2017 Cybersecurity Trends Survey Results Revealed
Versasec announced the results of its 2017 trends in cybersecurity survey of IT professionals around the world. Among the key findings:
- Network security is still a top budget item, but multi-factor ID is on the rise
- Nearly as many IT security chiefs are worried about internal threats as they are external threats
- The arsenal of tools cyber chiefs are using is growing: lots more biometrics, smart cards, PKI use and OTP.
See the full press release about the survey here:

When the National Institute of Standards and Technology said SMS-based, two-factor identification should be put into the scrap heap of history, lots of us in the industry breathed a sigh of relief.

At Versasec, we’ve been saying all along that one-time passwords (OTP) and SMS are far inferior to a true cryptographic logon using smart cards. The chasm between these methods is very deep: An OTP is just a simple code that the user inputs, while a smart card logon is a cryptographic, complex and unique computation.

A recent NetworkWorld blog raised some relevant points about identity management for enterprises.
In it, ESG Cybersecurity Analyst Jon Oltsik says “all organizations should have a plan … for … eliminating user names and passwords.”

At Versasec, we agree. As Oltsik says, “Everything that touches the network should have a pair of asymmetric keys and a digital certificate.” That means by using a PKI – not a one-time password (OTP) solution. This is important: every authentication level has a grade, and, just as in school, not all grades are the same.
