Endpoint, cloud, people key to future cyber security, says McAfee

Endpoint devices, the cloud and people will be the security control points of the future, according to the chief of security firm McAfee.

Looking to the future of cyber security, endpoints will be redefined, becoming devices of many different kinds, predicts Chris Young, CEO of McAfee.

“Those devices will increasingly connect to applications that are running in the cloud, which will be the key control points for your cyber security architecture,” he told the opening session of the MPOWER Cybersecurity Summit in Las Vegas.

“Those will be the places where you will have to drive your most advanced security capabilities in future if you want to be successful.”

Young also predicted security operations will become a mandate and that getting the most out of those security operations will be critical for any organisation’s ability to deal with a cyber attack.

The next “bold prediction”, he said, is that organisations will increasingly harness automation and orchestration in security operations.
