WHAT DOES AGILE CYBERSECURITY OPERATION MEAN?

The implementation of cybersecurity requires the use of a wide variety of security technologies that help identify and defend against threats. For this, agile operation of cybersecurity describes a new approach to how security companies and their technologies can be used.

THE TRADITIONAL WAY

Use of single cybersecurity products

Security companies usually offer their technologies in the form of security products. This is a common practice so that customers can quickly and easily use the included security technologies for their cybersecurity. However, handling these products is not that easy and quick. It is a long way from the decision-making process to installation, configuration, productive roll-out and product training for employees. It usually takes weeks or even months before a security technology is implemented. If strategic changes are then necessary, the entire process must be repeated. The use of individual security products from individual providers is therefore a very rigid and complex operating mode.

THE AGILE WAY

Agile use of Cybersecurity Technologies

Tabidus Technology is changing the use of security technologies through collaborative security products. For this, the Tabidus Association offers the security companies a joint system in which the respective technologies are embedded. This creates a security product with many different modules that represent the respective provider with its technologies. To start up a security provider, it is now sufficient to activate the relevant module. Which modules, in which combinations, are to be used can be freely decided at any time. This provides an agile operating mode with which security technologies can be used quickly and flexibly and strategic decisions can be implemented by click.

THE NEW OPERATING MODE FOR AGILE CYBERSECURITY

With a collaborative security system, individual products no longer have to be installed in order to use the respective providers. Instead, the system already includes everything that is necessary for their use. This makes the new operating mode available, how security companies can be used.

Agile Activation of Technologies

01 INITIAL INSTALLATION

The collaborative security product contains all available vendor modules in an inactive form and is installed instead of a traditional product.

02 UNLOCK PROVIDERS

The inactive vendor modules can be unlocked at any time, in any combination, with the help of technology licenses and with this are available for use.

03 ACTIVATE TECHNOLOGIES

After unlocking, the technologies of the selected providers appear in the system and can be activated in the various security features as desired.

BENEFITS FROM AGILE CYBERSECURITY OPERATION

If the agile operating mode is used to implement cybersecurity, instead of individual security solutions, this opens up many new perspectives.

Agile activation of technologies

COMMISSIONING ON CLICK

Agile combination of technologies

COMBINATION OF VENDORS

Free choice of providers

FREE CHOICE OF PROVIDERS

For the use of a security company in a collaborative system, only the module of the respective vendor has to be activated. With this, commissioning of the provider takes place on click and does not require a complex implementation of an individual product.

Technology modules can be activated in any number and combination. This means that several security vendors can be used simultaneously in the security features for collective defence against cyber threats.

Although several security providers are available in a collaborative security product, the choice is free. You can decide for yourself which and how many providers you want to activate at any time.

Hot-swap changes with agile operation

HOT-SWAP CHANGES

Agile adaption for every application

ADAPTABLE FOR EVERY APPLICATION

Agile response to security incidents

RESPONSE TO SECURITY INCIDENTS

A technology module is activated or deactivated using the hot swap procedure. This means that changes can be made at any time, during operation, without restarting or reinstalling the product.

The selection of the security vendors can be done separately for each situation. This means that the optimal technologies can be selected for each area of application, instead of trying to cover everything with a single provider.

The agile operation of security companies can also be of help in emergency situations. If a security incident occurs that the selected technologies cannot deal with, other providers and approaches are available to support you on click.

Compliance fulfillment with agile cybersecurity operation

COMPLIANCE FULFILLMENT

UNIFIED OPERATION

Savings through agile cybersecurity operation

SAVINGS

The implementation of multi-vendor strategies is increasingly required to meet the various compliance requirements. The use of a collaborative security product allows you to implement this without increasing operational costs.

Although several providers can be used in a collaborative system, it is still a single product. The number of activated modules within the system has hardly any influence on the operating costs, compared to operating several individual products.

The agile operation reduces the effort for migration projects to change the security landscape and retraining of employees. In addition, the uniform operation of collaborative security products reduces the administrative burden.

AGILE CYBERSECURITY STRATEGIES

The agile operation of security companies opens up new possibilities for designing security strategies. The quick activation of technologies and changes in the hot-swap process mean, that additional planning aspects are available. When and how long do I use a provider? Where and for what purpose do I use which technology and which approach? To give an impression of how diverse agile operations can look like, we present a few examples below.

Permanent agile cybersecurity operation strategy

PERMANENT COMBINATION

A popular strategy is the permanent use of multiple security providers. This approach aims at a general improvement in security in order to increase the detection rate through collective defence. For each security feature, the best providers can be selected for optimal performance and compatibility. Fast investigation techniques for real-time tasks and more complex techniques for time-controlled analyzes.

MONITORING INSTANCES

Security providers can not only be used permanently, but also be activated for certain periods of time. A possible strategy would be to use another provider for spontaneous or regular inspections. This would mean that an additional level of knowledge or another approach would be used to check the security status. These monitoring instances can be used to identify threats that have so far gone undetected.

EMERGENCY USE

Even if only a single security vendor is to be used, the agile operation has its advantages. In the event of a security incident (e.g. a virus outbreak), that the selected technology cannot deal with, help is available on click. Another provider, with the necessary threat detection, can be activated quickly and handle the dangerous situation.

VARIABLE USE

One of the great strengths of agile operations is flexibility. This can be used to select providers that match the security requirements of the respective areas of application. However, it can also be used to pursue the strategy of presenting potential attackers with changing challenges in order to make it more difficult for them to adapt to the attack target. An ongoing rotation of providers is also possible for this.

COLLECTIVE CYBER DEFENCE

The evolution of cyber threats creates a threat landscape that is steadily increasing in size, complexity and diversity. It has thus become impossible for a single security company to identify and prevent all global threats in good time. One of the main tasks of the association is therefore the technical cooperation of security providers to enable a collective cyber defence. Find out here how the interaction of independent security technologies can help you with cybersecurity.

COLLABORATIVE SECURITY SOLUTIONS

Collaborative security solutions are the new way to protect against cyber threats. They allow the flexible activation and combination of security companies on click, within a joint security product. This operating mode provides a new way of dealing with security technologies and new perspectives for designing cyber defence. Get to know the first collaborative systems and convince yourself of their efficiency.
