Inflexion Point for Defense in Depth: The Emerging Role of Hardware


Hardware-based threat detection is not an emerging technology, but one that is becoming increasingly visible today. A number of factors are underlying the importance of defense in depth technologies, not the least being the damaging software supply-chain attacks in trusted programs (e.g., SolarWinds and Kaseya) that have surfaced in the last few years. This is compounded by an increasingly hostile cyberthreat landscape where political discord (pitting the West against Russia and China) is enabling more brazen cybercriminal enterprises to flourish.

But beyond the Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) narrative, there are important breakthroughs in technology development around edge compute that are driving better endpoint processing capabilities, notably the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for detecting host-based threats, and better use of co-processors to offload continuous monitoring and Machine Learning (ML) processes.
