The Machine Identity Crisis:The Security of Machine-to-Machine Communications
Our increased dependence on machines is so profound that even the definition of machine is undergoing radical change. The number and type of physical devices on enterprise networks has been rising rapidly, but this is outstripped by the number of applications and services they host.
At the same time, cloud adoption has spawned a tidal wave of virtual devices that are created, changed and destroyed. These changes have expanded the definition of machine to include a wide range of software that emulates physical devices.
Download this whitepaper which explores:
- The need for secure and reliable machine authentication to protect machine-to-machine communication;
- The need to create, install, rapidly assess and ensure the integrity of communications between machines;
- Why cyber criminals understand this, and target machine identities for use in a wide range of cyber attacks.
