Liran Tancman is the CEO of CyActive, a predictive cyber security company. In this interview he talks about fighting malware, emerging threats, artificial intelligence and the cloud.
Why is fighting malware today an expensive and time-consuming endeavor?
The current cyber security paradigm is a reactive cycle: if and when a threat is exposed, it is analyzed and a counter- solution is designed. Response times vary from weeks to years. Even if a solution is made available, attackers can easily modify the original code, evade the updated security measures, and continue from where they left off. Attackers keep adapting to the evolving defenses, despite the significant efforts exerted by cyber defenders in both enterprise and the cyber security vendor community.
