Digital Defense Provides SaaS, Risk-Based Vulnerability Management Technology as Part of AT&T Cybersecurity Consulting Vulnerability and Threat Management Services, Helping Organizations Discover and Manage Risk Effectively and Efficiently
SAN ANTONIO – December 17, 2020 – Digital Defense, Inc., a leader in vulnerability management and threat assessment solutions, today announced that it is a sponsor of the 2021 AT&T Cybersecurity Insights Report: 5G and the Journey to the Edge. The new report is based on a survey of 1,000 security practitioners from the United States, Canada, India, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, France, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom, conducted during September 2020.
Highlights from the AT&T Cybersecurity report include securing a 5G-enabled world, a discussion of the shared responsibility model of security for 5G between the carrier and the business and the explosion of diverse connected “things” and why security matters.
Digital Defense is a strategic technology provider to AT&T Cybersecurity. Customers benefit from a powerful security solution that includes patented vulnerability scanning technology, proprietary project management services and trademark security metrics to gauge organization security risk. In sponsoring the AT&T Cybersecurity Insight Report, Digital Defense is furthering the collaborative mission to educate organizations about their expanding threat landscape and to manage and mitigate risks efficiently and effectively.
According to the report, “The number of existing vulnerabilities within enterprise networks will not slow down as 5G gets implemented. New vulnerabilities can be created due to spinning up a new virtualized instance or cloning a virtual instance with an unaddressed vulnerability. Security teams will need to be prepared to prevent these threats from spreading rapidly within their environment by addressing those that are most exposed and ripe for attack. This includes comprehensive discovery and identification, prioritization based on internal security controls and external factors such as known exploits in the wild and ongoing patch management and mitigation.
“The proliferation of endpoints combined with an expanding threat landscape compounds the need for next-generation vulnerability management and threat assessment solutions that are scalable and easy to use. AT&T Cybersecurity’s latest report highlights how important it is for organizations to have these security tools at the ready to help secure the 5G ecosystem and expand upon their existing threat detection and response efforts,” said Mike Cotton, senior vice president of engineering at Digital Defense.
“Identifying the importance of cybersecurity for connected assets such as applications, endpoints and users is critically important as we see 5G adoption in businesses gain traction and drive business differentiation,” said Theresa Lanowitz, director of cybersecurity communications, AT&T Cybersecurity. “5G technology is revolutionary, and security professionals expect that 5G will require a change to their security approach in order to accommodate the network changes. Having Digital Defense as one of the sponsors of our report helps to highlight the continuing importance of cybersecurity in a hyperconnected world.”
