Encrypted IoT Traffic Will Challenge SecurityA10's Gangadharan Says Legacy Approaches Cannot Address Emerging Problems
The exponential increase in encrypted internet of things traffic over the next few years will change security dynamics because most security solutions cannot process encrypted traffic, contends Sanjay Gangadharan of A10 Networks.
"One hundred percent encrypted traffic is going to be a reality as we move forward, and that will add to a lot of security-related challenges," Gangadharan says.
"If you bring malware in through a secure tunnel, no security devices are going to be able to challenge this, unless the security infrastructure has the granular capability to understand and identify legitimate application traffic." (See: Fighting Application Layer DDoS Attacks)
In this audio interview (see player link below image), Gangadharan also talks about:
- The anatomy of a multivector application-layer DDoS attack;
- How enterprises are defending against evolving DDoS attacks;
- Why visibility and open networks are extremely important going forward.
At A10 Networks, Gangadharan is regional director for the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation. He has more than 19 years of experience in IT. Gangadharan previously worked at F5 Networks, Palo Alto Networks and several India-based IT companies.
