In the wake of digitalization, adopting innovative technological infrastructures is the key to success for most organizations as potential threats like malware, phishing attacks, identity theft, and ransom-ware circumnavigate around the security standards to extract critical information. As these security threats can level up from being vulnerabilities to a standard crisis, information security solution providers have developed a suite of advanced information security solutions for protecting the vital assets of an organization. Apart from providing encryption key management, network intrusion detection systems, and password policies, these security solutions also safeguard an organization’s data from unauthorized access, use, replication, or destruction.
Built around confidentiality, integrity, and availability, information security programs ensure that a company’s critical information is accessed by sanctioned parties on request only. Recently, the implementation of GDPR has led global organizations to upgrade their security protocols as it has now become a mandate to track the digital data while conducting operations in and around Europe. Alongside security upgrades in terms of compliance and regulations, technology has been playing a significant role in enhancing every aspect of information security. With the latest applications of SIEM, Blockchain, antivirus, and data loss prevention software, the conventional techniques that cyber attackers used to extract information have become obsolete these days. Moreover, the adoption of data analytics technologies like user entity and behavior analytics streamline organizations to identify loopholes in their security structures and establish stricter control over their IT infrastructures.
In an effort to assist companies to optimize their business processes, a panel of prominent CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, along with the CIO Applications Europe's editorial board has assessed scores of information security solution providers and shortlisted the ones that are distinctively prominent in the field.
