The increased use of information technology in our everyday life and business has led to cyber-attacks becoming more sophisticated and large-scale. For organizations to thrive in this era of technology, they must develop robust security strategies to detect and mitigate attacks. Defence in depth is a strategy in which companies use multiple layers of security measures to safeguard assets. A well-implemented defence in depth can help organizations prevent and mitigate ongoing attacks.
Defence in depth uses various cutting-edge security tools to safeguard a business’s endpoints, data, applications, and networks. The objective is to prevent cyber threats, but a robust defence-in-depth approach also thwarts ongoing attacks and prevents further damage.
