How Next-Gen Cybersecurity Solutions Work in 2020?
Cyber criminals are now becoming more organized, when it comes to operations and cybersecurity predictions are ranging from more ‘real’ prediction to ‘guess’, which eventually keeps it going. Cybersecurity is one of the key elements for success now and building and effective strategy is much important. Strategies based on the type and area of attack expected is going to make the difference.
Ransomware will be a huge issue in 2020 and attackers realized that businesses have more data and it is easy to target. Hence, the year 2020 will see a rise in targeted enterprise ransomware. However, last year marked the fall of over 70 state and local governments because of the ransomware.

Internet balkanization is the segmentation of one international open Internet into numerous minor internets, and more government efforts to reclaim the Internet with China, Russia and Iran to take technical control over the Internet. It is based on historical precedent from the Russian government ban from the international athletic competitions for four years including the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. There are some countries which banned technology from certain Chinese and Russian companies, hence a greater balkanization is expected. It is necessary to make sure that the organizations have deployed true-next generation solutions, which allows endpoint detection and response (EDR), next-gen AV with behavioural analytics.
