or IT processes. Polyverse plans to start
supporting windows next year.
