Navigating the Digital Minefield: A Closer Look at Cybersecurity in 2023 

No Gravatar

As we step into 2024, it’s hard to believe that another year has flown by.

Happy New Year!  

As we look back on 2023, we’re grateful to our partners who have worked tirelessly with Wedge, successfully thwarting millions of cyberattacks across various connected systems worldwide. Their dedication has been instrumental in maintaining the digital safety of countless users. As we embark on a new year, let’s reflect on some of the critical cybersecurity challenges and breakthroughs of the past year and how they are shaping our approach to digital security.

In a notable development last year, Microsoft disabled one of its own software tools in response to its exploitation by hackers for malware distribution (For more details, you can read the full article on Techradar here).  This move highlights the ongoing battle in cybersecurity, where vulnerabilities in common software modules can lead to significant damages. With a record-breaking 26,447 vulnerabilities discovered in 2023 (SiliconAngle article here), the highest number ever disclosed, it’s clear that the digital world is fraught with both known and unknown risks. 

As illustrated by the aforementioned Techradar article,  these vulnerabilities enable hackers to launch effective pop-up or phishing attacks, dragging in lethal malware. This recurring theme has led to significant financial damages over the years. Microsoft’s proactive measure to disable its vulnerable tool helped mitigate one such threat. However, this raises the question: what about the numerous other known or unknown vulnerabilities? 

To address these threats, several proven threat prevention technologies are used. These include intrusion prevention systems to thwart network-based vulnerability exploits, web filtering solutions to block malware download paths, and various content filtering solutions to prevent malware delivery. However, while these solutions are effective against known malware, they are often less effective against novel malware types. Traditionally, the industry has relied on slower and more expensive sandbox solutions for these new threats. 

As our partners already knew, WedgeARP orchestrates these effective network defense technologies into a software-defined network stack. It utilizes the latest machine learning models to implement real-time, network-based “sandbox” algorithms, ensuring real-time threat protection for all connected systems. This capability is crucial for adapting to today’s complex networks, which include edge, cloud, WiFi, mobile data, IoT, etc. 

In 2023, through several successful R&D initiatives and piloting deployment, Wedge technology has further matured into several formats, including the WedgeARP v3.x software release, Edge network systems like Wedge Secure Edge (WSE) and Wedge Cloud Edge(WCE), and cloud services platforms such as Wedge Cloud Network Defense (WCND). 

As we step into 2024, our focus is on strengthening our partnerships and leading the way in cybersecurity innovation. We are reaching out to our existing partners to share the latest advancements in cybersecurity technology through our exclusive product technology briefings. These sessions are pivotal for understanding how cybersecurity solutions can be tailored to meet evolving security challenges. If you are not yet a partner but are keen to learn how Wedge can assist in bolstering your initiative, we encourage you to get in touch. Please send your inquiries to info@wedgenetworks.com and our team will be delighted to guide you through how our technologies can be a part of your security strategy. Together, let’s embrace a secure and prosperous 2024.

Mr. O’Higgins has over 30 years experience as a leader in security technology development—best known for his role pioneering PKI (public key infrastructure)—and as the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Entrust, a leading Internet Security Company. He was also a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Third Brigade, an enterprise security company that was acquired by Trend Micro in 2009. Brian’s approach to security is both visionary and pragmatic. He is a frequent presenter at security and industry events around the globe, and a founding author and contributor to the Cloud Security Alliance. He is often sought out as an industry expert by the press to comment on current events related to cyber security. Brian’s current list of affiliations includes advisory board positions with Defence R&D Canada, the Ontario Centers of Excellence, Board Chair for Quantum Safe Canada, and as an Executive Fellow with Mistral Venture Partners. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Identos, and is an advisor for Crypto 4A, APX, Zighra, Infosec Global and Bluink.

The attack surface area is expanding rapidly, and this gives rise to increasing concerns about safety and security against a rising tide of malicious actors. Safety becomes a primary concern now, rather than just theft. Continuous attention is necessary to ensure our critical infrastructure is resilient to these attacks, and new security technology always plays a welcome role.” said Brian O’Higgins.
