We don't need to look very far to see the increasing risk to servers as well as the inadequacy of existing solutions to stem the flow of successful attacks. Servers are easily accessible around the world; they allow direct interaction from thousands or even millions of users, and typically contain information assets of high value to attackers.
Current protection schemes rely heavily on reactive approaches to security that are ineffective and inefficient. The security profession has long held that a proactive approach to security that starts with "default deny" is superior to the "default allow" situation we are in today. But the traditional obstacle to any lockdown approach has been the false positive - the potential for disruption of legitimate applications.
